Hello

Welcome to the University of Portsmouth Alumni Association blog.

Geographers from 1982-1985 reunite in Pompey

Geographers from 1982-1985 reunite in Pompey

A beautiful typical Southsea summers day welcomed us on July 4. The fact that the Uni were having an Open Day at the same time brought back even more memories but we resisted the temptation to take a trip round the department .

There were quite a few people who couldn’t make it so instead of about 20 we found ourselves low in number but very high in quality. Those attending were:-

Martin Davies
Kate Arnold
Dawn Buzzard nee Lammin
Richard Welbourne
Sarah Welbourne nee Fagan
Mr Roger Kidney
Rachel Rosser nee Geary
Julian Rosser
 

The meeting point was the Old Custom House, then the Still and West and finishing in the Barley Mow. So a mix of new and old haunts.

It really was a superb day filled with sun, laughter and a few drinks (thanks Martin for introducing me to vodka and Malibu).  Thanks go to those who made the trip as people really did travel some miles.

We were all BA Hons Geographers from 1982-85 so we need to see the return of the BSC crew next time…and talking of next time…

 .... for those who couldn't make it we raised a glass to them and talked about the next get together... Possibly 2 years’ time to celebrate 35 years of starting at Pompey......it’s a must!
