Re: Kerren Simmonds is in hospital

Just seen the announcement about Kerren's funeral on Facebook in case any of you are interested. The post says: "The Funeral Service for Kerren Simmonds (2s 57-66) will be held on 21 June at 10:45 at St Peter and St Paul in Rustington. All are very welcome." I can't say I knew Kerren at all other th...

Old Blue stars in Madonna's new film

Just saw an review ( http://bit.ly/o3a5Bc ) of Madonna's latest film W.E about the life of Mrs Simpson. Madonna directs James D'arcy (La A 84-91) who plays Edward.

Sounds like a shocker of a film but the more due to the direction and script rather than the actor.....

Re: Re:

Not penguin bashing per se... But a gang of CH people led by Richard "Rigger" Bates went to Southwater to take on a gang of kids from there... They went armed with hockey sticks, etc.. The Southwater gang came armed with a shotgun.... This was in the mid-80's sometime and may just be a CH myth... T...

Re: Expelled

As I think I and others have mentioned elsewhere there was the great drug bust of 1988 when the Thorn A Grecians were decimated along with selected others from other houses for dope smoking, or in the great tradition of Bill Clinton for not inhaling. I remember a lot of unhappy people around who fel...

Re: Fashions in Music at CH

To be fair to her, she may not remember either as the article was from 1986.

Fuzzbox reforming though, not something I'd have thought was top of many people's lists.

Re: Fashions in Music at CH

Strippergrams? Yes, I vaguely remember that sort of thing happening at MM... I'm not sure about one actually visiting me at my desk at the Maker Mansions, although it may have happened. It's all a bit of a haze now... ah, the beauty of the t'internet means these things never die. I recently and co-...

Re: Posts concerning Reading Matter - 11 March

Hi Zoe

Congrats on getting the book out. I don't think the comments was hugely critical, 'compelling read' far outweighs the other comments.

Can't believe it's been 21 years since Craig and I left, hope all has been well with you since then.
