Old Hulmeians Annual Dinner 2017 Announced

We’re delighted to announce that this year’s Annual Dinner will be held at:

Davyhulme Park Golf Club
Gleneagles Road
Davyhulme
Manchester M41 8SA

on Saturday 8th April, 2017.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons it is not possible to hold the dinner at the School, so we have opted to hold the dinner in the splendid art deco clubhouse.

I am delighted that Lin Leadbetter has agreed to be or guest speaker.

Lin was a pupil at WHGS from 1983 to 1990.He subsequently studied Astrophysics at Durham University graduating in 1994, just! Following a period in the military he managed to sign for a professional rugby team in Australia where he played for 1 year before returning to the UK and literally wrestling himself into a job on the trading floor of the futures market. Awaking one day with a change of heart he has subsequently retrained as a doctor practicing as both a GP and A&E doctor in Greater Manchester.

In addition, the Principal of WHGS Peter Mulholland has agreed to speak.

we are hoping that a number of teaching staff (both past and present) will be in attendance at the dinner, so you have an opportunity to renew old acquaintances.

Please join us for a complimentary glass of cava and canapes from 6:30 pm

Time: Dinner is 7:00 pm for 7:30 pm

Bar: A cash bar will be available from 6:00 pm and a selection of wines will be available for purchase from the bar.

Dress Code: Lounge suites/smart.

Hulmeians Cross-Country Season 2012-2013

We have had two very successful weekends at Hardraw. In October 2013, 22 of us ascended the Howgills in beautiful weather. We lingered over tea and cakes in Sedbergh before the evening meal at The Moorcock Inn at Garsdale Head.

In May, 19 people cam to Hardraw. As we left Horton in Ribblesdale the weather conditions were dreadful – cold and wet with a cloud base at 1000 feet. The objective was Pen-y-ghent via Hull Pot. Four of the party turned back at Hull Pot but the rest braved it and went over the summit. The evening meal at The White Hart in Hawes was excellent.

Hull Pot - May 2013
From left to right: Frank Cosgrove, Stuart Clayton, Paul Marlton, Julian Simmons, Mavis England, Isabelle Davis, Jane Davis, Elzabeth Clayton, Malcolm Booker, Jane Gaskell, Emily Gaskell

Newcomers to the group were David Fisher (ex-staff WHGS), Paul and Moira Hunt, Rachel Cosgrove (Frank’s wife), Phil and Jake Jane Gaskell and daughter Emily, Pete and Jane Davis and daughters Annaruth and Isabelle.

Unfortunately, it appears that Harris House will not be available again due to the recent sale of it by WHGS.

John Hardy, one of our founder members who was also the steward of Harris House, has moved home to Morpeth in Northumberland. Therefore we do not expect to see him so frequently on our outings. John has been the backbone of our cross-country section and will be sorely missed. We don’t know how to thank him for all the hard work that he has done for our weekends at Harris House over the last 14 years.

Our monthly meetings at Lyme West Parkgate have continued but the number attending has been on average only 5 although 11 different people have come during the season. The regulars have been John Hardy, Bryan and Mavis England, Malcolm Booker, John Wright and Paul Marlton.

Regulars who have come during the seasons, either to Hardraw or Lyme, are Geoff and Brenda Roberts, Chris Bryans, Dudley Harrop, Keith and Thora Leach and Graham Bennett. We have also welcomed John Cunningham, Louise and Alison Hardy and 6 members of Paul Marlton’s family.

In Spring 2013, a new group of 10 people did the ‘Coast-to-coast Walk’ – St. Bee’s Head to Robin Hood’s Bay. The group was Bryan and Mavis England, John and Louise Hardy, Malcolm Booker, Graham Bennett, Alan and Joyce Simkin, David Myers and Jack Warner.

Anyone interested in getting involved with the cross-country section should get in touch with Paul Marton at marlton.p.k@btinternet.com.

Xmas Lacrosse Gathering 2014

Following the success of last year’s event, there will be a Hulmeians lacrosse gathering this Christmas on Saturday December 6th 2014.

From 2.00pm onwards, meet at Brooklands Sports Club to watch all/part of the Brooklands Hulmeians home lacrosse match.

From 4.00pm onwards, meet in the bar at Brooklands for post-match drinks.

There will be a Chinese/Thai meal later on for all those interested.

WHGS Career Days – 1st & 2nd July 2013

On 1st & 2nd July 2013, WHGS held a two day Challenge of Management conference, working through a variety of business scenarios with the Lower Sixth.

The students were split into groups, and were assigned tasks throughout the two days. Each group required a group adviser, who helped guide the students throughout the two days.

We are constantly looking for OHA members to act as group advisers at these Career Days, and ask anyone who might be interested in future events to contact us at oha@oldhulmeians.org.
