Dear Old Marians and Friends,
WREATH LAYING CEREMONY in WESTMINSTER ABBEY on FRIDAY 3rd JULY 2020
On behalf of the Headmaster and Queen Mary’s Club I would like to invite you to join us this year at our annual Wreath Laying Ceremony in Westminster Abbey on Friday 3rd July.
The timetable for the day is as follows:
- 12.15 hrs onwards: For those who wish to meet for a drink before the ceremony, please gather at the Westminster Arms in Storey’s Gate, opposite the Abbey, next to Westminster Central Hall.
- 13.00 hrs: Assemble outside the main West Door of the Abbey. The school party of Year 7 boys, with Prefects and Staff, joins us at this point. We then move to the Queen Elizabeth Chapel for the short service, including the Wreath Laying.
- 13.30 hrs: Lunch at the Cellarium in Westminster Abbey. To reserve a place for lunch and the Jewel Tower (cost £25 pp) please book online at http://qmclub.org/events/wreath-laying-2020/ paying through the PayPal link by credit/debit card; or, if you prefer to book by post, please send your cheque, made payable to Queen Mary’s Club, to the School address below. If you have any special dietary requirements please let Jonathan Turton or me know when you book your place (see email addresses below). Any extras, such as wine or other drinks, will have to be paid for on the day by those who order them.
- 15.30 hrs: Tour of the Houses of Parliament (to be confirmed)
Alumni who wish to travel on the minibus from Walsall to London for the day (no charge) should contact me, at school on 01922 720696 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those of you who live in or near London may wish to join us only for the Wreath Laying Ceremony itself, or the lunch and/or the visit, and you will of course be most welcome but please let me know and book your place.
If there are any problems over anything to do with these arrangements, please ring me or leave a message with the Headmaster’s Personal Assistant, Judy McCoy, at school on 01922 720696.
I do hope you can join us for all or part of what promises to be a very pleasant and interesting day.
Alumni & Development Officer.
