THE CHAIRMAN’S ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE 2019 ANNUAL REUNION.
“The consequence of the closing of Dixie in 1969 inevitably created a diminishing
supply of former students and it is clear that the Annual Reunions are not sustainable.
The committee has decided that the next reunion in October 2020 will be the last,
although the organisation will continue as an archive and facilitator of contacts
We hope that you will join us for our very special valedictory reunion and persuade
as many people as you can to come along.
We appreciate that it has been an annual pilgrimage for many of you over the years.
Anne Jones was a driving force behind the establishment of the DGSA and with her
passing it is perhaps fitting that its role should be redefined. “
Peter R. J. Smith B. Ed (Oxon), M. Phil , Chairman, 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.
