Alumni - where are you now?
As many will know, 2018 marks 70 years since the music service and LSSO were founded by Eric Pinkett. As part of the planned celebrations for our 70th year, an LSSO Reunion will be taking place on Saturday 24th March at Wigston College (formerly Guthlaxton College).
Dick Hallam has sent out an email regarding the general plan of the day but here is a reminder; of course we want the day to be fairly fluid and for people to have the chance to chat over old times with friends, but we felt it needed some structure (if only for logistics!). It is hoped that there will be a variety of photos, videos and general memorabilia for guests to look at.

10.30am -11.00am Performance by the current LSSO

We are now looking for people to commit to the day so that we can begin planning in earnest. As previously stated, the cost of the day will be £25 per person and £12.50 for children up to the age of 16. This will cover refreshments all day and lunch plus a contribution towards the venue hire. There are various ways you can pay- please see the attached document for these details.
If you could also click on the link below this will ask for various information pertaining to the day. Please feel free to share the information far and wide – the original survey has now been closed and everyone should fill in this one please.
We hope to see as many of you as possible at this event!
