Annual Dinner 2014

The 76th Annual ODA Dinner was held at Fulton House, Swansea University on Friday, 28th March 2014.

Professor Dudley Sinnet (1960-1967) was installed as President for the year 2014-2015 and his guest speaker was Sir Alan Thomas (1954-1961).

Approximately 200 Old Dy’vorians sat down to an excellent meal, after which they listened to Dudley (who bears a striking resemblence to the late Les Dawson) pay special tributes to mothers-in-law and quack doctors.  When the laughter subsided, Dudley moved on to pay earnest tribute to the School for the important role it has played in the lives of those priviledged to attend Dynevor.  These sentiments were echoed by Sir Alan in his speech in which he recalled memories from his own distinguished career as a business leader, computer engineer and advisor to the British Government.

Thanks are due to Dave Dickinson, Jim Waygood and Keith Evans for organising this successful event that yet again drew Old Dy’vorians from far and wide.
