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.

Christmas Lunch 2015

P1000349_DxO_DxOP1000348_DxO_DxOP1000347_DxO_DxOP1000346_DxO_DxOThe Christmas Lunch was held on Wednesday 16 December 2015 in the Rivers Suite, Craiglockhart Campus. Thirty two members and partners attended the event and it was a good opportunity to catch up with old friends and colleagues over an enjoyable meal.

Many thanks to David and his staff from Catering Services and to Sandy Brown for organising the lunch.

Here you see Sandy Brown, stalwart arranger of xmas lunches and other activities with one the exhibits in the background. The other snap is a group of Enursa members just before they entered the cottage erected over the Andy Gallsworthy bedrock.

As you can see, although the trip was in the summer, the weather was a bit challenging. However, we suffered for the art, and the trip was memorable.
