After the Goodbye Tour
The FINAL Goodbye Tour of the Shoreditch College buildings and grounds took place on April 19, 2008. More than 80 people were there and appreciated the opportunity to have one last look around all the college buildings that the Security personnel had kindly opened up for the occasion.
Once again, our very grateful thanks to all the people who made this tour such a success.
The original Goodbye Tour was held on September 20, 2007. About 50-60 people attended, and enjoyed walking around the campus and checking out the Archives Centre, not to mention meeting for lunch and a beer in the various local pubs.
There were a few cameras about, so there should also be some great shots of people, the campus or buildings to share on this web site.
(note: there could possibly be copyright issues involved in publishing photographs of documents/photos from the archives, so unfortunately we cannot accept those).
We have several albums of photos from the tours for you to browse through. They will bring back a flood of memories. And talking of memories, don't forget to check out the Reminiscences page.
Of course, we would love to publish your photos from the Tour as well, so if you have any you would like to share, please send them to Jill and we will include them.
This event would never have happened without a few key people:
Particular thanks are due to Kate Lewis and Helen Betteridge
at the Archive Centre for arranging the display of a selection from the
archive collection (and for suggesting it in the first place!), to Janie
Grover in Brunel's Development & Relations Office for facilitating
the occasion and for organising the refreshments, to John Penfold for
acting as a tour guide, and also to Stuart Salt and others who boosted
our efforts to drum up support by phoning and emailing their own
contacts. <John Williams>
And I would like to thank my brother, John, for all the time and hard work he put into liaising with the above and emailing many, many ex-students and staff. Thanks John! <Jill>
After listening to so many reminiscences, stories, and memories of wonderful practical jokes, several people suggested it would be a great idea to record them while they are still remembered. So here we go - a page that will be dedicated to such things.
Contributions are welcome!!!
