Old Dovorians

Dover College’s former pupils – the Old Dovorians – now have a dedicated website where keeping in touch is made simple, so please take a look at their site:



Hong Kong Group:
This group is currently in the process of being established.  Full details will follow shortly.


Dover Group:

We meet on the last Saturday each month (except December) at the Brewer’s Fayre Restaurant, Premier Lodge, Marine Parade, Dover.

We normally have ex members of staff: Lionel and Nicole Gay, Peter Kershaw, Penny Matthews, Rosemary Rottenbury, Klara Stefan-Nelson, Jean Tuckwell and Pearl White. The Nickalls family (Guy and Kit, Helen and Michael Blackwood) come occasionally.

This year we have also had visits from Gerald Kitiyakara, Tony Bunting, Mike Lightbourne, Andrew Holmwood, Richard Peters – although not necessarily on one of these Saturdays.

We have welcomed Spencer Hogg from Lyme Regis and his son, George. Alan and Brenda Walker have returned to live in Dover and have now joined us.

Surrey/Sussex Group:

Over the past five years, because we seem to have gathered a great crowd of ODs in the Surrey/Sussex area, we have been meeting for a most enjoyable dinner at the Punchbowl at Oakwood Hill, near Ewhurst, Surrey. We have entertained nearly 20 people and always look forward to new members jo ining us.

If anyone would like further details, please contact Nigel Nicholson, telephone number 01483 273620, or e-mail

The Old Dovorian Lodge:

The Old Dovorian Lodge No. 5647, founded in 1937, meets at Freemasons Hall, Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AZ on the First Tuesdays of February, April, October and December, usually at 4.30pm. Visiting Masons from Lodges under the United Grand Lodge of England and associated disciplines are always welcome. We dine after meetings at various venues nearby.

The Lodge exists principally, but not exclusively, for men who are Old Dovorians, Staff of the College and Parents of existing or former pupils and we welcome enquiries from prospective candidates and joiners, especially from ODs.
