PARC – Pinderfields Action Reunion Committee
The idea for a patient reunion started after the sad passing away of Geoff Conlan, a much-loved ward orderly. A small group of ex-patients and staff organised the first Reunion Dinner, held at the Millhouse, Stanley Ferry, Wakefield in 2000.
The committee was named PARC and they held another three successful Reunion Dinners at Stanley Ferry in 2002, 2004 and 2006. In the early years we had many sponsors who collectively helped us to subsidise the bi-annual event. For the past eight years the committee members have been David & Linda Tempest, Ann Ikoku, Wayne Cunningham and Derek & Jeannie Curson.
The 5th Reunion Dinner in 2009 took place at the Normanton Golf Club because the function room at Stanley Ferry ceased to exist. PARC was delighted to have sole sponsor Stewarts Law on board for the 5th Reunion Dinner. The event was a great success, but unfortunately the venue was too small – so PARC looked for a new venue for the 2011 event. With the backing of our sponsors Stewarts Law we had the 6th Reunion Dinner at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. The event was truly a fantastic evening, with everyone enjoying the venue, the great food, entertainment and of course reuniting with old friends.
We are happy to announce that the 7th Reunion Dinner is to be held again at the Royal Armouries Leeds, on 20th July 2013 thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Stewarts Law.
