Smalley Boys School Reunion

Diminishing membership of the existing Reunion through death and age related restrictions has caused the Committee of the Smalley Boys School Reunion to reconsider its position. More than 25 years ago the Reunion was formed for former pupils of the Smalley Richardson Boys School and has been successful over the years with the initial membership totalling over 100.

It was open to all the boys who attended the school prior to July 1958. After this point in time the school became the Richardson Junior Mixed School. A reunion has been held every year since formation at various venues, but in the more recent years it has been held with the help and kind consideration of Heanor Miners Welfare who provided us with an excellent venue room complete with bar. They also provided the excellent buffet which was paid for by the Reunion. Members were invited to bring their wives, partners, girlfriends, etc., and the cost was (and still is) £5 per head. The Reunion is a non-profit making enterprise, and a raffle is organised during the evening with members donating prizes and this helps to pay for future events. Unless something is done, the Reunion in its current form will soon cease to exist, and as a vital organisation within the village of Smalley, which has all too few social outlets, the current Committee feel that some effort should be made to see if it can continue long into the future.

At the last Annual General Meeting, held on Friday 8th November, members agreed that in the initial instance membership should be offered to everyone who attended the Richardson Endowed School up to 1970, an increase of twelve years. Depending upon response the date might be extended still further in the future. We therefore invite people who attended Smalley Richardson School between July 1958 and December 1970 to get in touch with us if they are interested in attending our future Reunions. If sufficient numbers are forthcoming we shall retitle the Reunion, Smalley Richardson School Reunion.

The School are also behind this move. CEO Matthew Crawford is keen for the Reunion to continue, stating it to be a “vital school organisation”.
