Hi there, Kim Taylor! Your sister, Jenny, was in my dorm at Windsor -in fact, there's a picture on my website which includes her. To be honest, I didn't know a lot of boys at that time, I was very shy, and had no brothers - obviously a drawback! I suppose Prof might have been Prof Sheard? Best wishes

Hi Heather Gallagher, glad to see you are going to Blackpool, definitely look forward to saying hi. Yes I remember the Thomas', Shirley was always in trouble wasn't she, down the fence, over the fence, in trouble with Miss Roberts! and matron, am I mistaken - weren't you her partner in crime!!! or was she leading you astray..... you will have to put me right at Blackpool. Bye for now.

Hey Semps! This web site is like a time tavel machine!!!How are you mate?Remember our English teacher? I forget her name, not the horney one in the mini skirts, the ... larger lady, married to a local I think. She set us up with some local German girls .... mine (Hidi) was really hot! ... yours was a bit of a dog as I recall :-)I've applied for the membership but no reply yet, better chase that up so I can get your email address.

Ian Lister (H69-71)

ps Just had a funny thought, remember when we did the electrostatic experiment, and 4 of us rubbed a blanket across McKeens back while he was asleep, then zapped his ears with about 20,000 volts?Have you still got Mitch's contact details?

Hi to all that may remember the day boys. Just a few more names to"bandy" about: the Gardner family, the Kitchens, Dave `Rhodie` Kinsey,the Hepburns, Dave Ormerod, Andy Summers, where are you all? I have had contact with John `Hammy` Hamlet, we were in Catterick together inthe Army. Does anyone know where on earth the following teachers are:Mr Martin(laguage), Geoffrey Oliver Moore, Mr Newton (Middlesboro fan!), and are any of them intending to be in Blackpool? So many names keep popping up that I remember but there are also some that wemay all take for granted that would be associated with anything WBS/WGS forever. Some more names just came to me: Marcus Ball, Stoney,Paul Boon,(all Sandringham), Mr Wheeler(AJ), Mr Heap, Pop Farrar wow - this is starting to get scary, I may have to lay down a while! Can anyone throw any light on the names? Bye for now, KGM.

5 Apr 2007

Bobby (Hoffman) I would still fly into Manchester as I have to sort out whether I can go yet. We have something on that W.E. and I am trying to rearrange it. I have been reading back some of the older messages and I see a couple from Greg Oxford, we need a few more of the Americans at the reunion.

Scott Innes - Thank You - you are quite right it was Sue West. She married Patch - David - if I remember rightly. They lived in Carlisle and I heard from them for awhile, but sadly lost touch. Yes he was great friends with Shane. Does anyone hear from the Barnes brothers - Shane and Neil?

Denise Fletcher - Thank You for the offer. Good to hear from you. I have something on that w.e. which I am trying to sort out at the moment, I am sure they can manage without me for once! I will let you know.

Loraine Holmes (McMillan) (H73-76)

Hi,To anyone who remembers me, and to Angie Dunmall and Debbie Wilkinson. Only found the website recently and certainly made the 'old' grey matter work. Other people I would like to hear off are; Chris Watts
(Titch), Chris Rees, Libby Daniels,Jane Stewart, Sandy Lamb (?) all in Sandringham,and Denise Bailey. I am still in contact with Lyndsey Noyes (Wilson).

6 Apr 2007

Since finding all the Windsor sites I have been lucky enough to find nearly all my old mates and made a few new ones. But I am still looking for Bob McCormick H 73-76. Last saw him in 1977/78 after he'd joined the Army, the Paras i think. Does anyone know where he has landed ;-) TIA

Sean Cockroft (H74-76)

8 Apr 2007

I have had my confirmation from the Norbreck Castle, albeit after a slight bit of confusion over the number of nights I had requested. I have been looking into going by train from the south of England, as I will save me worrying about the drive after a weekend of imbibing a few beers or two! Unfortunately National Rail http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/ can only offer details upto 12 weeks in advance. So can't find out until next week what the offers may be. Wonder if anybody else will be going via train on the friday back sunday from south of England? might be able to meet up on the train before
we even get to Blackpool.

