Re: What word would you have used?

When I went to the bank today there was a notice on the door saying: Temporary Closure. This branch will be closed today from 2.00pm to 2.20pm. The nearest branch is in Pwllheli. To me, temporary seems far too long for a 20 minute closure, what do you think? BTW, it would take more than 20 minutes ...

Beating Retreat - 1992

CH related, yet partially unrelated. I've been looking through my old VHS video collection and found my copy of the 1992 beating retreat. It was my Grecian year and David Elliot's final year as Bandmaster, so has particular poignancy. To add to its value it was also filmed by Terry Clark! Would anyo...

His sister worked at CH as well (Miss Robinson surprisingly enough :lol: ) - I think she may have taught needlework. She lived in BaB and was assistant house mistress or something like that. She could be quite fierce! She made me walk in a straight line one Saturday night :oops: :lol: I think the m...

There was definitely a teacher/pupil relationship going on at Hertford when I was there. Horsham - I also knew of one but I was sworn to secrecy - I knew both parties involved. I remember all those shenanigans too. We are talking here about activities that meant immediate expulsion when I was at CH...

I'm coming to this late, so forgive me if i suggest something that has already been mooted. My brother, for his 21st birthday present, wanted a couple of housey buttons silver plated and converted into cufflinks. I couldn't get it done in time, but was amazed that the school didn't already sell them...

Is this the reason that junior girls wear yellow socks and senior girls grey socks or black tights now? I`ve always wondered why, as there`s nothing different for the boys! I always heard that the girls from Hertford refused to wear yellow socks and a comprimise was found... I don't know if there i...
