We had a good year last year in relation to the OBA, there was an especially successful reunion dinner to celebrate the 30 years of co-education in the College. The Association is still working to foster a partnership relationship with the College which is going well so far, we had a successful Old Brightonians Day in September which was the first of many we hope, since the College has now adopted Commemoration Day for its speech day and graduation ceremony, so we will see how the OB day works in the next few years. We would like to stress that all OBs are still welcome to attend the St Peter's Day service on commemoration day, despite the day not being dedicated in the same way to Old Brightonians. Any feedback on events would be appreciated.
We have co-opted Nicky Stanton onto the OBA committee to work specifically on promoting the womens sports areas - we had a great netball match on 13th September against the College and we were proud to win after a very close and exciting match, netball seems to be quite a different game to when I was at school!!
Please feed back to me or Fiona Aiken in the OB office if there are events which you would like to see more of,
Best wishes for 2004!