Malcolm Brunsdon (E67-69)

Derek Webster (M73-78) here. I would just like to ask if you could forward my email address to Carol McLaren nee Gurr for me. I just read through hours worth of visitors entries and discovered her entry in Sep 2006 asking the whereabouts of my brother and myself.

Derek Webster (M73-78)

Hallo everyone. this is my first attempt at emailing this site. My sister Kim and i were in Hills Hse for a couple of years. My memory of that time is supposed to be better according to my sister I think she just wants to forget she was ever on report!!!. I shared a dorm with Debbie Johnson,and a girl who was rather keen on Liverpool football club. I used to travel to school with Yvone Lumby and Rosemary Door and Penny Smith on the same train from Berlin. I remember Denise getting a tree trunk in her shoes from matron one year! and not many sweets. Does anyone remember the production "Dracular spectacular"?? My sister and i hope to be in Blackpool this year so if anyone remembers us it would be nice. If not it will be great just sharing and remembering. Regards

Lesley Nixon (H76-78)

18 Apr 2007

I would like to get a message to Debbie Hughes as I am no longer a member of Friends Reunited and unable to reply to her email. Debbie if you are reading this - yes I still live in Salisbury and yes I would love to meet but don't have any contact details to get in touch. If anyone can help I would be pleased to hear from them. Chris O'Toole - no I am not going to reunion as still have hang-over from last one. I have just got off the phone from Denise Fletcher and she says you are going - have fun and remember I won't be there to share a bottle of wine with you so don't drink it all yourself too fast ha ha. Just a thought - ask Denise to share a glass of sherry with you... she will tell you the significance of that at the reunion. Regards

Carol Gibson (H73-77)

18 Apr 2007

Hello Carol, Thanks for the memory of the Sherry, but as you know, I no longer drink....And the memory of the Sherry is still with me, as a reminder to why! But it was fun, while we were both sharing it...lolI think you should reconsider coming to the reunion, as lots of people want to see you... Carol Ambridge, Jane Keith, Christ Ostthey are coming and we are all travelling together, so why don't you join us? It will be lots of fun, and we can hear about things that I am sure even you have forgotten about.... Time for you to get over your hangover from the last one, and make a fresh hangover, I am sure Chris O'toole will agree... And besides you can share a bottle of wine or three or four with everyone! So come on friend, lets get our tickets and book the hotel... And have a laugh...To everyone else, hello and see you in Blackpool!!!!

Denise Meyers (H72-78)

19 Apr 2007

Hi to all that may remember me. Just found the web site,so many names i did not think i would hear again. Never stopped thinking about the people,or the place even after all these years.

Paul Simmers (winnie) (M76-79)

Hi Celia. Caught up with Bobby and my dad over Easter and they both say a big Hallo! Really looking forward toBlackpool, only staying for one night, as it is not too far away..Will try and get there for lunch time Sat. What about you? keep in touch, see you soon!!

Heather Gallagher (E75-78)

19 Apr 2007

Message for Kingiy, saw your note on the site and brought back memories of the old days. great to see you are still alive and well, fond memories of you admiring my silky skills and lightning pace on the football pitch, and also thrashing you in athletics. Will be going to the reunion with Mike Ore and we look forward to you getting the round in as we are going to take five pounds each that our wifes have given us, we are determined to spend it all and get very merry indeed. Good to see you are well mate, drop me a line sometime, i will tell Mike as well as he has'nt got any friends. See you in Blackpool!

