Dear friends,

In light of recent events we have decided to postpone The Third Thursday alumni event and relaunch it as a Founders Day to remember Mogg & Evan Hercules, our wonderful founders.  

We welcome your suggestions as to when you feel would be the best time of year to convene for such an occasion.  The school opened on 13/04/1978 (often the Easter holidays) and Dallington is always in session during the third week in September.  Please get in touch with suggestions for when you would like to return to your old stomping ground for a drink, bite to eat and a catch-up with friends and staff.  What shall we call our Founders Day?

Thank you to everyone for your incredibly thoughtful messages of condolence, following Mogg's departure to The Great Classroom in the Sky.  It was a delight to see so many familar faces at her funeral and wake and soon, we will share a video of the event. 

So, please let us have your thoughts on Founders Day and we look forward to an annual get-together to share memories and news, in memory of Mogg & Evan Hercules.

Why not contribute to Mogg's Memorial Fund

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Abi & all at Dallington
