The Old Godhelmian Association (OGA)

Keeping in Touch


As circulated by email (but with many bounces):


Dear OGA member


We are sorry to inform you that the officers and committee of the Association will be unable to continue as from now, due to ill health, relocation and advancing years.


We are conscious that this is the year for the biennial Reunion, with the college provisionally booked for 20 October, but this will not be possible unless a new committee can be formed. That said, Judy Stoker and I are very happy to advise as to past procedures.


We therefore invite your thoughts as to how take 20 October forward, and indeed on the future of the Association. We look forward to hearing from you and are very hopeful that a new committee can be formed. It would be a shame if the Association has to be archived.


Talking of which, I am in contact with Surrey County Council’s archivist who is keen to explore the possibilities of gathering items about GGS together for the sake of posterity.


I am assured by the Information Commissioner’s Office that we will be exempt from the requirements of the new Data Protection Act (effective 18 May).  This email is going to every email address we have, though I fear a number will bounce where mailboxes have been changed or are no longer in use. A few OGs have requested postal notification, and we shall accommodate them.


Yours in anticipation


Mike Brayshaw
