Ten Tors 50 years Reunion

A successful reunion was held in the sixth form at Torpoint Community College to celebrate 50 years of the College taking part in the Ten Tors challenge.  The event was attended by the founder organiser, Dave England, who was a former science teacher at the school and one of his first walkers, Mike Briers. They were able to swap stories with today’s organiser June Porter and Tom Hicks, who took part in the Ten Tors challenge this year.

There was a large display of photographs, certificates and newspaper articles covering the 50 years. People attending were a range of past pupils who have taken part in the challenge over the years and helpers (checkers).  Some of those who enjoyed the event were members of the same family.
