Re: Letter to the Head Master

I think but won't swear to it, the posts of Headmaster and Clerk have been combined in the last few years, which means there's one person less who could advise Simon Reid of the correct action to take now.

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Julian has. It absolutely right, it should be relatively easy for the school to do. I was amazed the other day, someone here mentioned that he had received the CHOBA Newsletter that day, I queried why I hadn’t with Gina Skillings, her email reply told me that not only had I received it, but I had op...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

I had Radio 4 on much of the day, there was only the single reference to him as far as I heard.

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

Why was he given the chance to talk to Husband in jail?

It was on the Radio 4 4pm news just after Ampleforth and Downside were mentioned,

Re: Letter to the Head Master

As far as I understood, and I hope to be corrected, that it could be included but hasn't yet been focussed on in the wat Ampleforth and Downside have. This morning there was a fleeting reference to Protestant schools, not just RC ones.

There was just a discussion on Radio4 regarding the Ampleforth/Downside report with John Humphrys expressing astonishment that there is no law of misprision.
I am sure that most of us who read this forum were thinking that it was time CH was investigated in the same way

Re: What was the food chain?

I think Angela did say that. Our age difference means that she remembers me as I was in the VI form when she joined 6s, but I don't remember her, neither as a clown nor as anything else.

Re: Will Dobbie be defrocked?

The priest colleague, who was working with me today, said that while defrocking may not exist in name now, the equivalent will apply to Dobbie. It will make no difference that he was a school chaplain rather than a parish priest. He will never again be allowed to act as a priest. My colleague was un...

Re: CHOBA 65+ years on reunion anyone?!

For some reason, I still clicked on your link, Julian/. I was amused to see that on the RHS the first person I needed to know was our own Great Plum - but going under his own name and with his own picture, not that Plum!

Re: CHOBA 65+ years on reunion anyone?!

There's an apology on the CHOBA site - must have been a bit of a shock to the youngest OBs! My brother and Freaky would qualify if it was timed from the year of starting at CH.

Re: Will Dobbie be defrocked?

I've got a priest working with me tomorrow, I'll ask him whether he knows the current policy in such cases.

Re: Charity Commission

Ware was one of the places, along with Hoddesdon and Hertford where the young children went from London, at one stage in our history. So perhaps it does have a tangential connection.
