Ian Smith 1960-1965 Login or Register to view email address. Remember Ian Smith? used to live above the TV shop at 22, High Street. I'm his widow, he died in 1990. He went to Banbury and did a pre dip, then to Nottingham Art College and studied Theatre Design. He then worked at Nottingham Playhouse until his death. You may remember that he had the first ever conviction for possession of cannabis in Chippy! He also had a taste for alcohol, and never managed to stop drinking, which lead to his death. He was a sweet and gentle man, never the nasty drunk. I would love to hear memories of him from any of his friends. His mother is still around, living in North West Scotland.

I left Chpping Norton in March 1975 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.

One is a musician and musical theatre performer/actor, the other is about to become a lawyer. I still live in Melbourne but am planning to move to Blackwood next year where I have a log cabin on about an acre of bush. It is a tranquil and delightful place among tall, tall eucalyptus trees and lots of native birds and wildlife (the occasional koala bear and wallaby) about an hour or so from the city. I still miss the country, even after all these years and am really looking forward to the move. I manage to come 'home' quite frequently - usually every year - to keep in close touch with family and friends. I still keep in touch with Janet Hughes and Irene Moss and would love to catch up with anyone else who used to catch the school bus from Woodstock. Also, would love to catch up with Gail Matthews Helen Longshaw, Wendy Goodall, Helen Guy or Denise Peachey or anyone else I have forgotten from the 1967 year of 5B.

We were a bit of a bad bunch, me, Anne Maguire, Gayle Matthews, Jenny Schroder.(Having said that i should admit I was the worst troublemaker, I made some teachers' lives hell which I feel sorry about now) I live in Oz now in Byron Bay, 2 grown up kids.

Nigel Canning 1963-1970 Login or Register to view email address. Hi all who remember me! I left Chippy in Dec '70 and, after bimbling about for a couple of years trying to decide what to do with the rest of life, went to teacher training college (73 - 76) to do PE and maths. Managed to scrape through and thought about 3 years in the Army before settling into teaching. Went to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 77 being commissioned in 78, and have never looked back! I married my girlfriend from teacher training days and we have a daughter Izzy (now 20) who is at Birmingham Uni doing Mediaeval English and history. I have a house near Chichester (W Sussex) but am currently living in Aberdeen where I am the Training Major for Aberdeen Universities Officer Training Corps - and loving every minute of it. So, 27 years service and just 3 to go before I retire. Anyone want to offer an old soldier a job?? Contacts gratefully received - if only to catch up on past times.

Roger Crudge 1963-1970 Login or Register to view email address. Having spent five and a half, mainly wet days, dairy farming in Devon have finally come to my senses and returned home. Actually we have moved to Kingham,(possibly the only way to move from Churchill to Kingham involves five years quarantine in Devon)! We are hoping to start making cheese again very soon, a skill learnt 'down Debn' though not in competition with Daylesford!
Lydia is in sixth form at Oxford High, but Madeleine is following family tradition and is in fourth form at Chippy. The little ones are at Kingham primary and thoroughly enjoying themselves. I attended the reunion of our year, organised by Jane Sewell and really enjoyed meeting up with everyone, though the sight of Cereta, scarecly altered by the years was rather upsetting!(the rest of us be-zimmered and her fresh from running some marthon)! Looking forward to the next re-union.

After leaving Chippy, became apprentice to a firm of lithographic plate makers in St. Clements, Oxford, attending printing college in London. Had a near-fatal motorcycle accident travelling to Chippy Mop Fair, and during rehabilitation decided to go to art school, first in Banbury, then in Loughborough.
It was at this time I discovered the Bahai Faith and have tried, with varying degrees of success, to follow that way of life. I married and divorced, then married Maggie Scott. We have four offspring, born in 1982, 84, 86 and 89. Harriet, Philippa, Charlotte and Alexander.
I have painted ever since leaving art college, minus the two years I spent working as a labourer and ganger on a building site in Loughborough. I have illustrated children's and adult titles. To date I have exhibited paintings in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and various other cities in Scotland. Also Cumbria. I like playing football and still struggle with all forms of administration, which is why I paint. I live in the Scottish Borders. I couldn't afford to buy LP (vinyl) records, so we used to listen to Sanatic Majesty's by the Sones owned by Nick Page and the Double White Beatles owned by a rich farmer's son whose name escapes me, in the common room. If anyone remembers 'Hank', then please get in touch.

Edwyn James 1965-1973 Login or Register to view email address. I was Head of Science at the school from 1965-73, and of the Sixth Form for some of that time, followed by Peter Scrase.  During that time the science laboratories were expanded.  We exhibited at the Oxford Science Fair and took parties on field trips, sometimes in a pair of ex-ambulances - Goonhilly Downs in Cornwall, the residential centre at Tregoyd, South
Wales, Saffron Walden and points east, and more locally the Post Office training school at Leafield.  In school  I have happy memories of starting sixth-form hockey and of joining in other activities such as the swimming parties organised by Jenny Allen.
 
If you are one of those from this period, and our paths crossed, I would welcome contact.  During that time I became extensively involved in national (GCE) examining.  Subsequently I went to Schools Council.  Last December I retired, after some years in Paris with OECD, working with
international groups, for instance on the new developments opened up by the use of computers in education.

With my sisters Jane and Liz and my brother John we span from about 1963-1976 at Chippy school. Even though I did fine academically I found school unbearably tedious and remember crossing off every maths lesson one by one until I could leave in 1972! I spent 2 years at a ballet school in London, but realized that I wasn't actually good enough for a professional career. Ended up training as a radiographer. Travelled extensively in Asia, Australia and South America with my first husband. I've been settled in Greenwich and working in London for the last 20 years, the last 12 of those with Stephen who I married in 2003. He is now retired from his health service job and we are planning our escape from the city. Though I came to hate school I do have fond memories of my mates like Anna Gatling, Barbara Birchmore and Sheila Graham. I used to visit Chippy regularly until my mum died in 1998 but have only been once since then. It was my German penfriend's brother who told me about this site.

It has been a while since Chippy days but who could forget. I have a small blue Hymn book containing many autographs and it would be great to know where these people are who made their mark.
Not much more to add, other than I met some of the nicest people I could hope to meet back then - and it includes teachers.

Have started, built up and then sold two IT companies. So have managed to complete that cycle and can now avoid work totally by amongst many things, playing golf (badly), skiing (OK) and scuba diving (OK). Married Fiona in 1979 and have three great kids, all girls 16, 12 & 9. Still return to Chippy every couple of months to visit my Dad.

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.

Two daughters born 1977 and 1980, Four granddaughters (born 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2004), Three grandsons (born 1998, and twin boys in 2001). We will be celebrating our 30th anniversary in November 2005. I work for Thames Valley Police in Banbury, having been a chef and a Fireman. I am still in touch with many from my year (160+) and also from other years. I love to travel, funds permitting! I have also written a book about growing up in the 1960's called 'Simpler Then'. It retails at £4.95, but all ex-chippy can buy it cheaper. I have also written a book of poetry, helped by other ex-chippy pupils - How One Grows in Rhymes and Prose. I have also republished five school magazines from Spendlove, in three volumes called "Under Wychwood", and three volumes of true stories from the Banbury Genealogical list called "Before I Forget" with another three volumes in progress. Currently working on a book about Enstone. Anyone who knows me, get in touch. I always answer e-mails..
