Culham College Society

Latest News

I have just heard of the sad passing of David Slater (1961-64 this morning (10 November 2019). 

David has been ill for some time. Some of his close friends – Colin Talbot, Chris Jackman and myself – all part of the “Coffee Group 1961-64” and others met in December for the annual lunch meeting just outside Kidderminster – Dave had been arranging this for many years. 

Dave will remembered as an active member of the college football team but mostly as the singer in the College Group. He was a great fan of Buddy Holly and each year travelled to America for the anniversary of Buddy Holly's death meeting up with members of the band and friends. 

Dave also recorded several CD’s as well as performing in the local area at various fund raising functions.. 

I will forward any further information when available. David was a great character who will be very sorely missed by his friends and colleagues.

Many thanks and with great sadness
