1976-1979 Login or Register to view email address. I am currently living in Granada/Spain, (trying to learn Spanish)for the last 4 months but I think Mr Howlett was right when he suggested I drop the language option. When we are not in Spain we live in Hackney, the nice bit. I have a wonderful 10 year old son. I work for Islington council as a Social Worker. Thanks John for creating this great site. Thanks to Sonia for organising our reunion, a few years back, it was great seeing everyone.

I now live and work in the Zurich Canton of Switzerland. Speak dreadful German and enjoy target shooting in one of the most free, relaxed and safe countries in the world.

The journey from Chippy involved working at the start of the microcomputer revolution, a degree in electronics and several jobs and contracts across south east England. Having two children of my own and inheriting four more. A busy and challenging life. My best wishes to everyone where ever you are now and in the years ahead.

Chris Baldwin 1959-1966 Login or Register to view email address. Married to Judith (nee Franklin) who left school the same year that I did. She went on to Madeley College and I went on VSO to Jamaica. A year of teaching taught me that the school teaching profession was not for me so I dropped my place at Loughbrough and instead went to Liverpool University where I got both a BSc and a PhD in geology. I taught for ten years at UEA in Norwich and then left to become Chair of the Geology Department at Boston University here in the USA. Later I became Associate Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at BU but left there seven years ago to become Dean of Arts and Sciences here at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. One year ago I stepped down as Dean and I am now Professor of Geology - both teaching and doing research, This year Judith and I celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We have two children: Adam who is an architect in Dallas, and Chloe who is just completeing a biochemistry degree at the University of Texas at Austin.
We live on 30 acres (very green and very wooded - very unlike the typical image of Texas) in east Texas, about 65 miles north of Houston. We have a nice connection with the Cotswolds as we own seven sheep including two of the Cotswold breed (Our sheep are all named after famous "strumpets" and include Nell Gwynn, Madame de Sevigny, The Duchess of Alba, Cammila Parker Bowles, Monica Lewinsky, and the two Cotswolds who are Mandy Rice Davis and Kristine Keeler. They are all guarded by a donkey called Mrs. Simpson who is supervised by a dog called Mr. Darwin. The dog and donkey do frequent battle with coyotes and with the odd Bobcat that predates our chickens!

Tim lived in Fordham, Cambridgeshire, with his wife Linda. He had two children, Terry and Sarah, and two grandchildren, Nathan and David. He worked as a lorry driver both in England and abroad. He had been suffering from an undiagnosed condition for some years which was not discovered in time, and sadly died on Easter Sunday, April 12th, this year, aged 58. Tim loved his time at Chippy school and often reminisced about it. He was a popular pupil as he was in later life when he had many friends. He is greatly missed by his family in Chippy and Fordham.

Jackie Barrett 1968-1973 Login or Register to view email address. Now Jackie Walker.
I left Chippy in 1973 to emigrate to Adelaide, South Australia, with my family and got married to Fred in 1974. I trained as a psychiatric nurse and then moved to New Zealand in 1978. There I completed my general nurse training and worked in a variety of wards until going into nursing education in 1984. I have worked at Christchurch Polytechnic for 16 years, teaching in the Diploma, then in the nursing degree programme and in post-graduate courses. I first obtained a nursing degree through correspondence study over 11 years and then completed a Master of Education part-time. Earlier this year I decided to return to clinical nursing and am now working as a staff nurse in the oncology ward at the local hospital. It's been a steep learning curve again, and the shift work is a real killer when you are mid-forties! I'm really enjoying the patient care and plan to stay in clinical
nursing for a few more years yet and possibly travel on a working holiday.
I enjoy living in Christchurch, the city has lots going on, the scenery is lovely and the weather nice. I came to the Chippy School reunion in 1997 and it was great to catch up with old friends and I still keep in touch with Eunice Parker (nee Eddy) who lived in Stonesfield.

I left Chpping Norton in March 1972 after I married Terry, to live in Bracknell,Berkshire. Decided not the environment I wanted to bring up my family, so moved to Cirencester in April 1975, and produced my first daughter Zoe in July that year. Have been here ever since - its lovely. Had our second daughter Louise in May 1978. Terry and I have been married for over 29 years now. Both of our daughters went to University. Zoe is now a producer for a media company in Bishops Stortford, her boyfriend a director of the same company. Louise looking for work after backpacking for nine months and returned this July heavily in debt,carless, and of course jobless. So why is she always laughing!!! If anybody is planning a re-union (I understand there was one last year!!!!!!) I would so love to join in the get together.

Derek Brooks 1959-1962 Login or Register to view email address. Having left with a very uninspiring school achievement record, a spell in the Alcan factory laboratories left me bored. Various undistiguished jobs eventually settled into a career as a plumber which I have now been for 30 odd years, working for myself most of the time. I now live in the East Riding of Yorkshire with my wife of 32 years. I have two sons, 27 and 25. The youngest son works with me as a plumber, the eldest is a chocolate factory manager, and about to make me a grandfather for the firstb time. After four heart attacks and being on the provisional list for a heart transplant and being diabetic, I had my doubts as to whether I would ever see a grandchild!! I still have an acute interest in aircraft and used to fly a Shadow microlight until health put a stop to that. I still fly radio controlled model aircraft, a hobby I have pursued for more years that I care to remember. I lived at Little Chew and was in the same form as Rex Longshawe.

Gillian (Gill) Brown 1957-1962? Login or Register to view email address.

Now Gillian Bolton.
Moved to live in Chippy (8 Middle Row- was a hairdressers then) with my brother Phil and mum in 1957. I did about a term at the girls school (Burford Road?) where I remember Anne and Julie being very kind to me as a new girl and then went to the Grammar probably, in the first year of it being joined with the secondary. I remember the chaos of tramping between the two sites, constantly being wet and late despite rushing. My brother did about 18 months at the boys school down Church Street before joining the Grammar. We left in about 1962 moving to live near Oxford and I lost touch with most friends. I am married with two children and two grandchildren. Would be happy to hear from anyone who remembers me or my brother.

September 2006. At my belated 60th birthday I had 2 special guests - Anne (Priestland) and Sue (Tait) We had not seen each other for over 40 years.We have since met up again, in a garden centre cafe and spent at least 4 hours talking and drinking several pots of tea! Just lovely catching up on our lives and remembering names and events. As well as passing the age of 60 I now have 3 grandchildren and another one on the way early 2007
