Centenary event in Cyprus October 27th, 2017
The Old Pangbournian Society, Cyprus Branch is celebrating the Centenary year on Friday October 27th At the moment there are just two Old Pangbournians living here Louis Carrel ( Illawarra ’62-67) and Mike Jones ( Illawarra ’62-66) but there are rumours that there might be a few in Paphos and knowing O.P.s from our era there must be a few hiding in the Turkish North of Cyprus which has is no extradition agreement with the UK.Mike writes:“We are holding the event at the internationally-renowned Syrian Restaurant, Georgiou A’, Germasogeia, Limassol ( it’s close to Louis’s house) . Drinks beforehand are on the patio at his house and after the meal dancing under the stars ( weather permitting and if we are sober enough or still have the energy ) around the pool back at Chez Carrel.
Should any O.P.s happen to be in Cyprus on that date we would love to have them and their better halves come along. Further information from:

Clearly such lonely outposts of the O.P Society such as ours are forgotten in the grand scheme of things. Undeterred ,We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;For Louis to-day that drinks his wine with meShall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition;And O.Ps in England now a-bedShall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaksThat supped with us in Limassol..CheersMike”Michael & Geraldine JonesParamali, CyprusTel: +357 99443605Martina Franca, ItalyTel: +39 3476609130UKTel: +44 7511705296
