Wigan Grammar School
2016 Dinner


Wigan Grammar School Old Boys Meet Again

Almost 140 former pupils of Wigan Grammar School attended a reunion dinner at Wigan Cricket Club in April 2016. The members of the association meet annually and enjoy an evening of reminiscences and nostalgia.  

As always this year's Old Boys' dinner was a memorable event with the evening's guest speaker being John S. Taylor, a pupil from 1957 - 1964, and later a member of staff from 1967 - 1969. 

The welcome was given by Tony Littler, followed by Reverend John Maiden delivering Grace,  The Loyal Toast was given by Deryk Martindale and the Vote of Thanks was by Malcolm Preston.

Marcus Moore caterers provided an excellent four course meal
