Colin Williams - 02/05/2008
If people still read this site, this is just to apologise in advance for whatever happens [/happened] to Saints on Sunday when you play my adopted team, Sheffield United. There will be at least one Sheffield United supporter in the away end hoping that Saints escape the drop. Good luck.

Paul Hixon - 29/08/2007

Chris McRae - 10/12/02
Rob, Great to hear from you, I remember when I returned to Woolston after my spell in darkest Africa, after 4 years away, I was really nervous about joining the school and I was stood outside the classroom waiting to go in and you were sat in the front row, smiling away, you looked pleased to see me (?), and it really put me at ease. I don't expect you to remember! Really envy your lifestyle, California eh? Best wishes :0)

Hello Rob, good to hear from you again. We had two reunions and a Curry Night this year. Trev Miell in a moment of madness (I think he'd had a few beers!) volunteered to organize the next reunion in 2003. If you get sick of the surfin' beach bum lifestyle out there you can always swap with me and my desk here in Cambridge.

robert lee - 09/12/02
hi, i just found this site and couldnt believe all the old names and faces from the past.Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me especially Ray Agius!!! i am living in California since 1981 but come home at least once a year, and would love to know about any reunions coming up in 2003.hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Diane, thanks looking forward to receiving the R2 pix. As for the school roll call page (earlier query), I don't know why but not everyone was put on it by Woolston in 1973-I have a copy of the original. Eddie Edworthy and Chris McRae are 2 examples of that. I'm sure that there are more lurking around.

Diane Rice-Adams (Dicker) - 19/11/02
I won't be able to make the curry night unfortunately. Hope you all have a good time. If anything gets planned for next year please let me know. Mark, I will send my photos for R2 this week.

I was really interested to visit this site, and it was quite a surprise to hear my own voice giving out the notices so many years age. I will get in touch again.

Phil Weller - 05/11/02
I'm sure that I've got a dusty recording of a school concert somewhere, although, from memory, you really don't want to hear it! It's far better to remember it fondly than to experience the stark reality! I'll have a look, although I reckon Laurence will have something as well.

Mark McDonald - 05/11/02
If they exist perhaps Lawrence Wade has got some. I'll contact him and get back to you.

Paul - 04/11/02
No recordings of the school choir or orchestra have surfaced yet! I'm sure that some must exist - if any do turn up they will be posted on the audio downloads page...

Joy Drake (nee Knight) - - - 04/11/02
Sorry to be trespassing on your most excellent site (as a class of 78 myself), but I was wondering if anyone has any recordings of the school choir or orchestra?

Well done Mark/Mac/Hey You! & Paul! It was 'interesting' to see so many old faces (no pun intended) after 25 years. If anyone speaks to Jim West, tell him to check his e-mails once in a while! Unless of course he's ignoring me - I guess it is possible...
