Re: Sheila and Peter Higgins - character references for Gary Dobbie

Very interesting news, Charles, especially given the 'religious' connection.

Do you know their 'times' at CH ? Their names don't do a 'Quasimodo' with me.

Re: RIP James Herbertson

Sad news indeed. He was obviously after my time.

I did read the news report on a local web-site, but there was no name or details printed.

Perhaps I have been a trifle remiss (nothing new there!), but I was not aware that the Grecians' Club had closed. Does that mean that the Grecian Houses have also closed? Can someone explain, please? :?:

Re: Anyone else who hated being at CH ?

I'd like to know if it was so patently obvious what was happening during your time at Horsham. I think this was covered in one of the other threads and the answer was "overall, it depended on how clued-in to the school gossip system/how popular you were". Speaking for myself, while Husband's affair...

Is there anyone who was at the trial who would be willing to PM me? I am interested in the character witness testimony.

I believe there were one or two who attended certain days of the trial. Unfortunately, I can't help more than that.

Bishop Peter Ball

The press are really catching up fast, even involving H.R.H. Prince Charles.

One example:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-48214957

If you Google the Bishops name, there are many many more recent references in the press.

Re: Poulton, Cairncross, Sillett

When is Phase 2 due to start ? If after the awaited sentencing of Dobbie, and the start and/or completion of the Martin trial, I would guess that they have a very good place to start, funds permitting, of course !
