The annual reunion lunch for former Soham Grammar School pupils is to enjoy a talk by an ex commando.

Mike Barningham, ex-Royal Marine Commando and now structural engineer, is perhaps the Grammarians’ regular attender travelling the furthest. Mike came to the school in 1960.

He lives in Mexico and works in Nigeria and will be giving the talk at this year’s reunion lunch on Saturday October 1 at 12.30 for 1.30pm.

It is in Beechurst Hall, the old SGS Assembly Hall, at Soham Village College.

Soham Grammar School’s catchment area includes Soham and the surrounding villages but also Ely, Cambridge and Newmarket.

Partners, relatives or supporting friends who enable old boys to attend may enjoy the company and are welcome.

All bookings must be received by September 19.
