It was a good turn-out of 23 friends, who all left the College in summer 1979, for their annual reunion on Thursday 13 October.

Chris Porter, who organised the get-together, said: 'A very good time and catch-up was had by all at Davy's Plantation House restaurant and bar in the City. It'll happen again next year so any leaver from 1979 who would like to sign up please contact me at  - we'd love to see you!'
