Reunion 2020

At it’s Meeting on 23/06/20 the Committee took the decision to

postpone the DGSA’s Final Reunion until October 2021.

29 June 2020

The pandemic has created, for many of us, the most remarkable, challenging and worrying times of our lives. You may have been sheltering at home and only able to maintain contact with friends and family by phone or the internet and you may have been reliant upon others for your shopping. Hopefully you will have enjoyed the peace of your garden, warm sunny weather and some quality entertainment on TV.

As members of the DGSA you are likely to be amongst those most affected and, despite any reassurances from government, you may be reluctant to risk attending the Reunion in October. It is still unclear how much the virus is spreading or what the status will be in three months time. We also have to consider the implications for the school. It is with these, and many other considerations in mind that on Tuesday 23 June the committee reached a decision to postpone the event to October 2021.

We know that this will be disappointing but felt it was the best decision we could take under the circumstances. Please stay safe and well and keep an eye on the DGSA website for updates and news. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Peter Smith

Chair DGSA

Peter Loseby, a former Committee Member and active supporter of DGSA, in his capacity as a member of the Market Bosworth Society was invited, by the management of the Bosworth Hall Hotel, to give a talk to their guests and visitors tracing the Dixie Line from 1589 through 1975. The talk was part of the hotel's contribution to Tourism Week. Amongst the audience was Lady Caroline Dixie who afterwards congratulated Peter on a fascinating talk about her family's history.
