The 2022 Annual Dinner which was originally scheduled for Saturday 15th January was held on Saturday 21st May.
Our Guest Speaker was the Watford Football Club legend Luther Blissett. Luther played 584 first class matches, 415 of those for Watford, scoring an amazing 148 goals for the Hornets. Now retired from playing football, Luther is a regular matchday host in the Sir Elton John Suite at the Club. He has been a television pundit for Channel 4, founded his own British Touring Cars racing team alongside John Barnes and Les Ferdinand, has recently been awarded the Freedom of The Borough of Watford and is also a serving Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire. Seeing Luther in action in his matchday hosting role, shows that he is a very engaging, charismatic and highly entertaining speaker and so it proved to be.
The evening was considered a great success and well worth the wait.
We regret to report the death of Sir Robert Johnson, QC (WBGS 40-51).
A full obituary was published in The Times newspaper and a copy of this may be read here courtesy of his family.
