At the FOSS (Friends of Sherborne School) Lunch, the day after the launch of www.sherborneconnect.org, John very rashly said he would eat his hat if we ever got 1,000 members.

That figure was reached on Thursday 4 January,just one month and three days after the launch and today John duly ate his hat!

Membership now stands at 1,185 OS, which represents 20% of all OS we are in contact with.
