Re­united at last

Lancashire Life - - SOCIETY -

It was a nos­tal­gic evening as the 1979 grad­u­ates from the Univer­sity of Manch­ester Med­i­cal School gath­ered at The Mid­land Ho­tel in Manch­ester for their 40 year re­union. Guests ar­rived from all over the world for this in­cred­i­ble re­union, fly­ing in from as far as Queens­land, Aus­tralia and Van­cou­ver, Canada.

While guests min­gled and rem­i­nisced over drinks, they also en­joyed en­ter­tain­ment from ma­gi­cian Carl Royle. Be­fore tuck­ing into a de­li­cious din­ner, guests were able to tour the Med­i­cal School with Pro­fes­sor Paul O’neill and see how its changed over the years. Those in at­ten­dance were given an ad­dress from Tony Blower, the past pres­i­dent of the Med­i­cal Stu­dents Representa­tive Coun­cil who rem­i­nisced the by­gone time of be­ing a stu­dent in Manch­ester dur­ing the 1970s.
