NOTE THE CHANGE IN VENUE!
It has been a long-held tradition here at Concord that leavers have the chance to come back to catch up with old friends and teachers that they met during their time at the college. Last year we were unable to hold a reunion due to the pandemic but we are delighted to report that this year we are planning to meet up again.
Dr and Mrs Truss would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you on this lovely occasion, with the added very special opportunity to say a proper goodbye to Mr and Mrs Hawkins and to celebrate your time at Concord.
The event will take place on Saturday 18th December, starting with a reception at Netley Hall Estate at 5pm for a glass of sparkling wine and three course meal at 7pm. There will be dancing, a photo booth and plenty of other photo opportunities in these beautiful surroundings.
