Alumni and development were invited recently to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the class of 1959 at York Place.

The class set their final Pharmacy exam at the old pharmacy offices of York Place over 60 years ago. Conveniently now a hotel and restaurant the group resided for the weekend to celebrate their reunion. Adam Gillies, Alumni Engagement Officer met with the class and their partners who all still keep in touch every year and many of whom met their wives and husbands while studying at Heriot-Watt College. Before dinner the group shared old photographs, stories and memories of one another from their time in Edinburgh.

Adam said: "It was a delight to be invited to such a special event and hear from the professor who taught the class 60 years ago. From the first time, I met the group I always knew they’d be friends for life.”
