Preston Grammar School Association

The Association's page for Events, Photographs and Special Items

This page is intended, initially, to provide a central location for the Association's photograph archive - the pictorial record of the various doings of the members, from the formal (the Annual Dinner) to the calamitous (the 2010 Bowls tournament) and all places in between. All contributions are welcome, provided there is some connection (however tenuous) with the PGSA.

News Items

The Annual Dinner 2014 took place at the Samlesbury Hotel - the same venue as in recent years (once known as the "Five-barred Gate", and more recently as The Swallow). The guest speaker was Bob Reeves, a former pupil of the School and currently President of the English RFU. The usual splendid evening was enjoyed by all.

The 2014 visit to Preston North End took place on 18th February, 4 days after the death of Sir Tom Finney, at the age of 91. The scarves, shirts and other items are a tribute to this modest, unassuming gentleman who was also the best player ever to adorn PNE and England shirts. Pix below.

Ron Challen, an Old Boy of the School, played a significant part in the activities at Bletchley Park during WWII. With the help of a friend he recorded his memoirs electronically and these have now been issued on a set of 4 DVDs. More information about these, and an order form, can be seen here.
