For bohemians everywhere

Grapevine

ST PAUL’S SCHOOL. St Paul’s School in Horntye Road has raised £120 for Macmillan Cancer Relief. Parents and children were involved in the Harvest Festival event, and each child donated one item of food.
GORDON BUSBRIDGE. This local furniture store celebrated 95 years in business by two days of special previews on Thursday and Friday of this week of their extensive range of furniture. The store was established in 1911.
CLAIRVOYANCE. Jayne Sands is hoping to raise money for BBC’s Children in Need appeal. She is providing an evening of clairvoyance at Horntye Park on Friday 17 November at 7pm. Entrance fee is a minimum of £3.
SCHOOL DISCO. Christchurch School held two school discos yesterday, one from 5.45 until 6.45pm, the second for older pupils from 7 to 8.15pm. Tickets cost£1.50 and ‘drinks and a biscuit’ were included in the price. It is perhaps a little sad to reflect that in a few years time these same children will not be satisfied with a (soft) ‘drink and a biscuit’ in order to have a nice time.
ST PETER’S CHURCH. It is understood that St Peter’s is soon to launch an appeal for £150,000 for refurbishing its church hall. Further details to follow.
SUMMERFIELDS. Author, archi-vist, ex-pupil and ex-teacher Nicholas Aldridge, of Summerfields’ School has kindly sent the Voice an illustrated account of the school: Time to Spare. He’s  also sent twenty or so postcards showing life at the school. More details soon. A second old boy, Richard Compton-Miller, now a journalist with the Evening Standard, has expressed an interest in recounting his days at the school.
HORNTYE XMAS. Horntye Park sports centre is offering Xmas lunches every day from Wed 1 Nov through to Fri 22 Dec. Prawn cocktail or soup, traditional roast turkey and Christmas pudding or apple pie plus mince pies and coffee. All for a modest £11.50.
