This Board has been a roller coaster ride for me. I found it 6 months or so after my father died. He was never prepared to discuss the schools.

This is another weight lif...

Dr Whiteman It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am interested by the last PS. My father died in September 2004. For years we had deliberately not talked about St Vedast as there was, in many ways, nothing to say. He never apologised and possibly did not see the need to do so. He continued t...
