Old Blues who have worked at CH

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

Old Blues who have worked at CH

Post by Great Plum » Tue Sep 19, 2006 12:25 pm

How many Old Blues have worked at CH? I know of a number that have worked / are still working...

Howard Holdsworth (1966-73) (Staff 1992 - present)
Peter Newell (1992-99) (Security on and off from 2002 - present)
Tom Law (1992-99) (Theatre Manager 2006 -)
Debbie GP (1988-95??) (CHE 2000ish for a couple of years)
Charlie Farqueson-Roberts (1989-96?) (staff 2005 -)
Mr Whitehouse (unknown) - he taught CDT until the end of my 3rd form
Richard McDonald (unknown) - he taught French and was housemaster of Mid B until 1993
Adrian Bawtree - current Organist
Mr Kirby - he lived at CH pretty much all of his life didn't he?

Who have I missed out? Can anyone else fill in the gaps?

Be honest, you only wrote that lot so they wouldn't accuse you of "short Posts" :wink:

Plum - my dates are right. Staff dates were 99-02.

Charlie F-R and I were on the same year.

I can add:

Debbie Sellers (86-93) taught History around 2000-02
Jade Hamilton (89-96) worked in the Box Office around 2000

Wasn't John Shippen (Geography and Lamb B housemaster) an old Blue too?

Don't think so. Oddly enough - I dreamt about JDS last night. I dreamt I was driving him somewhere and he'd started off on one of his usual little stories. Bizarre. Less cheese before bed I think. Everytime I see a brie I can hear him bellow "don't circumcise the brie, boy"

I don't know, but he was my parents' best man!

No, I was just interested!!

And JDs wasn't an Old Blue - he went to Manchester Grammer - as he frequently told us!

A female OB 2's 67-74 or thereabouts was a doctor at Horsham for a while, I believe her husband was on the staff.

I cannot remember her name at the moment though I am sure it will come to me.

It didn't take long, her maiden name was Deirdre Pallister.

We had a couple of female OBs at Hertford of course as previously mentioned.

Joy Holmes and Katherine Betterton (her married name)

Talking of School Doctors "Tommy" Scott and Hoskins were both OBs I believe.

JDS would get very upset if you took the 'pointy bit' of the brie...
