The logo of a drum doesn't mean anything to me as a Hertford Old Girl! :(
It is a very good picture though - like the rounded edges!

OK, Angela; what logo would you suggest?

Perhaps a copy of one of the old prints of a Christ Hospital pupil? Male or female? what about copyright? Where does he get the image from?

I'm sure he would be happy to consider any suitable suggestion but do remember that it has to be something which is incontrovertibly Christs Hospital and not one of the "look-alikes". Having the badge in clear view would at least be an advantage, perhaps a prerequisite.

How about the badge itself?

As we're unofficial, we really can't use anything officially CH without permission.
Given that I took the photo I've used, I'm hoping that nobody would mind me using it for the logo.

If anyone does have any concerns, do let me know though as I don't want to breach any rules/sensitivies.

I'm open to suggestions, but am also very keen that the logo is fairly bright, clear and modern if possible...

There's also the argument that we started with a drum, and hence why I chose that to turn into the logo...

Although a Hertford Old Blue, I don't have a problem with a drum!
There is a very old photograph of Hertford, featuring the band (of little boys....) in front of the School Hall, with the drummers in front. So although this was before our time (and for 90-odd years there were no drummers - that I knew of, anyway! -in Hertford), I would argue that the drum showing the crest is iconic enough for the CH Forum.

So why not keep the drum on one side and use something Hertford orientated on the other ? Should keep everyone happy !!

That would be divisive, JR (and confusing.... One Forum, one logo?)

Me too. I was at Hertford & Horsham so it is relevant to me anyway.

Aw, poor Munch :(

I love the colours of the drum - and it does have the badge slap in the middle, which is relevant to us. Er, it is, isn't it? I'm having a senior moment (or, as my daughter so quaintly refers to such episodes - a brain fa*t).

Sorry Munch, I am with the majority on this one. I KNOW we did not have the band etc, but we did know about it and it does have the badge showing clearly.

What I like best about the photo is the gloves - I had never realised drummers would wear them!
