1940s and 1950s Reunion

On behalf of Ian Kay (1941 M) and others, we would like to invite any SVS leavers from the 1940s and 1950s to lunch at 12.30pm on Tuesday 5th March 2019 at the Royal Air Force Club. The meal in the club's Battle of Britain suite is an opportunity for Old Suttonians from both decades to come together, reminisce about their respective time at the School and hear about SVS today.



This has been a very successful reunion over many years organised by Ian Kay for leavers of his vintage. Unfortunately, the event is now beginning, inevitably, to reduce in numbers. By extending the invitation to a wider group including the 1950s leavers, we hope to reinvigorate it and continue the popular event for years to come. 

The event is due to start with drinks in the RAF Club bar at 12.00pm, before heading into the restaurant for 12.30pm. There is no pre-registration fee for the three-course event, the group simply splits the bill at the end of the meal. In past years this has been around £30.00. If you would like to attend, we would request that you let us know by emailing the Development Office.
