What about ex-Brownies? Can we go to the camp? If we bring our own toadstools?

Oh well you have chosen the same date as the London to Brighton Bike Ride again, so I will not be coming!

Also the end of the week that Universities finish so quite a lot of travelling that week for recent leavers.

Absolutely... one of the things about OB's day is that there has been a thought by many uni students that the dates were often put on days to prevent them from coming along - I think this year's one is late enough (it was fine for most last year too)

And yes, I did mean Scouty...

The conspiracy-theories reach new bounds!!

No chance of that sort of thing - it's just too difficult to get a day which fits in to the school's already hugely busy schedule, with all the leave weekends, half-terms, parents days, etc. etc. and to also try to make sure it's in the summer.

Really pleased we've managed to fit it in again this year and ensure it happens - should be another fun day.

I hope to get there this year as MY student finishes in the middle of the week for some reason.

We got our tickets today - tea for all and clay pidgeon shooting for oldest boy. Both boys are curious to see a real live boarding school (our trip to Hertford in April didn't really count).

The last time I went to Horsham was in the 6th form for ?Founders Day? - we had wine to drink at lunch, which was in itself so exciting that I've totally forgotten the rest of it.

Other half went to sSeaford College (fairly nearby?) and remembers being quite uncomplimentary about the boys from CH. I just hope he doesn't start reminiscing on the day ....

That's OK, I can be fairly uncomplimentary about Seaford College too... ;)

Well, I'm going but I don't think many of my year and below (as ever) know much about it so time to start an event on Facebook methinks!
