Going to the reunion in Weymouth in June, and thought I might put together a music CD of songs that were performed by Jacks Union at the time I was there. Any suggestions from those who might remember? Examples :
Baby Come Back, Equals
Words, Bee Gees
Nights in White Satin, Moody Blues

Hi Folks, Reunion Update: Plans going well, about 120 committed at present. The cut off date for attending is the 10th May 2010, so if your still thinking about it make it snappy.

Interesting reading the site. If anybody remembers me please get in touch. My sister, Carol and I often talk about our days at the school. Carol lives in Australia now and would love people to contact her. Has anybody heard anything of Kathy Valentine, Tim Gadd, Bill Hutchinson, Dilys Wells? I still see Margaret Day on a monthly basis. Margaret phoned me today to advise of the sad death of James Aubrey Tredidgo who I see has written on this blog in the early days.

Nick Welford - unfortunately, I can't attend the reunion - but some other Jacks Union numbers - To Love Somebody was a great favourite; if I remember rightly, Young Girl; Honky Tonk Woman - they certainly did a fair few Moody Blues and BeeGee numbers. Then their predecessors, Group 66 - do you remember Spanish Harlem? That was an instrumental number, so that their singer could go and smooch with his girlfriend. Those were the days, eh? Amazingly, I am now an OAP - doesn't seem right somehow! Best wishes Pam

Sad to read of the passing of James Tredidgo. I used to sit on the same dining table as him in Edinburgh House, and listen to his tales of filming Lord of the Flies. By a sheer coincidence, my wife also knew him as she was living in Up Park Camp Jamaica at the time and remembers when the production team arrived to choose a boy to play the lead part, which James got.

I was a pupil at WBS at the same time as James Tredidgo.I remember how chuffed the school was for him.I was sad to learn thro' this site of his passing and pass on my condolences to his friends and family.It made me think though..........how many other Windsor pupils male or female went on to fame and fortune or achieved celebrity status? Any famous sports stars,stage or screen idols, captains of commerce, industry or the services that you know of..?

At the risk of sounding repetitive I would like to hear from anyone living in Oz, NZ or any other part of Asia. Your country may not need you but the Windsor Society does. Let me take you down memory lane & put you in touch with friends from way back when.
Australasia has another reunion coming up in Sept 2011, will you and your friends be there? Email me fhewarnaby2@bigpond.com

Hi Diane Cribb. I remember you and Carol from Sandringham. I was only there two years - very memorable years. Being 4ft nothing I was known as "Titch". I remember Judy Diamond, Marlene Ross and Bronwem and Gwynydd Evans to name a few.

Hi All, Well Things are moving on swiftly, it is now 8 weeks until the reunion and just over 2 for the cut-off date. Before we know it we will be travelling to Weymouth, (can’t wait).
We have roughly 120 attendees at present, no movement from the last message really. But I’m sure there will be a few more. Can you all please check your friends lists and if they haven’t been invited or do not know of the event; can you please let them know.

Once again (sorry to be a pain) if you have committed and not paid, can you please do so at the earliest opportunity. If you’re still thinking about it then you only have just over two weeks left.
I will not turn people away from the door however you will still have to pay the full amount. And you will not be included in the Buffet. And as stated before any monies left over will go to `Help for Heroes’ (H4H).
I have been sourcing activities for us during the day time, its proving very difficult. I have got permission for us to use a Wii (games console). I have my fingers in a few more pies but, sourcing the items is difficult. To that end if there is some activity you have in mind, and it’s easy to source then please let me know. Of course we still have the facilities for music as well for those of you that are bringing some with you.

If you need to contact me for any reason or questions regarding the Re-union event, then please drop me a line. No-matter what the subject is, personal or not.
The hotel tells me that there are still some double and twin rooms left, all the singles have gone unfortunately. If you don’t intend to stay in the `Rembrandt’ there are plenty of other facilities if required. If you’re having problems with accommodation then let me know and I’ll try my best to help out.
So in conclusion `NOT LONG NOW!’
