Thank you for visiting the website of Eastbourne Old Grammarians Association (EOGA).

Please follow the links below to go to the sections of the site which interest you. This new site has been launched in 2022 to replace and update the original site developed nearly 20 years ago and is still in development, particularly the Memories pages.

Walter Tillyard’s 100th Birthday

27 April 2022

Walter is 100 today, a great milestone; alles Gute zum Geburtstag! The occasion has been marked by a celebratory family lunch at The Hydro Hotel in Eastbourne, where son Rob (an Old Grammarian) is presenting Walter with an engraved decanter from EOGA. Pictures to follow hopefully, but a profile of Walter has today been published in the long-serving teachers section of the site.
