Mr Lee was my tutor and taught me either metalwork or woodwork (that was how much I paid attention!), he called me diffident. And the name Pennington as Head certainly rings a bell, he smacked the back of my legs with a cane of some kind, and I hardly felt it. A symbolic punishment i think.

Better late than never, but I have only recently been a member of FF.

I was at CCSS back in 1960 and had Mr. Dunn for Biology I seem to remember. He was also the coach for the school rugby team of which I was a member for a short time. I do remember scoring a try, and he said it was one of the best he had seen. I think he said that to keep me on the team, but I did not like the game and left shortly thereafter. I was a soccer and tennis player.

I used to live over the Book Club (Booksellers) in a flat with my parents and sister.

I still have a good school friend in Crowborough, and I get over to see him whenever time permits. I moved to Canada in 1974, spent about nine years in Asia and now live in Texas, USA.

For Jenny, I helped build the pool and used to look after it. Never did I think I would own a pool one day. Was Pennington the headmaster when you went to the school? Mr. Lee was there who taught English.

I was Jenny Langridge and was at CCS from 1959 onwards. It was the time we were raising money for the swimming pool but I never got to swm it as it was completed when I had left. Another memory was a camping trip to Dieppe, a good time was had by all !! I was friends with Maureen Bedwell and Ann Senior and would love to know where they are now plus anyone who remembers me.
