A memorable reunion in Falmouth

Last night's Camborne School of Mines Annual Dinner in Falmouth was special, being the 30th anniversary reunion of the class of 1980, only the 2nd year of mineral processing graduates.  Pictured above are Gavin Wonnacott, Phil Moore, Paul Lewis, me, Joe Bayah, Nick Wilshaw, Charlie Northfield, Paul Benjamin and Andy Mitchell.  Charlie Northfield made headline news 18 months ago, after his daring escape from imprisonment in Gambia.

It was good to catch up with Gavin Wonnacott, who I supervised at CSM for his PhD, completed in 1989.  Apart from his mathematical talents, he was also much involved with the CSM cricket team, being our resident, and very conscientious  umpire.

Old boys came from far and wide for the reunion, but none further than Paul Lewis (left) who had travelled all the way from Sydney.

It was a memorable evening, attended by over 250 past and present staff and students, and it was good to hear from the School's Director, Frances Wall, that the future of CSM is looking bright.

  1. A very good round up of the evening Barry, and I am pleased that you all enjoyed the evening so much. Hopefully we shall see you there again next year.
