Students celebrate 20 years since college days

Members of the class of 1996-99 were welcomed back to Reaseheath last weekend for their 20th anniversary reunion of starting at college.

Twenty-six former students met on campus to catch up on old times and see what’s changed since their time as students.

The reunion was coordinated by 1996-99 agricultural mechanics student Adrian Dunn through generating interest via Facebook and involved students from a range of subject areas including agriculture, animal management, engineering, equine and floristry. One group of former engineering students made the journey all the way from Ireland specially for the weekend!

The group went on a guided tour of the campus, visiting old haunts and many new facilities around the campus followed by a proper catch up over a buffet and a brew in the historic Reaseheath Old Hall.

A big thank you to agricultural engineering instructor (and former student) Graeme Smith and our student ambassador Tia Castle for being such excellent tour guides on the day, the group had a great time and plans are already in the pipeline for their next meet up.

If you’re a former and student or member of staff and would be interested in being involved in reunion tours and events at the college, please do get in touch with Katie Burt (Alumni Officer), 01270 613 219.
