Hi Charlie & Dave, it was great to hear from you after such a long time. By the way Charlie, the only thing I have in memory of our school days is the badge we used to have on our blazer and most of all I treasure a photograph of our 5 aside football team of Hillsborough when we used to play in the gymnasium. You are standing in the middle of us ( of course you were the captain and also the tallest from us all. I forgot the other names. By the way I sent this photograph with my last e-mail to the society. Also I remember Michael (Mitch) Ellis.he was a Leeds supporter!
I am still living in Malta. Maybe someday we might meet and talk about our school days, who knows. I will see how I can get your e-mail through the society. Maybe they can send it to me or they give you my e-mail. All you have to do is join...

Best regards

Hello Doug,

There doesn't appear to be anywhere else to place these types of announcements apart from the visitors book. This is from the Hereford Times newspaper.

IVY, Ross died peacefully at St Michael's Hospice on February 1, 2005, aged 65 years. Adored Husband, Father and Grandfather, loved by so many and will be missed by all who knew him. So sadly missed by Donna, Daniel, Catherine and Samantha. For finalized funeral arrangements please contact Bayley Brothers (Hereford) Ltd, where floral tributes or donations to St Michael's Hospice may be sent. Tel: 01432 272465

Ross, known to us then as Bert, was a member of Hillsborough House at Windsor School from 1954 to 1956. He was a house and school prefect and was a member of the School Cross Country team. After leaving Hamm he spent 12 Years in the RAF as a wireless mechanic. He then worked for Rank Xerox for 24 years, retiring in 1993. In September 2004 he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and spent his last 82 days in the hospice. It was so good for six of us exHillsboroughites to meet up with him again at the Newbury Reunion in 2003 and we've corresponded since. The funeral is on Friday 11 February.

Hi, my name is Liz Nixon and my sister is Sarah Nixon, we both attended Windsor girls school at around about 78 - 79. I was only there for my first year (as a day-girl) my sister spent longer, but I'm not sure how long. I remember a few names, Miss Brown - Headmistress, Miss Beth - History, Mr McGowan - languagues, Mr Martin - Pottery, Miss Scott - Drama/Dance. I think my class was 4WD but I'm not completely sure on that. I'm sure I could remember more with a bit of time. We were both in Sandringham, I'd love to hear more or see more photo's if poss. Hope to hear from you.
Regards,
Liz & Sarah Nixon (S78-79)
