Looking for Robert Cameron
We have been contacted by a Mr Gammel who would like to get hold of Robert Cameron who was Head Boy a number of years ago. Some time ago he bought a car from Robert and he has found an item which he believes may have some sentimental value to him and wants to return it. He believes Robert is now living in Sweden but wondered if we had any contact details. Although Robert is on the database his details are not up to date, so if you have any knowledge of his whereabouts please email Julie and we can put Mr Gammel and Robert in touch.
We have to report the passing of two OWs this month:
Richard Bawden - known as Dick - died on September 21st. He was Head of History in the late 50s/early 60s and a tutor in East, later Salisbury House.
Gerald Siviour, who taught Geography and Geology in the 1960s and latterly was a volunteer signalmen on the North Norfolk Railway. We understand that his funeral will be at Earlham Road Crematorium on Wednesday, November 6th at 13.30.
Lake Maggiore, Italy
Jane Everett who was a 6th Former in 1991/92 and has a B&B at Lake Maggiore in Italy has a special offer for a relaxing break over the first weekend in November for the Tutti Santi - All Saints Weekend, a great time to enjoy the autumnal culinary delights of the Piemonte region - mushrooms, chestnuts and polenta!

Some of you may remember back in 2011 Nick Baker started to write his book: 'Forbidden Forward: The Justin Fashanu Story' and wanted to hear from anyone who remembered him. His mum, Betty Jackson, was a part-time music teacher at WC and he grew up in Shropham, Norfolk. Well the book is finally available to buy. It is available from Waterstones and WHSmith but if you order it directly from his website: www.justinfashanustory.com then it is two pounds cheaper plus he will throw in free packaging and shipping (definitely the best option!)
In the end, the book took him almost two years to complete and he managed to interview more than a hundred people who knew the footballer personally when he was alive.
History was made in August when Nadine Donelan and Ian Bird were the first couple to be married in the College Chapel. Their story can be read here.
School Song, Punk Style!
Derek Williams who was Media Technician from 1981-1985 has sent in a recording he made in the early 1980’s. This is the school song done punk style in the 6th form centre (now the music block?) on 6th March 1983. Click here to watch.
Those of you still living in Norfolk may have seen the article on the early days at the College in the August edition of KL Magazine. If not you can read it online by clicking here. This will take you to the magazine and the article is on pages 82-84.
