Event Review – South West Drinks

A small (but perfectly formed!) group of OMs from the South West region gathered in the Mall pub in Bristol the evening of 13th February.

SW affiliated club secretary Robert Drewett (C3/BH 1972-77) welcomed OMs, some of whom had travelled some distance; Tony Hill (CO 1949-53), for example had travelled up from Somerset and Gloucester based Air Marshal Sir Ian MacFadyen KCVO CB OBE (C2 1955-60) was in Bristol that afternoon for a meeting so became an honorary member of the SW group for the evening! It was good to welcome some OMs who had not attended an OM event before.

The pub location was chosen near the university so the only disappointment from the evening was the lack of young OMs who are studying in Bristol. Maybe next time!
