The 1st MALIPHANT Jamboree
Date: August 1st 2009
Venue: The Beaufort Arms, Stoke Gifford
Arranger: Bruce Maliphant [##48059]
What a day ….. full of emotions and happiness.
I’m sure we’ll all have specific memories of the day, mine is just a warm feeling that it went so well – many thanks to those of you who could make it – despite the best efforts of the weather to put us off!
Over the next few weeks I’ll try and collect/collate/publish any stories you wish to send to me – as well as any pictures of course!
The first pictures can now be found on the 2009 Jamboree Pictures page on this site – click and enjoy !
I think it’s fair to say there will be another Jamboree – it’s only a question of when 🙂

Some factlets and stories from the 2009 Jamboree …..
- 28 people had said they hoped to attend
- Some couldn’t, others came unexpectedly, so …
- 32 people were there on the day (see list below)
- The oldest person attending was Gordon Maliphant [##47073] aged 83
- The youngest person there was Sophie Charlesworth [##49022-50002] aged 5
- The youngest Maliphant there was Master Henry James Maliphant [##50001] aged 8 (Sophie’s cousin)
- The person who travelled the furthest was Evelyn Morris [##47034-48001] who travelled by train from Upminster, Essex
- The longest car journey was by Ken Maliphant [##48047] and his family from Beckenham, Kent …. and it’d still have been the longest even by the direct route (no further comment …)
- Bruce’s favourite quote/chat of the day (with Sophie Charlsworth):
Bruce: How old are you then ?
Bruce: When were you born ?
Bruce: Which day in July ?
Sophie: Monday !!!
……………. which is actually true, she was born on a Monday 🙂
The “event of the day” was no doubt 1st cousins John [##48046] and Ken meeting for the first time – I’m sure that will lead to some further meetings for John and his ‘new’ relatives too!
