For over one hundred years the Old Camdenians have been held to account by their Annual General Meeting where reports and accounts are verified and new officers and committee members appointed. It is no surprise that it is held on the same day as our annual dinner/lunch, therefore the numbers of members attending have been quite high. In 2020, owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic social distancing rules our annual get together was postponed, however, we did hold our 111th AGM via Zoom where Alex Bols, Chair of Governors at Beacon High School, held up his glass of red wine and toasted all Old Camdenians for their continued support and very generous donations towards the Chromebook Fund. There followed a discussion in breakout rooms with members from around the world and a showing of Brian Lofts award winning silent film ‘The Prefects’ (1961).
This year we have another opportunity to dine at the school and hold our 112th AGM in person. This will be George and Pam Ives last lunch so we will be wishing them farewell, however, we hope to see you and them again in 2022, so watch this space.
