Re: Cricket coach ?

I hate doing this, Andy, but time has blurred your memory. On the preceding Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Cambridge University had played away at Aldershot v Combined Services. They came to stay at C.H. at the behest of new Head Master, David Newsome - he had known Majid and others previously from h...

Re: Cricket coach ?

The CH Bob Clarke inherited the nickname "Nobby" from his predecessor at Northants. He was a fine coach, a fearsome competitor and a highly dedicated groundsman. I have many, many fond memories of him and a whole raft of anecdotes about him. I believe he also played left-half for West Brom. Howard'...

Northamptonshire, August 1953. Opening the bowling for Northants with Frank...

Re: Music Lessons - not a pupil

I would recommend the Samuel Applebaum Stringbuilder books series for starting, but very young they would need to be explained by an adult with a modicum of music knowledge. I am trying (OK Freaky, we all know!) to learn to play the guitar left by my late son who played in a Manchester group; any s...

Re: Does anyone know the school latin motto?

Welcome to the forum Kittypuss.

Kerren Simmonds sadly passed away a few years ago and is missed both on this forum and in the CH Community generally.

Re: Best wishes

May I add my wish that everybody has a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Let's hope that there is a satisfactory resolution to the evils of the past, discussed elsewhere on this forum, for all the victims during 2019 and that nothing similar ever occurs again.

Re: Old Blue County cricketers

He just was not given sufficient opportunities by Sussex, Andy, so his decision is a wise one, I feel. I'm inclined to agree. Archer, Jordan, Garton and Weiss all appear to be ahead of him in the Sussex pecking order it seems to me as a Kent supporter looking in. I believe Gloucestershire have lost...

I can't quite believe that the Conservative and UNIONIST Party has set in train the break-up of the UK. Cameron & May may go down together as the worst ever PMs. Brexit is a narrowly English obsession.
Not quite. Wales also voted 'LEAVE.'

Re: Wendy Fryer

How many other CH masters married infirmary nurses? I can only think of one 'almost' example: Peter Brotherton called his marriage off at the last minute. An indecently late minute, in the view of many. Tom Keeley married dietician Belinda. JE Denison (?spelling) married Nurse Mc Morran (again ? sp...
