Old Paradians in London
New member Chris Purcell and Melbourne visitor Brian Buckley joined some London Old Paradians at the Magpie pub near Liverpool Street Station to celebrate the fact that the furthest-flung branch of Old Paradians had survived the pandemic.
As always there was lots of fun swapping ideas and experiences from different professions and industries and a desire to keep gathering.
Several other new members are planning to attend future events and visitors from Melbourne are always welcome to get in touch.
Old Paradians living in London have begun holding regular meetings to swap tales and ideas about their old days at Parade and their new lives in the UK. Click here for more info
