Westholme’s Alumni puttin’ on the Ritz!
Another memorable Old Westholmian gathering took place in the luxurious surroundings of the Ritz on Saturday. Twenty or so former pupils and staff, most now living in London, met to discuss all things Westholme over delicious tea and cakes. Some came with old friends, others came to make new, and the atmosphere was convivial. Stories were swapped of Sarah Turner, former Head Girl, entertaining the pupils with her Hoover impression (this one caused gales of laughter!) and memorable moments from Prizegivings gone by. Everyone had their special treasure box of purple memories, and over a cheeky cocktail in the bar after Afternoon Tea, they began to flow. It was a relaxed, fun and very refined way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and for several former pupils it was an ideal way to say farewell to their much loved Principal!
