County Alumni

County Celebrates 50 years

Over 130 County alumni and ex-staff reunited to mark The County College's 50th Anniversary between 5-7th July 2019. 

The weekend's events included campus tours, trips to the Wind Turbine for an 'eco-talk', drinks receptions (including a joint one with Fylde and Furness Colleges who were also celebrating their 50th anniversaries that weekend), live music and a buffet dinner on the Saturday evening. 

The event was a great opportunity for alumni to return to campus, meet up with 'old' friends and reminisce. Feedback from the event has been extremely positive and many attendees are now 'back in touch and sharing their photos and stories on the County College Alumni Facebook Group. 


Feedback from the event:

'Thank you to you and your colleagues for organising the memorable 50th weekend celebrations. My friend and I really enjoyed ourselves despite not meeting anyone we knew.' - SJ Condy

'...after all the planning and effort that went into providing such a superb weekend, I feel it more appropriate that you, your staff and JCR are the recipients of thanks from myself and all the other alumni and guests that attended the celebrations. So a big thank you to you all!' - John Brown
