This year the 3rd annual Golf Day will once again be held at Walmley Golf Club, as with previous years the format will be 4 ball stableford. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get your tee time. £75 per person including bacon bap and a buffet lunch.
The 2018 OVA Sports Reunion will see a new format be introduced. The aim is to get smaller teams of alumni from particular year groups coming back to Vesey to compete against both current students, and other alumni. Exact details are still to be confirmed, but there will be competitions in 6-a-side cricket, 7-a-side hockey, netball, tennis and rowing. The aim is for all activities to finish around the same time (roughly 7pm), and then we hope to celebrate the achievements of the winners with a BBQ and some refreshments. With the move from Sunday to Saturday, hopefully alumni will be able to stay around Sutton late into the evening, and move on to some of Sutton's finest establishments to reminicise about your time at Vesey.
We are trying to expand the range of activities organised by the OVA. In the second half of this year we are arranging a series of evening talks in Old Big School. The first of these is set for Wednesday 27 June at 7.30. The speaker will be Stephen Roberts (1970-77) who writes books about Victorian Birmingham. His talk will be titled 'What was it like to live in Victorian Birmingham?' Stephen is an experienced public speaker and this should be an interesting and enjoyable event. However, if the OVA is going to flourish, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. Please make a note of the date in your diary and do your best to attend.
