Re: CH Closed. COVID19

It’s on the school Facebook and social media feeds, and was confirmed by a parent my other half knows.

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

Well I watched it yesterday, and loads of issues running round my head - again I emphasise that I was lucky and never suffered from him or others at CH so cannot even start to view it from the perspectives of those who suffered. But a couple of points: Well done (with a note of sarcasm) to whomever ...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

Haven’t watched it yet, and in two minds whether to or not. I did not experience anything untoward with him, but he did my confirmation in the school chapel.

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

I think they were all part of the Saracens Academy, who sponsored their place at St George’s, IIRC Harrow had a similar arrangement with Wasps until they moved to Coventry.

Re: Letter to Head Master

I don't think there is any secret that Scouts were led by JDS (as they always were) with Ian Torkington in attendance. I am pretty certain Goodall was there helping as well as Hywel Bennett (an older chap in his mid twenties, Old Blue and ex Scout, worked for the BBC in Cardiff), Burr and Webb on th...

Re: Letter to Head Master

Going back to Burr’s boat, the only time I ever was aware of Burr (I don’t think I actually met him) was him bringing The Empress of Blandings to moor next to Scout summer camp near Bosworth; it would have been July 84, end of my third form, and was memorable to me as Webb also turned up despite lea...

Re: RIP James Herbertson

Ash, there was a few nice photos on one of the facebook groups in tribute. Another too young, but I hope now at peace

Re: Dates of birth of convicted abusers

Husband committed very serious offences against one person Max, I recently met up with some of our contemporaries, and was frankly shocked by some comments on Husbands behaviour with girls on our year and above. He has been convicted for his actions against one girl, who I don’t believe is the same...

Re: Hammer blows to CH finances

I am just a little surprised that threat outlined in this thread - which could significantly undermine CH's ability to fulfil its mission - surely a concern to us all? - hasn't attracted any posts beyond comments on the pension system in general or people's own pensions. Tim I don't underestimate t...

Or, as is the reality of repealing the Default Retirment Age, you never fully retire but probably go part time until you are unable to continue

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Interesting phrase Tim, it is the first time I have ever heard anyone say Baker was ‘dismissed’. Obviously as pupils we were told he had left and I don’t remember any other info, or at least none that my Mum shared with me. Any more you can share as to why?
