Together Again!

The words went out on the streets that EPR 2011 will happen, same time, same place for the second consecutive year. Many who were clearly disappointed to have missed 2010`s event were destined to party with friends and colleagues at this event.

Due to the impetus, feedback and vision of EPR a group of us decided to form a committee, that would share the weight of commitment required to foster the growth of this event. The committee met on many occasions with rewarding results in formulating a structure for the way forward. The talent and enthusiasm of individuals on the committee was clear to see by their attitude, actions and results.

,The Pavilion, Moor Lane, Birmingham ticked every box regarding cost, space and security so we decided that all roads would lead to this venue for the second year for EPR 2011.



EPR Committee left to right: Wayne Howell, Ken Straun, Griff Griffith, Happy Davidson, Don Campbell,

Ossie Osbourne, Annette Erskine & Sherry Mcpherson


Yes ladies and gents this is were it starts

Although many guests pre-booked, many others turned up on the night with various reasons for not being able to make a commitment in advance. However, the committee did its best to cater for all in every way possible so that everyone would have a fulfilling night.


Evening All!

Tony & Joyce Sayers saying hello


Greetings old chaps!

Wayne Howell, Brian Phillips,.....& Wife........


Really? Yes!

Happy & Karen


Ladies and gents!

As always, once the fun and laughter starts discipline goes. I say again............


Barry Kelly entertaining the ladies


Beauty personified

This is surly what it is all about. Meeting up again, 10, 20, 30 or dare I say it, 40 years later and the radiance is still there for all to see.

Lloyd is in another world?  Like the sign says, Fatal attraction!!!!

Who said there isn’t heaven on earth?

Many thanks to Dr Vanley Burke for giving us his very valuable time in providing  numerous photos of Event 2010 & 2011. For decades he has photographed and document the history of black people as can be seen by following this link:

There were up to 100 people attended on the night. With feedback from questionnaires and a guest book at the event its clear to see that the evening was a success.
