Didn't Rev John Robson go on to be the Queen's chaplain?
Maybe there is some connection somewhere?

Didn't he arrive at CH To join Rev. Pullen around 1963 ?

Re: Who Knew What?

The front page of The Daily Mail, (yes I do read it), makes interesting reading on the subject of child abuse. Maybe I should've said horrific rather than interesting !!

Re: Politics

It's all getting very interesting, politics wise. The Labour Party are now in a real tizz over the semitic issue. Hardly like a left wing policy. Could be terminal for Comrade Corbyn. As for the Tories, it looks like the May Bott and Boris The Spider are on the verge of all out war. The Lib Dems ? W...

Re: Address to the Governing Council help please

Hi Robert, can I just say how absolutely in awe I am of your courage. Thank you for what you are doing, I know you will be giving strength to others. I think the main point I would like raised is that it is not enough, anywhere near enough, to focus their response on the perpetrators. They also nee...

From today's CHOBA News:
THOSE OLD BLUES WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US

...Wendy Fryer CH Infirmary Nurse 52-53
I saw that just a few minutes ago.

I'm just guessing, but would she have been the wife of 'Bogey' Fryer, HM of Coleridge B ?

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

I can't honestly see Ms. Marshall making any comment to a mere member of the public, but it might be worth a try if anyone wants to give it a go.

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

This question is really one for Richardb, though my view is that the DPP will wait until the police have finished and passed over their 'ongoing enquires', then decide on the way forward.

Re: Who Knew What?

I have somewhat hazy memories of the Husband incident. I recall that I was chatting to a few folks whilst running/walking school drills one weekend morning down by the old gym near the train station. The story was that he had "eloped" with Grecian or deputy Grecian. I remember that here was rumour ...

Re: Roger Martin

I don't know for sure, but I feel pretty sure that Howard will have spoken to the relevant authorities.

Having said that, you should certainly contact them with your information RusticationPhil. Every bit of information helps.

Re: When You Left CH, Did You Cease to Have Access to the Musical Instrument You'd Learned How to Play?

She has reached her target, I believe. From her Go Fund Me page it looks like she’s about £250 short. For a final nudge just think of the sublime horn solo in Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony. I discovered that work in my house record library at CH. At about the same time I was into Sergeant Pepper - onl...

Re: Roger Martin

I have absolutely no doubt that the relevant department of the Sussex Police by now are fully aware of the current situation and the feelings that have been aroused. In view of their ongoing investigations for more possibe charges, you can bet they monitor comments being made on this site for backgr...

Re: Congratulations to this year's Grecians and their new Headmaster

All this is way over my aged brain.

I seem to dimly remember getting a LOL in my stand up comedy exam.
