The Old Godhelmian Association (OGA) recently held a reunion to celebrate 90 years since the foundation of Godalming Grammar School.

It took place at Godalming College on October 9, followed by an evening get-together at The Inn on the Lake, Godalming.

Over 100 people attended the Old Goldhelmians Association reunion on October 9 2021.

This celebration had been postponed from last year because of the Covid pandemic and a Zoom reunion was substituted.

Over 100 people attended the event which included a tour of the main building and grounds, an exhibition of memorabilia, a three-course lunch and the opportunity to have both real and virtual (Zoom) meetings with school friends.

The OGA is in the process of writing a book with the working title, Godalming Grammar: A School on a Hill. A selection of articles for the first edition was displayed at the reunion.

The comedian, writer and Old Godhelmian, Ben Elton, will be producing a preface and the author, Louis de Bernières, has written a chapter about his memories of Godalming town.

The OGA is seeking a sponsor to help with the publication. Anyone who has any interesting information and photos about the school could send them to Annette Ettorre
