Welcome to Mary Datchelor Old Girls Club


Welcome to the website of the Mary Datchelor Old Girls' Club. We all share a lively interest in Mary Datchelor Girls' School and want to keep in touch with one another. The Old Girls Club remains open despite the closure of the school in 1981, and small regional meetings are a popular new feature. For more information about  the club, read the About Us section.

The sections of the site are laid out above: Home, News etc. So click on Regions if you want to know about local meetings of Old Girls and Gallery if you want to see photos of Datchelor events. 

Our Chairman is Vaninne Parker.  She is known to most of us as one of Datchelor's many musicians. She is also now a Blue Badge Tourist Guide working mainly in London. 

The latest OG newsletter was published in August.  If you have moved recently make sure you contact us to let us know your new address.  If you send us your e-mail address you will receive all the forthcoming events letters we send out.                                                                                          


                   Chairman  Vaninne Parker
