Following the disappointment at having to cancel our 50th Reunion due to the pandemic, three of our set decided to arrange a get-together. So, on 15th June 2022 twenty-two members of Set 96 met up at The Bishop’s Finger, Smithfield to celebrate and reminisce about our time at Barts.
We were able to catch up with old friends, sharing memories, photos and experiences of the past 7 years, since our last reunion. It also afforded us the opportunity to thank Angela Underdown for all her hard work that went into producing the book “The Reunion”, a wonderful memento of our time at Barts. The day ended with us having a photo of the group by The Fountain in The Square, something we do every time we meet up.
Our thanks to the League Benevolent Committee for sending flowers to three set members who were not well enough to join us in London. Our thanks also go to Jane, Sue, and Denise for arranging the occasion and our ‘Barts’ bags, and to Jane Lax for the delicious cake, without which a Set 96 get-together would not be complete! The venue was perfect and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful.
We are now looking forward to our 55th reunion in three years’ time!
