The 2021 AGM and Fun Day - Tavistock!

Held at an exciting new venue

As you will all know by now, Warwick School was not able to host our 2021 Event.  Up stepped Charles Knape who as pulled out all the stops to organise an event for us at Kelly College in Tavistock.

It was an amazing success.  Huge thanks to Charles.  A full Review of the Day will appear in the Winter Nutwood Newsletter - but to be there and see the Rupert hot-air balloon inflated for what is likely to be the very last time was amazing.  You can find a shorter review with photos and videos on this site.  Look at the "Followers' AGM and Annual Fun Day" section below or just click here to go straight to the review.
