Have you moved house or changed your email address? If you have not received your copy of "The Bulletin" then maybe the Society does not have your current contact details. - click on the "OB Updates" button on the left for a formatted email form. Every mailing we get many returns as OBs are no longer at that address and this costs the Society a lot of money in wasted postage. Do you know other OBs that might not have updated their details? Please ask them to let us know their new contact details.
This site allows OBs to submit news about themselves for publication by clicking on the "Add News" link [top right].
Family members or OBs can submit an obituary notice for publication in our OB Remembered section. This can either be just a short notification or a longer piece giving more details of their life. A photo can also be added. Just click the "Remembered" link bottom right.
The OB Links page lets you publicise your email and social media links. Please remember that this is a public website.
All items for publication will be checked by the site administration before being published.
