Former pupils and staff members from Harrogate’s Ashville College have gathered in the town for their annual reunion.
More than 100 old boys, old girls and former teachers, attended a black tie dinner at the Masonic Hall, where they heard speeches from immediate past president David Bulmer, who proposed the toast to the “College”, and Ashville College Headmaster, Mark Lauder, who proposed the toast to the Ashvillian Society.
After the meal, entertainment was provided by Gig Fear, a five-piece band whose drummer, Jon Sanderson, is an old Ashvillian.
The following day saw OAs return to the school for the Ashvillian Society’s 116th Annual General Meeting, followed by a Celebration Service in the Soothill Hall, Pimms Reception, and Ashville 1st XI v OAs Cricket Match.
