Graham Tall gave a lecture on Memories of WGS

Where have all our schooldays gone, long time past now
Where did all our schooldays go, fifty years ago?
Where have all our schooldays gone, lost in memories every one
What did we really learn, What did we really learn?
(VICAR OF BRAY)
At Wellingborough Grammar School
When Harold Wrenn presided
With cane in hand, not iron rod
Our learning was decided
Divinity he also taught
Of Sodom and Gomm-orah
He ran the school with firm support
And thatís all thanks to Nora!
Paul Needle entertained us on the organ and created 
several splendid songs, the first verse of one of which 
is given above - Sadly no picture taken!
Full List of Songs     

A Paper weight was created as a memento  (38)

Whilst Spike would not have officially approved, he would have been highly amused by the mime of three gents at the Gents, with glasses and fags in hand.

Sunday 12.00pm:

A number of us met up at the OGs and said Au Revoir.  Only Mr. Pope thought to come properly dressed - but sadly he was bereft of blazer, cap and his shirt was neither white nor grey.  Even worse, Nora would have stopped him before he entered the school and torn a strip off him - whatever schoolboys can get away with respect to their ties in the 21st century - that was NOT possible in 1956.

Sorry Tufty, there are NO goods for this.  The only question is whether Nora will deal with it on the spot or send you to the Head for corporeal punishment.
