Important News About the IOBA Reunion 2020

Important News About the IOBA Reunion 2020: It is with deep regret and disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of the 37th Annual Indefatigable Old Boys Association Reunion and Annual General Meeting, which was due to take place Friday 4th June through to Sunday 6th 2020. 

The challenging and unprecedented environment presented by COVID-19 and the recent government measures announced on Friday 20th March 2020 made this the only viable option.

This decision has not been taken lightly as a significant amount of work has been carried out by the Committee to date.  The situation which appears to be worsening on a daily basis and the implications of which are becoming more profound, has led us to conclude that the most prudent course of action is to cease any further planning to deliver this significant event. 

The Committee has agreed to return to Anglesey and the 37th Annual Indefatigable Old Boys Association will now take place on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th June 2021.  The proposed re-election of the following roles; Vice Chairman, Secretary and Merchandise will also be delayed and reopened next year.

The Committee would like to send their sincere apologies to all those who had already booked and paid and those planning to attend the reunion.

REFUNDS – If you have purchased Lunch & or Dinner tickets for the 2020 IOBA Reunion we are currently putting in place the process to claim a full refund or transfer your booking to 2021 reunion. Please be assured we will be in touch with regard to this so there is no need to contact us.

Deo adjuvante, we have agreed to return to Anglesey on Saturday 5th June 2021.

Take care and best wishes,
IOBA Committee.

Indefatigable Memorial Window

The Indefatigable Memorial Window now acrylic on canvas!

On behalf of all of us here, we would like to thank both Diane and Mike Rotherforth 60/61 for the time, inspiration & dedication to produce such a fine piece of art for us.

Both Diane & Mike have asked that the acrylic is auctioned at the 2020 IOBA Reunion (6th June), so to raise funds to be put to good use on behalf of the greater community we swerve to support. We trust it finds a new home where the memory will live on.

The acrylic painting’s dimensions are: approx 58cm (23″) x 40cm (16″).


Memorial Window above now as acrylic 2020

Indefatigable Memorial Window as in St Mary’s Church today.


The ‘Indefatigable Memorial Window’ is a more modern stained glass window in the North Wall of the Nave, which commemorates the work of the Indefatigable Nautical Training School which was located nearby from 1864 until its closure in 1995.  

St Mary’s Church, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll ;

The village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll is named after St Mary’s Church. The long form of this name, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, was first adopted in the 19th century as a promotional device. In English, the first and older element of the name means “The Church of St Mary at Pwllgwyngyll [the white hazel pool]”.  The second part translates as “near the rapid whirlpool, near St Tysilio’s red cave”, Llandysilio being the name of another local parish.