Paul McDermott (M77-79)

19 Apr 2007

Hello Carol Gibson - I trawled through old paper work last night to get an e-mail address you gave me and wrote to you only to have it bounce back! As a result I am going to have to do the old head of house thing and shout about you not coming to the reunion! Denise has already said she is going and I need someone to go with. Please reconsider and I will make sure you are a good girl while there! Since posting a few messages I have been into the attic to get my old Ambassador magazines and photos outto get the old brain working. I knew the JOHNSTON twins rang a bell and there you were in the attic! I remember you in the big dorm with about 10 beds in, I might have beeen head of house then. When I initially went to Hamm I shared a dorm with Janice Tracey, other girls from Hillsborough were Matti Matthews, Kathy Baxter,Debbie Goulden and may more. Other names were Karen Smith, Yvonne Watts, Jayne Rowlatt, Sue West, Sue Carlisle, Suzanne Gower,Lyn Harries etc, I have a photo here of Debbie Goulden and David Whiston and ANGIE DUNMAll - I am sure it is you, wheren't you friendly with Debbie? Jayne Rowlatt and I were at Laarbruch together. Boys I remember were Ian Hyland, John Henderson, Chris Bowyer, John Redfearn, Keith Shipton (sister Kerry), Neil Carrick, Shane and Neil Barnes, Bobby Hoffman (hello again Bobby) Greg Oxford (sister Beth I believe)AND MANY MORE! I have photos here and I cannot put names to all of them. I need many more 1970's people at the reunion to have a look at them and tell who they are.

Loraine McMillan (Lorry) (H73-76)

Hello Carol Martin, So sorry that you can not make it to the reunion, I know like Lorraine you have other things planned.(Maybe another time you will be able to get over your old hangover lol).

Message to Mick Hughes ragrding the school band in the mid/late 70's. the band with Creg Oxford on drums was called Amulett and SDam Weller played bass guitar. I have a photgraph of them, there was a nother guy who played guitar along with Martin Brindley but can't remember his name.

Terry Leahy (C70-75)

22 Apr 2007

Hello Bobby, do let me know if you can make the reunion that would be great. I have made arrangements so I can come I just haven't booked anything. My daughter (age 8) keeps saying "mummy are you on that german school website again!" e-mail if you can. Did you know that Greg Oxford also lives in Florida? According to my last records that is where you are know. He has a dental practice in St Augustine. You could travel together! Speak to you soon, Lorry.

Loraine McMillan (H73-76)

22 Apr 2007

Denise Fletcher - may give you a ring if my records are up to date. Can come to the reunion but haven't booked anything yet. Lorry. Nige Hoar - your name keeps ringing bells with me but I don't know why!! You were obviously in Laarbruch before me as there are names on your list I don't recognise, however names I do recognise but can't put faces to are Steve Legg, Dickie Bird, Rose Passfield, Dave Halsall and Heinz Winterbottom. If you are going to the reunion we will have to liase and put some names and faces together.

Loraine McMillan (H73-76)

22 Apr 2007

Lorry, hi again. I was at Laarbruch from '71 to'74 so probably did know you. Where did you live? Looks like I wont be going to the reunion as Ive just purchased a property overseas and can barely afford beans on toast at the moment, never mind a weekend away. Pity. I'll bet we know quite a few people if we put our heads together. Got a memory like an elephant, me.................

Nige Hoar (S71-74)

23 Apr 2007

Hi Michelle, I remember Sue, we even went out with each other for about a couple of weeks, please send my regards.

23 Apr 2007

does anyone remember st. james house in this year 1973 to 1976

Alison Long (StJ73-76)

