Roedean Crew 2014. The first girls school to enter and we came a very respectable 16th of 25 yachts, considering some of us hardly sail or have never raced. Massive amounts of fun. If you like adventure, meeting new people and working hard as a team, this is definitely for you next year. Caroline will be putting together the 2015 crew of up to 10 ORs for the 3-4 October 2015.
If you are interested, please email Caroline directly. OR Caroline Bowen (1991-1998) sailed competitively whilst at School and through university, gaining her full blue and captaincy from Oxford.
We were delighted at the success of our first Old Roedeanians London Lunch in September. This is the first Reunion lunch to be held in London for many years and we are delighted to be re-introducing this very popular event. More details about the day are available here. The event was such a success we have already booked the next one for 11 September 2015.
We are pleased to announce our new social media team. Harriet Kember (No. 1, 2006-2010) is heading the team along with Kathryn Nicholson (No. 3, 1995-2001) and Bryony Allan (No. 1, 1988-1993). Together they will be in touch with all ORs via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. email them here
Old Roedeanians filmed for BBC TV series 'The Great British Countryside'
Julia Bradbury and a camera crew from the BBC TV Series 'The Great British Countryside' spent the day filming at Roedean, where they also interviewed two Old Roedeanians.
The episode they were filming focused on the soft chalk of the Sussex South Downs and Julia discovered the tunnel through the chalk leading from Roedean to the beach below.
She also met two ‘old girls’, Pam Dodsworth (Underwood, No.1, 1934-37) and Renee Wilkin (Garrett, No.4, 1939-42), who remembered the tunnel from their schooldays in the 1930s, and recalled its use as an air raid shelter.
You can view the clip filmed at Roedean here.
The episode about the South Downs will be shown on BBC1 on Thursday 1st March.
