National Delegate, Father Sean Murray SDB, and Blaisdon President, Tony Brady, invite all the Past Pupils of Blaisdon and all the former staff and friends of Blaisdon to become regular readers of this our Local Association Website. In this way you can become aware of all the special activities that are organised at Blaisdon and elsewhere and to which you are always invited.
The National Federation has been doing wonderful work for the poor in Liberia by raising in excess of £ 10,000 s each year for the past three years. You will be able, if you wish, to help us reach our contribution to these very worthwhile Salesian Mission projects.
We look forward to meeting you at some of our, usually twice yearly, meetings at Blaisdon.
Tony Brady, new Blaisdon President, since 30 August 2009, endorses, wholeheartedly, the above Invitation to all who become readers of this Website, especially to all new members of the Blaisdon Association.