23 Apr 2007

To Ian Lister (H69-71),from Greeny.No. It's not me. Or at least I think it is not the me who you thought maybe I am. Though I am Greeny, it is not the Greeny you thought. In simple English I think you remember my Brother who also resided on the second floor. By some strange mysterious quirk of nature there were a number of Greenies in Hillsborough-one at least was my brother. I never made it to the second floor but as I said in the first message to you, information had a habit of percolating down so I remember your name, as well as Semple and others. My brother was a prefect and was possible in the year above you where as I was in the third year in 1972 when my brother was a 5th year. You were probably also a 5th year. If you were a 4th you would remember another Greenie-Sean. Were Ponting, Morrison, Bennet, or Bates known to you, I shared a dorm with them before I left in '72'? What else did I hear exactly?I remember standing in the queue out side of “The Hayden Jones Bank” awaiting my turn for some pocket money when the double doors were pushed open to reveal the Local/national Polizie requiring the attention of some one in charge due to the fact some residents of Hillsborough had been apprehended whilst out of school grounds with a loaded machine gun. Or was it a double barrelled shot gun which they just happened to be out of school grounds with. (Before I exaggerate too much-if my memory serves me well I remember the reality was an air rifle). It was not everyday that the Armed Polizie stood by the tuck cabinet in the evening. Well there they were two green jacketed Polizie dudes strapped up with their regulation belts and side arms escorting some one in who should ordinarily not have been spatzehering about after dark with a loaded rifle. Of course, it was not one of the young dudes from the ground floor. It was some one from the 4th year, I think. It takes quiet some imagination to work out that it was only an air rifle. It made the mind boggle to think that some one on the landing above had been keeping a loaded rifle somewhere. May be it was just on temporary loan form the MT block. There is loads I remember from those fun packed years. Do you remember Rocket and Whitehead? They were the best runners I ever saw. To see them on the athletics track was a joy to behold. What year were you in when you joined in 69? I was a first year in 69. Good to see your message and I am sure there are other stories from the past that we both remember.

M. J. Greenwood (H69-72)

24 Apr 2007

Will be happy to meet up for a drink and a chat with anyone who will be arriving at the Norbreck Castle hotel on the Friday. Both my sister Gwen and I will be arriving about 3pm and staying until the Sunday morning. We're really looking forward to it and hope to meet at least one person we know. We will try to pace ourselves as I don't want to be named in dispatches along with the others in the last reunion write up! haha.

Pat Innes (nee aris) (B74-76)

remember Pat - you are nobody unless people talk about you....

24 Apr 2007

Trying to locate old students who were at Windsor Boys, Marlborough House between 1960 and 1964. Ron Lancaster, Malcolm Sinton, Bernard Readwin - any feedback welcome.

Peter Leppard (M60-64)

24 Apr 2007

Hello Michelle Jennings, still waiting for you to give me your sister Sue's email address... Glad you have surfaced again, and trust that you are going to the reunion in Blackpool, if so will see you there!

???????? (H72-78) - but who are you???

25 Apr 2007

Hello to everyone who remembers me, not long to the reunion now, really looking forward to this one. A quick message to Pat Innes, I joined Windsor Girls two years after you and was in Balmoral. I will be arriving at the Norbreck Castle Hotel on the Friday through to Sunday morning so I would be glad to join you for a drink, we may be from different years but I'm sure we can find something to chat about. Can't wait to see everyone again.

Chris Duxbury (B78 - 80)

25 Apr 2007

Hi Michelle, I remember Sue. Give her my best

Tony Reilly (M73-76)

Lynn Waller emailed to announce the sad news of the death of her dear friend Kim Witney (Nunn) a member and ex student of Windsor Girls school 1969 - 71. Our thoughts go out to her friends and family in their bereavement.

25 Apr 2007

Hi to Chris Duxbury. Slight error in my last post. I was actually in Edinburgh House, whoops - near enough, the same building! Gwen and I will look out for you and we can have a drink and a blether. Looking forward to it. Will you be coming on your own? Gwen actually would've been at Windsor at round about the same time as you but we were posted back to the UK in December 76 so she had to stay on at Rhein Middle School in Laarbruch for a term instead.

Pat Innes (nee aris) (E74-76)

28 Apr 2007

29 Apr 2007

Hi Terry Leahy,Thanks very much for that information, much appreciated. Are you in touch with any of those guys? Were you Head Prefect Caernarvon House? I was one of the Dorm 2 lot. I would really like to see the photograph you mention.

Mick Hughes (C74-77)

29 Apr 2007

Chris O'Toole. You contacted me through Friends Reunited but I'm not a paid up member of that anymore. I can't go to the reunion because I have something else planned for that day. Shame - it would have been good to meet up with you Debbie and Karen again.I tried to email Debbie but I'm not sure I've got her current address.
