You might be lucky and find someone on here who's over there currently, who might be able to advise if you need it?

I remember being given, and receiving, "the bumps" on my birthday....great fun if done carefully, but when the person on the duvet hits the ceiling, then comes down heavily on one side of the duvet, breaking the grip of the person holding, and crashes into the iron beds in the dorm, it became somewh...

Joined one - paid for it - went three times - continued paying for it - now cancelled it........
bought a home boxing trainer instead - great fun, and cheaper over a year!

Hasn't made any difference though, and don't use it nearly often enough!

Fair enough - I guess that's enough to put ANYONE off....sure I'd have run back to house, refusing to ever touch another rugby ball - EVER!

Ignore paddy :roll: ..... he's just bitter about being forced to get cold and muddy a few times a week on a rugby field while at school.......!!! Having said that, I hated rugby for the first couple of years, until I got "forced" into a school match, and learnt the pleasure of being able to take som...

Your last comments sounds familiar - an Old Blue contact of mine offered his input to careers lectures (or whatever the equivalent is now) and has never heard anything back - other than a direct debit mandate and a request for charitable donation!

NEW:- Official CH Website revamped - Jan 05

CH Socks - no, not the bright yellow rat-repellers!

I was given a pair of socks for Christmas - normally not something I'd be shouting about - some friends spotted them in a London shop. Found the website that sells them - http://www.footloose-socks.com/schcolls.htm Christ's Hospital colours, £9.99 a pair - even matches the CH tie I was given a few ...
