On Saturday 14 September we held our third Oldest OLs’ Day, and were pleased to welcome over 100 guests, ranging in age from 76 – 98 years old.
The oldest OL attending, Philip Dale, was at Lancing between 1928 – 1932 and was a contemporary of Bishop Trevor Huddleston.
Everyone met in the foyer outside the Megarry Room for a drinks reception and then moved into lunch where the Head Master welcomed them and the Very Reverend Christopher Campling said grace. Christopher was a pupil at Lancing during the war years and then returned here in the sixties as Chaplain. The noise from conversations in the Megarry Room was proof that the day was full of memories and re-acquaintance of old friendships for many there.
