Many thanks to Stuart Fawcett for organising the reunion for “Old” Coathamians that was held at Redcar Rugby Club Green Lane Redcar
from 6.30pm on Saturday 28th June 2003

On the links to the left, you will find one called OC Pics.... This holds pictures that people have sent to me instead of coming to the Reunion.

Also, the link 2003 Reunion takes you to the pictures of (surprise surprise) the 2003 reunion. Hope you enjoy them.

Thaks to Peter Chester for opening up the Sir William Turner Exhibition

He is always looking for new memorabilia so if your wife/mother/kids are trying to get you to part with some of that stuff, maybe you could send it to Peter to give it a good home instead.

Here are some of the people who came and their contact details. I will update this when I get the info from Stuart.
