Introduction :

Formed in 1932, the Old Ilminsterians Association continues to meet annually, opportuning the company of other Old Boys and acknowledging the entity which contributed so much to their formative years - Ilminster Grammar School.

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Association, and the four hundred and thirty year connection of the School with the Minster, the Association funded the design and fitting of the Stained Glass Window in St.Mary's Church in 2007.   Appreciation of the window has been expressed by the Rector in his Sep 07 Letter. This was done through the setting up the Old Ilminsterians Charitable Association - having achieved it's objectives, it will be closed in 2013.
