Welcome to the Guestbook
Feel free to add messages relating to the site and the school. The only rules are: real names only, no personal attacks and no unrelated messages (inappropriate messages may be edited/withdrawn without warning).
It would be appreciated if you gave an email address, where you now live and said when you were at the school, but you don't have to.
Plase note that if you click on an email address below you will need to replace ~DOT~ with . and ~AT~ with @ in your email program. The Guestbook presents these this way to avoid email address harvesters collecting your email addresses from the page. I know it's a pain, but it's very much better than the alternative.

I've just been perusing the photos on the home page. What a change from when I first attended 74 yrs ago. It seems no time since my first day, Short pants & a snotty nose.

Hi Mike,
Sorry to read about your health problems and hope that you will be well enough for a beer (or a coffee) in Rothbury. We'll be in Northumberland in late August to late September.
Regards from a warm and pleasant Montreal, home of the world's greatest International Jazz Festival which started last night (Oooooops). I'm writing this at ten to one Sunday morning.

From Mike T:   Hi Alex. I'm really not too bad now, thanks, and starting to catch up. Good to hear that you'll be in old Blighty in August/September, and it would be lovely to see you over in Rothbury.

I echo Bruce Graham's sentiments. Thanks, Mike. Get well soon and keep up the good work.

My abysmal typing in my earlier message entered my email address incorrectly, omitting an "e".

I'll get it right this time.

Mike

I know that I speak for all of the regular contributors over the years when I say that you have absolutely no need to apologise. You have provided, single-handedly, a wonderful medium for the exchange of information, tittle-tattle and pure nostalgia for all of us. When I wrote a memoir of my life for my daughters a few years ago there were several "mea culpas" in there!

I hope the medical problems have been resolved and that Rothbury isn't visited by another maniac killer. If they have discovered asbestos problems in the old school buildings I wonder if we can sue the Town Council for any health problems? That's a joke, by the way.

It will be fascinating to see how the new Sixth Form works out - assuming, that is, that we all hang on to the perch long enough to see the results.

Take care

Naele, you are forgiven!
I have a bothersome tendency to transopse letters so that I have to check everything and even then do not pick up all the errors.(I can hear Charlie Constable saying, "Same careless old young Moyse.)"
Just in case the medium has obliterated the message, is there anyone there who wishes to go to Ridgeway School at 11am on Wednesday 25 May?

You beat me to it Alex. Remorse was flooding my very soul after my Eric foray, especially after Liz read both our entries and commented, "Typical High School bloaters!" I'm sure she still bears the scars of errors, noted in red by her boss, in her early days as a typist.

As a kinder afterthought about Eric's "yuos"...perhaps he's like many of us 'Wrinklies'. who are speed demons at the computer and whose hands fly over the keyboard like Kramer on Murphy Brown (Seinfeld episode ?) and make the occasional digital mishap.
As for Neale's muscular generation...lucky him!!
Regards from a bright sunny and warmer (+ 3 C) Montreal afternoon.
