It is with great and personal sadness that I have to announce the Passing away of Robert (Bob) Stocks on 28 February 2009. Below is a message his wife Pat sent through to a friend.

"Bob passed away suddenly Saturday evening NZ time. I do not have a password to get on to the hobbit site, would you please be kind enough to let all those other wonderful hobbits know the news. Bob loved the fun time he spent hobbitting and the great time we had with you guys in 2003."

I got to know Bob through the many ex school sites that exist and met up with him and his wife Pat in 2003 when they came over to England. He had a good sense of humour and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

I'm amazed to find out that "Pud" Watson's family lived at the same address as mine at Am Hokenholz 39 ! Now that's an amazing coindidence cocidering our mutual family surnames ! Go figure !! I know of "Pud" Watson when I was a pupil but for all my 3 yrs at WBS Geoff Hern was my Maths Teacher not "Pud" Watson ! My youngest bro was also a pupil at WBS during the same years & he got nicknamed "Pud" either at Hamm or just after we left & still is known so by his chums . Me - I was "Bugs" - I like to think it was after "Buggsy" Segal , but I rather think it was after Bugs Bunny !! I was also amazed to see Claire Watson's pics . I've travelled for work for 30+ yrs & in the last 20+ in Eastern Europe & Russia !!! I've also been past Hamm several times, laterly in Aug 2008 . WBS ain't the same ! "Peg-Leg" has done a bunk !! I came across Heather Culter as well via a school chum ( my next school after WBS who joined the RN & knew her when she was RN ) .A small world . I'm sometimes in touch with Mike Borthwick also a Marboroughite from the same era. Fond regards to all !

Hello. In April I will be taking part in this year's London Marathon- I must be mad!! I am doing this in memory of my Mum ,Margaret Kitchen who sadly passed away 2 years ago from Alzheimer's disease. She was followed very quickly by my Dad, Peter Kitchen who had looked after her for over 16 years. You may remember him as housemaster of Marlborough house from 1962 -1981- a long time by anyone's standards! I felt I had to do something to try and raise the profile of this terrible illness not only on the sufferer, but also the carer and their families. I will be one of the slow ones at the back, but I am only really bothered about raising as much as I can for the Alzheimers Society. I have already raised nearly £1700 and have had some donations from ex members of staff, students in Marlborough and friends of mine from school. If you feel able to help in any way I would be very grateful- a big thankyou to those of you who have already made generous donations. You can visit my web site on www.justgiving.com/virginiastreet Thankyou in anticipation. I know Mum and Dad would be very grateful for any donations. Thanks again .

I have been off line for some ime and have just read through messages posted for January to March and am still in shock re. Ted Wicks and Neil Carrick's passing away. I had no idea, I met with Neil at the first reunion at Newbury Park. We reminded each other of the great side we played in together at Windsor and how we both thought each other would end up as professional footballers. He was a really nice bloke and a great footballer. I think Ted was a few years younger than myself although we were both in Marlborough. Never the less I would like to send my belated condolences to both Ted and Neils families.

On a more cheerful note it looks like the 70's reunion is going ahead in York. I wondered if anybody knows whether more of my year will be attending, such as Ian Mynott, keith Shipton, Al Copley or Paddy Hawkins (Junior). Have you invited any teachers such as Mr Hearn?

Gez Gilmer, were you thinking of going? Best Wishes to all.

Sorry Guys and Girls, only just found this site :( Have got to spend some time checking thro' names and dates etc. When 'we' the Neeves first arrived at WBS their was 4 of us Tony, Peter, David, (me) and little brother Micheal. I had a fantastic time at WBS and many many good times. Trying to remember names but yes we are all getting older.

Hi anyone that remembers me! I've just stumbled over this site thanks to Keith Moralee, and I'm actually quite sad really. I've seen the pictures of the two schools (WBS & WGS) from 2006. It's all overgrown, smashed up and unused. As I said, quite sad really. I notice there's a reunion in June. I may re-arrange a few things and pop over to see who's there. My best regards to all who read this.Cheers! Steve
