Chairman’s letter – United Kingdom Branch

/ Old Boys / United Kingdom Branch

The United Kingdom Branch has had a splendid year! Since our reorganisation in 2014, we continue to be governed by our Branch Constitution which takes its lead from the Club Constitution.

The highlight of the year has been the big step forward in communication –of particular note has been the centralising of the Old Boys database in Balgowan; access to the School’s graphics team for production of invitations and reminders; direct support from the Club in deploying communications and announcements; and the launch of the Old Boys app. All of these combined have allowed us to substantially optimise / professionalise how we communicate and deliver the same number of events with excellent turnout and much less effort which had allowed thinking and actions to begin on other things. Special thanks must go to Robyn Gruijters for consistently going above and beyond the call of duty to help and organise us.

In 2019, we arranged SEVEN successful events. One in Edinburgh, five in London, and one just outside London. Of these, three were joint events with the Old Hiltonian UK Branch.
