Old Rendcombians gather for annual Cricket Event
Glorious sun greeted returning Rendcombians this month when they came back to College for the annual reunion and cricket match on 3 July.
The damp conditions from the night before lead to an impromptu several-a-side football match whilst the cricket pitch dried out. Recent Leavers were joined by slightly older Rendcombians who all put on a convincing display of sportsmanship.
The players all came down to Main College for the well-loved match lunch and they were joined by leavers from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Reminiscences and laughter abounded over lunch with many conversations starting “Do you remember when…?”. The Old Rendcombian Society made a presentation to Mrs Dodd in recognition of her leaving after many years’ service to the College. The cricket match commenced in the afternoon with families joining the alumni Up Top (as it has always been known among the alumni) and enjoyed a splendid tea of sandwiches and eclairs.
Development Manager, Hannah Boydell said: “It was such a fantastic day and we’re delighted that so many of the alumni have come back for the day. There was such a buzz created by the alumni, both older and younger, and I hope that reunions in the future are so well attended!”
