The idea of a reunion was (we think) first suggested by Clive at the start of 2002. This came about because sad Brian over the years had made a list of all the people who had been employed by Avalon. The idea of a reunion was thought to be a good idea, so we set about the large task of contacting everyone on Brian's list.
By this time Avalon had spread to the north (Manchester) and since that had happened too many people had come and gone up there, so it was decided that only people who lived in the south would be invited.
Brian, Clive and Malc took on most of the work in contacting people and did a good job with only a few requiring a "medium" as a go between!
A hall in High Wycombe was hired, Brian & Steve would do the disco (with Steve supplying the equipment). Girlfriends and wives helped to decorate the hall. It was decided that caterers should supply the food, so a small charge was made to cover the costs of food and hall, with anything remaining going to a local charity. Over 70 people said that they would attend with 68 actually turning up on the night.
Along with a special Avalon Quiz the evening was a huge success and was over far too quickly.
