I have fixed the dates for the 2020 Pub Lunches. They will be at the Wollaton Pub, (formerly called the “Willoughby”), Lambourne Drive, Wollaton, NG8 1GR. (Tel: (0115) 928 8610).
The dates are always on a Thursday, from 12 noon to around 2.00 pm and for 2020 are:
19th March 4th June 1st October 26th November
The Wollaton Pub like some idea of the numbers attending, therefore, can I say I will count you ‘in’, unless I hear from you in the days prior to the luncheon.
5, Old Acres, Woodborough, Notts. NG14 6ES. Looking forward to seeing you all in 2020.
Brief History of the Mundella 39ers
Our Luncheon Club was started around the mid 1990’s by a group who attended the first of Alan Jennings’ Re-Unions and it transpired they all started Mundella in 1939 (hence our name) and almost immediately the school was evacuated to Stamford in Lincolnshire because the Education Authorities thought Nottingham would be bombed at the start of WWII. It wasn’t, so after six months they returned to Nottingham ….and then the City was bombed!
Bill and I joined the luncheon group in 1998/9 respectively as we retired. I took over as Organiser in 2007 from Don Nettleton, who’d run it for a number of years. I have some of the old records, and at one time there were thirty names of attendees! Last year our original remaining 39ers retired as they were in their 90th year. Naturally, our numbers have diminished, but I will try to keep it going if everyone is still happy to attend. Looking forward to meeting up with you in 2019.
