Re: St Matthews Day Parade

Methinks you have misinterpreted my drift.
Disembarking from 20+ coaches is not going to be the easiest of exercises. Perhaps the police were keen that there should not be hundreds of "wellwishers" in addition clogging up the pavements,

Re: St Matthews Day Parade

Yes to the first question, but the pre-Cathedral march and the drop-off are both closely guarded at the request of the police. Sorry.

Re: St Matthews Day Parade

The "march" to the cathedral is indeed very brief (no more than 5 minutes) and is happening VERY early. In my opinion it would not be worth watching. The march from St Paul's will commence at approx. 11.45 and will last for 15 minutes or so. That is the opportunity that I would choose were I still a...

Even further sad news

It is with regret that I have to inform the board of the passing of Harry Spurrier, former Housemaster of Middleton B and Second Master, in Horsham at the end of July. He was 87. The funeral has taken place. It might be the family's wishes for a memorial service to take place at some later stage. I ...

Re: TV/ Old Blue

Yes I saw that too, Andrew. Went off to do a little research on him. Do you remember his predeliction for oriental art? Also I read somewhere that another contemporary, Steven Connor, is moving from his role as Profess0r of Modern Literature and Theory at Birkbeck where he has taught since 1979 to t...

Re: Beating retreat, end of term.

David's response and Frances's responses highlight all that is wrong with "tradition".
Both make salient points which need to be recognised. They defeat utterly Mid A 55's 1.08am offering.

Re: Beating retreat, end of term.

Such passion, Andy, over something so pointless ill becomes you. Traditionally Coleridge was a boys block until 1985. Traditionally young students/pupils had to wipe tables. Traditionally Grecians used to be the only pupils allowed to walk on the Grecians path until 2001. Times change, things change...

Isn't it strange how many things are misunderstood.

Re: Girls' cricket?

Some of you might like to know that a young 2nd Form girl, Inys Barnard-Masterson, made 20 not out yesterday, batting at no 6 in the Under 12A (boys) side to help her team defeat Cottesmore Prep School by 2 wickets in a thrilling match. It was an innings of great application and skill. She also has ...

Re: Cricket jumper

Sadly it is only the 1st XI who have crested jumpers.
The cost is prohibitive for youngsters to have them in my view. (Yes I was a CH parent once, too!!!!!)
