The annual Carmarthen Boys’ Grammar School reunion dinner takes place next month.
It is being held at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel on Saturday 7th July 2018 at 5.00 for 5.30pm. Dress code is lounge suit or blazer.
All former pupils and staff are invited to the event, organised by the Old Maridunians Association, the old boys of the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for Boys.
The guest speaker is Adrian “Harry” Wray (pictured above, marked in blue, in an old Carmarthen Quins rugby photo from 1979).
Here is Adrian’s pen picture in his own words:
I attended Queen Elizabeth Grammar School from 1970/71 to 1977/78. As you can see, I enjoyed it so much I stayed that extra year.
During this time, I had the pleasure of experiencing three headmasters.
I had the honour of captaining the First XV for the final two seasons 1976/77 and 1977/78. During our final season we achieved the title of Welsh Sevens Champions, and we also defeated Christ College Brecon on their home soil.
My academic education finished when leaving the Gram, whereupon I took up employment with a local decorating firm. Within four years I became self-employed and to this day I am still painting and decorating in and around Carmarthenshire.
I look forward to reminiscing with guests about my Gram years.
