From the Membership Secretary
"We have just taken delivery of a new batch of official OL ties as our previous supply had all been sold, consequently anyone wishing to have one of these distinctive items of clothing are now able to obtain one.  Unfortunately the cost has had to be increased to cover the supply cost and postage but even so, at £16.00 they are still good value.  To place your order just make your cheque out to the value of £16.00 payable to "Old Lennensians Association" and send this to:  Robin Carter, "The Linnets", 10 Sea Lane, Butterwick, BOSTON, Lincs.  PE22  0EY"  He will be happy to send one on to you."
