Covid-19: Changes to Upcoming Events

With the easing of restrictions over the coming weeks and months, the Development Office and Old Blundellian Club are planning some events, listed below. It is with regret that Old Blundellian Day will not be taking place this year (2021), due to the ongoing pandemic.

In the meantime, we will continue to use the time and resources to call those in our community who may benefit from a friendly call. We are very grateful to those of you who support our events and would like to take the opportunity to reassure you that we will continue to offer a diverse program of events for our community in due course. Until the time when we can all come together at such an event, please continue to reach out, we are only at the end of a phone call or email.
