Medical Graduates of 1992
1992 – 20 year Reunion
The 20 year reunion of the 1992 Medical Graduates took place on Saturday 6th October 2012 at Forest of Arden Hotel, Meriden, Warwickshire organised by Dr Victoria Spencer with help from Dr Emma Greig, Dr Nicola Whittaker (née Tilley) and Dr Cathryn Woodward (née Airey).
Ten years later the Class of 1992 returned to the Forest of Arden for their 20 year reunion. From the four corners of the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand, 74 of the year with 35 spouses met up on a glorious sunny Saturday in October. As well as some of the BSc-ers who dropped down a year to qualify in 1993, we were joined by Steve ‘Geordie’ Robinson, now an optician. Sadly Lizo Mzimba didn’t respond to our requests to join us but obviously being a BBC reporter for 50 years of James Bond was too much of a lure for him!
Despite the fact that we are all in our 40s, a few more grey hairs (or less) for the men and once we remembered names, the 20 years vanished!
Several of us arrived to enjoy the hotel’s facilities before heading for a pre-dinner drinks reception. After a group photo we sat down for dinner accompanied by medley of music from our Uni days and a slide show of pictures from our five years together at Medical School. We discoed till 1am then sang the Welsh National Anthem as a tribute to Dr Debs Hiley (née Davies) who could not make the event due to illness. Several of the year lasted in the bar till 4.30am and made it down to breakfast.
Everyone had such a fantastic time that a 25-year reunion will be on the cards but perhaps with name badges!
