50th Anniversary Reunion 2015 - 19 Sept 2015

To mark the Golden Jubilee of the first male undergraduates arriving at RHC (the "Pioneers"), there will be a reunion on Saturday, 19th September 2015.

The price will be £40 per person, which will include a buffet lunch in the Picture Gallery. A pay-for bar will also operate. Everybody who came up that year is encouraged to attend the reunion, and partners will be equally welcome.

To book for the reunion please click here

Please note, if you are holding back on booking, you may cancel for a partial refund if giving at least two weeks notice.   

Several Alumni have booked to stay overnight at "the Hub" (the College's B&B hostel).  At the time of writing there were 7 rooms still available. 

To book please contact www.conferences.rhul.ac.uk/accommodation or call 01784 276190.    If needing to cancel, The Hub requires at least 48 hours notice and will charge £30 administration fee.

Inevitably, much of our contact information is out of date owing to Pioneers retiring and either moving home or changing from a business to private email address. We are using our database and services of the College to gain maximum possible coverage. If you are in contact with other Pioneers who you know have moved or changed their contact information in the last 5 years, please supply us with a list of names and their current contact details (using the email below)

Welcome to The Pioneers

home-founders-studentsThe Pioneers.  

In 1965 male students were admitted for the first time as undergraduates to the Royal Holloway College and subsequently became known as "the Pioneers".

Thanks to Vianney Waters, an 'inaugural' meeting of 27 Pioneers took place at Kingswood on 24th June 2006.

As a follow-up to that reunion, this site is intended to act as a notice board for students who joined RHC as undergraduates in 1965 - 'The Pioneers'

We hope to provide you with information and a range of services to bring back memories and re-establish contact with old friends.
