Happy Days At Sheephatch Camp School - a Memory of Tilford.

I spent some happy times whilst a boarder at Sheephatch Camp School, Tilford. I was staying there in the very bad winter of 1947 when we were snowed in for several weeks. Had long walks in the snow to Crooksbury Hill, Frensham Ponds and the surrounding countryside.
We were all non-the-worse for our experiences. Certainly didn't have the warm padded clothing of today but kept warm by the walking we did.
Anyone else out there remember Sheephatch in the 'old' days?

My mother attended this Boarding School - around 1953. She absolutely loved it! We have just found the delightful News Letters that used to be published. Is there a reunion at all this year 2018?
