Reunion event for HND Hotel & Catering Management 1973-76

Charles Stewart, a graduate of Edinburgh Napier University, is looking to organise a reunion for all alumni who studied HND Hotel & Catering Management between 1973 to 1976. He would also like to extend the invitation to any former staff who taught on the course.

We are looking to get an idea of numbers at the moment but if you are interested in attending, please let Lynsey Cochrane from the Alumni team via alumni@napier.ac.uk.


A little whisky was tasted

Fittingly, it was an educational as well as enjoyable event, held in the Upper Apex cafe at Merchiston. Star of the show, undoubtedly, was Richard Honour, former head of Publishing and Printing. His appearances at events have been sparser of late, due to the difficulty of negotiating his wheelchair. But the venue was completely accessible, and he was able to meet friends and colleagues again.

Rory coped admirably with questions from the audience,  blending knowledge with wit and humour. There were requests for a follow up, so please, if you’d like to pitch in with ideas or information, just contact one of us.

Former member – Frederick Frayling- Kelly

It is with sadness that we announce the death of Frederick Frayling- Kelly who was a lecturer in the Department of Music. Frederick passed away on 22 December last year. He will be remembered for developing the talent of many young musicians and will be sadly missed.
