Do you have any
memories concerning the death of King George VI and the events that
followed? Do you remember how David (Softy)
Harding, then Head Boy, toured the classrooms on the morning of 6th
February 1952, informing everyone of the King’s death? I am sure the Newsletter Editor will be
pleased to hear all your memories and consider them for inclusion the Spring
You would see from the complete AGM
Minutes that our committee is further depleted. It is very sad that no one will come forward
to lend a hand, yet you all enjoy the benefits of membership. We are very grateful for all the help and
inspiration given to us by Richard Hancock who did not stand for re-election to
the committee having served his three-year term. Lionel Harris resigned as Chairman after
five years – and to think he only came on board for a year in the first place
when his predecessor was taken ill and twisted Lionel’s arm to carry on
temporarily! We owe Lionel grateful
thanks for stepping into the breach.
There were no new nominations for the Committee. This remains a very serious situation and we
question how much longer the Association can continue without some new blood on
the committee. The Spring Newsletter
will contain a list of little jobs that we need help with – please
give it your very serious consideration
Proceedings of the Annual General Meeting follow
