BGS Cross Country Club’s Heaton Woods OB event

It gives us great pleasure to announce the BGS Cross Country Club’s inaugural Heaton Woods Old Bradfordian event.

The Brownlee Pavilion will be open from noon for changing, with the aim of meeting at the traditional starting point on Redburn Road for 12.30. There will be two run options, with the hope of catering for different levels of current fitness. Afterwards the plan is to reconvene in the pavilion and chat over fish and chips. In the evening, some may wish to continue the social element of the event by joining us down at the ‘Mucky Duck’.

For those of you who remember Tony Kingham and Selby Brock, it is worth pointing out that they will, of course, be invited.

Please register your interest by emailing Mike McCartney on mm@bradfordgrammar.com

Saturday 21 September

OBA Annual Dinner 2019

The Annual OBA Dinner is returning to School this year, with catering provided by County Catering.

Please make a note of the date – more information and invitations will follow.

We are intent on making this event a great success and with this in mind we hope that you will spread the word amongst as many OBs as possible. In particular we are keen to have a good representation of former girl pupils bearing in mind that 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the School becoming fully co-educational. As always partners and other guests will of course be most welcome.

Please register your interest by emailing oldbradfordians@bradfordgrammar.com.
