Letter from the Editor
Dear Members of the City & Guilds College Association
We may be becoming a 'Virtual College' within the framework of the new Faculties but our traditions, that bind the Guilds
students and alumni together, are stronger than ever. Boanerges is celebrating his centenary this year, with
many past generations of Bo ' drivers and their friends attending a major event on 22 June, at the Heritage Motor Centre,
Gaydon. Don't forget - all are welcome.
Another of David Hattersley's famous 'Walks with a Past President' has been arranged for Saturday 21 September, called
'Crime and Punishment'. Why not make a day of it, as it will be the annual 'Open House 'weekend in London. We are also putting
in place a Business Seminar at the House of Lords, hosted by Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, on Friday 15 November. This will be
an evening dinner and we aim to have an excellent speaker.
By the way, if you would like to make sure that you are sent details of all our events, just contact the CGCA office and ask
to be put on the 'London Events Mailing List'.
Chris Lumb, Chairman of the Old Centralians Trust Fund, has been inviting senior College staff to meet the Trust Board
and CGCA General Committee members over an informal buffet lunch. One was held in January at 170 Queen's Gate and was a great
success. Chris reminded the College staff about the various ways in which the Trust supported student life and hoped that
they would join the Association, making stronger bonds with both alumni and student members. Note that the Trust would
welcome more contributions from members, as indicated in their Annual Report in this issue.
Please keep writing to me with your views on the Association and any ideas you have for future events; also on how the
Association should respond to the forthcoming creation of a new Imperial College Association, which is so dear to the
