The 2017 Annual Dinner of the Old Dy’vorians’ Association took place at Fulton House, University of Swansea, on Friday 5th May 2017. This year’s event was the 79th anniversary of the ODA Dinner and saw John Rees, Year of ’64, take over from Ted Nield as the new President.
John’s guest speaker at the Dinner was his brother, Christopher “Ciff” Rees, another Old Dy’vorian from the Year of ’66.
John is a recently retired GP who practised in Fforestfach, while Christopher has been a Senior Partner at the London law firms of Bird & Bird, Herbert Smith and Taylor Wessing. A leading international legal expert in the field of Information Technology, Christopher is a noted authority on data protection issues.
200 Dy’vorians attended the Dinner this year and, as is always the case on such occasions, all present had a very pleasant and sociable evening. Special thanks and congratulations must again go to David Dickinson, who was responsible for organising such a successful Dy’vorian gathering!
