A group of former NTU Urban Estate Surveying classmates returned to campus recently to celebrate 45 years since starting their university studies.

Friends Bryan Huckerby, Gerald Gora, John Bowen, Grahame Blondel, Ian Hughes, Phil White and Alastair and Penny Whall met in 1970 when they started the Urban Estates Surveying course at Trent Polytechnic.

They enjoyed a tour of campus, fascinated by the changes to Newton and Arkwright, and the facilities today’s students enjoy in the new Students’ Union building. Later they caught up with each other’s news over dinner.

Gerald said: "We were all impressed by the facilities at NTU and all the enthusiastic students. It’s great to get together, but also to remember those who are no longer with us – Rich Jenkins, Tony Chappell and our lecturer David Richmond."

Alumni Relations Officer, Clare Oswin, said: "It’s always fun to meet up with alumni to show them around the campus. I really enjoy hearing their stories and sharing their memories."
