New Book Available- Halstead Grammar School History and Memories  

click here for details



Spare2

We have produced a booklet about Halstead Grammar School (see above) and are still looking for any memories, humorous or otherwise, from people who went there and would be happy to have them published - whether it is first-hand or something you were told by your mum, grandma, sister or whoever. Any reminiscences from the 50s, 60s ot 70s would be fantastic, but earlier anecdotes are also more than welcome. Were you in any school teams or plays, which teachers did you like best and why, what did you think of the uniform, misdemeanours and of course school dinners! Our web pages show photos that we already have, but if you have others, especially snapshots, that you would be happy to share, we would love to have copies. Please email  janiej@waitrose.com or for further details and an informal chat please call 01440 709822 0r 07802 483191.  Many thanks.

AGM/Social Meeting on Friday 13th May 2022

For details see the Newsletter below


AUTUMN LUNCH

Provisional Date - 2nd October 2022

Social Evening & AGM

If, like me, your days and weeks rush by quicker than school holidays used to, you will be amazed to nd that May is nearly upon us. That means the social evening/AGM on Friday 13th May 2022 is only a couple of weeks away.

The event is being held at the Ramsey Academy, Colne Road, Halstead. Doors open at 6:30 pm and we will start at 7pm with the AGM, which we promise to deal with as quickly as possible, so that we can then have fun. This year, a quiz, will be hosted by our wonderful honorary member, Daphne, and

assisted by Andee, our joint Chair. Refreshments of cake, biscuits and hot drinks will be served during the evening and there will be a rae. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone.

Please come along and bring your friends/non-members, for whom the ticket price is £5. (Your own

ticket is covered in your Annual Subscription - see below). Quiz teams will be made up of 6 players, and for the majority who attend alone or with one or two friends, we will put the teams together on the

night.

If you haven't already done so, please send the form, attached to this Newsletter, to Pauline Page, or let one of the committee know you will be attending and want to pay your subscription on the night.

Subscriptions

If you haven't paid already, your Annual Subscription of £5 is now due. As mentioned above, you can pay it at the AGM if you prefer but if you are unable to attend, please can you send your cheque to Pauline Page, our Treasurer, using the attached form.

If you prefer to pay by Paypal, please contact me (Jane Jones, janiej@waitrose.com) and I will let you have my details.

Sad News

We are sorry to announce that Pauline Day has died. Pauline was a huge supporter of the Association

and member of the Committee for many years until she stood down in 2017. Our condolences have been sent to Paulines family but, at the time of writing, we are not aware of the funeral arrangements.

Depending on the familys wishes, we will send owers or a charity donation.
