Reunion Attracts Scilly Lovers

The Airways Hotel

A reunion of islanders and Scilly lovers attracted 38 people on Saturday.

Scillonian John Hicks, who arranged the get-together, organised them previously each November when he lived in Bristol.

This event is first held in Cornwall, near Newquay, at his new business, the Airways Hotel.

Current residents Sam and Jan Guy travelled from Scilly and were joined by former islanders and regular visitors, mainly from Cornwall and Devon. One woman travelled from South Wales to attend.

John says the session went well and attendees seemed to enjoy his slides featuring the Hicks family and older boatmen.

John says there’ll definitely be another session in 2014.

    It was a great evening with superb food and entertainment and a chance to meet old friends and make new ones. I can’t wait for the next one, thanks John and Rod for a wonderful weekend.

    Thanks for that. It was Ceri Davies (nee Hodgekiss) who came from Wales with Linda, a very good friend of hers. I think Ceri travelled the furthest….
