Every year the Arthur Thompson trust sponsors a meal for a 30 year year reunion. This year it was the turn of the year of 1987. It was a memory lane evening, recognising people and learning what they were up to is always interesting. Prof Chapple welcomed the year and reminisced about what happened in the world in 1987 and then Dr Rock gave a talk about the joys of retirement. Following the speeches there was a group photograph and then the rest of the time was spent catching up on what had happened in the 30 years since qualifying.
