Library Book Appeal – Update

From Phil Harding

“Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Library Appeal. Our target of buying 200 books has already been exceeded, and the School is currently looking to add to the list so that more books can be purchased. All books will have a commemorative sticker inserted in them to acknowledge the sponsor.

The books will make a significant difference to the Library and will be ordered over the summer holiday so that they arrive in good time for the start of the new School Year in September.  The Appeal is still running for Old Harveians to contribute if they wish to.”

Further update  from Phil 27 July – ‘I estimate we will end up being able to buy 350-400 books, which is a massive amount for the library’.

There are some spaces left on the OHA Annual Outing.
The trip is on Saturday 15th of August. Cost £45 which includes a coach trip with Crosskeys Coaches to The Olympic Park where we pick up a Blue Badge Guide from City and Village Tours who will take us around the park taking in the iconic venues. We then rejoin the coach at The Westfield Shopping centre for a ride through Epping Forest and up the Lee Valley where we board a wide beamed barge for a 90 minute cruise during which a cream team will be served at tables and chairs.

If there is sufficient interest some can enjoy a cable car ride over The Thames on the way back which will be extra but the cost is not known until I am aware of numbers.

This is all for the benefit of the OHA and therefore the School. John has been arranging highly successful Outings for many years. Please support this if you can. For more info contact John Oliver
