I am greatly saddened to tell you that I have just received an email from Tony Deacock's daughter-in-law to inform me that Tony passed away on Monday.
I have replied to her sending our very best wishes and telling her of the very high regard we all had for Tony and his contribution on the committee.

I have taken the liberty of posting an account of my crossing to France in a small sailing boat and some of the things that happened to a couple of old, and now wiser 70 something, men. It is under News and titled Rubicon.

A new era begins for the OCs website with two pictures sent in by Dick Francis (1963-1970):
As an occasional visitor to the Old Cicestrians web site I am always struck by the lack of pictures from my era (1963-1970). I wonder if you might wish to upload the attached scanned images from my early years at Chi High.
I think they are both from 1963 or 1964 when I was in Mr Murch’s first form class (1X ??) and also a member of the famous Bug Club.
I know I have another picture of me in the football 2nd XI, but I can’t seem to find it at the moment.
I made contact with a few Old Boys from my generation via the Friends Reunited web site before it closed down and I’m always interested in keeping in touch with any OB’s from my time.

I would like to thank all the boys that have taken the trouble to write to me with their stories of "Life after School". I have a few in the pipeline, but there will never be too many.
I have enjoyed reading them and I am sure you have.
Canon Bartlett's Sermon 18 September, 1989
I have only just read this
wonderful sermon by Canon Bartlett and thought it worth publishing as a
stand-alone piece here on the News page and on our Facebook Wall.
