President’s Message

Richard Blundell 1

A big hello to all OWs

We all find ourselves in a very strange situation with Life in governmental lockdown and an uncertain future when we emerge out the other side. I personally think that much will have altered as emergencies rapidly bring forth change and that we all must be ready to react and adapt to these changes.

The School closed down early and has swapped to digital learning for the boys and who knows where this might lead? The clubhouse also closed down and stopped all sport and one wonders how this will affect the WSC and associated amateur sporting activities.

All I can promise is that the WA will keep as close an eye as possible on all the membership with the main committee working as hard as ever behind the scenes to ensure we are ready for the return to normal lifestyles.

I know that individual members of clubs, societies, year groups and friends are keeping in personal contact with each other, which demonstrates the true ‘Whitgift Spirit’ so well and which must continue for all our well-being.

With very best wishes to all to stay safe and keep well.

Richard Blundell OW (1956-63)
