Between  5 and 7 May 2011, 23 medical alumni reunited in Bath for a successful weekend of special events to celebrate 46 years since qualifying in medicine.  Organiser Roger Stevens (Medicine, 1965) reports that, “the reunion went very well.”

On Friday evening, alumni met at the Bath and County club.  Roger told us that, “the evening was a great success and the Bath and County club was an ideal venue. My favourite moment of the weekend was the sight, on a nice sunny evening, of a gradually increasing gathering, faces wreathed in smiles of recognition and/or puzzlement!  Such was the buzz in the air that one attendee, from Canada, jumped to his feet and made an impromptu speech. I read out the apologies of those who were unable to come and we dispersed to our various hotels.” On Saturday, alumni arranged themselves in groups to enjoy the pleasures of Bath and then reconvened together for dinner at the Hole in the Wall.  The reunion was rounded up on Sunday when the group met at the lovely house and garden of Robin and Edith Finlay for a buffet lunch. Although Roger nominally arranged the reunion, he wanted to recognise that Robin and Edith put in a huge amount of work and are largely responsible for its success.  Roger wishes to thank all those alumni who attended and hopes that they enjoyed the reunion.
