Somerset bathroom renamed Goldings Hall,
this is where we knocked the lamp over for
He Who Rides a Tiger Spring 1964

Present day archway,
what’s happened to the oil tank

The remains of the original house by bottom field

At last somebody has painted the tower.
Could it be Tony Angell as a foreigner he always
had a head for heights

Wooops what happened to the dining room

Do you remember walking through
this in Oct 1963 when President Kennedy was shot,
and Pinhead shut the dance down.

The hole in the wall

Door leading to the dining room
Many a hungry boy passed this way

Charlie Charlie,
do you remember the rest?

Mike Justice made a suggestion at the re-union in 2006 that we reintroduce the “Queens Cup”
for the day and award it to the House that attended the most on the day.
The winners this year were Aberdeen and Somerset with a drawer.

The Goldings Boys graves at Waterford.
The service at St Michael & All Angels Church Waterford was at 11-30 Saturday
the 1st of October It was an opportunity to remember the Boys who are buried
there, and who never got the opportunity to pursue their training taught to them at
Goldings, but remain forever overlooking the grounds that they enjoyed in their
maturing years but sadly forgotten.

Over 100 Old Boys, Staff and their Families attended the Memorial Service to the Goldings Boys who
are buried at Waterford. Every seat was taken with Old Boys standing at the back and outside the Church
to listen to the very moving service from Reverend Fairbank, and then David Wheatley also a very
poignant but with a little humour added his Eulogy.
Two of the headstones was removed and then replaced by the one pictured right. Fred Barnes and Jean Clark above right helped make this day possible.
Below are photographs of Jean and Fred receiving their Awards

2013 Cup photos

At the 2013 Aftercare approached me to tell me when they was clearing a office they came across a card system used by Barnardo’s which indexed boys
who were in Barnardo’s and later went to Goldings. The cards appear to have the persons Barnardo’s number and their number at Goldings along with
personal details as viewed by Barnardo’s. If your name appears on this list or perhaps a former Barnardo friend for them to contact Aftercare, contact
Martine King on Tel No 0208 4987553.
I have already returned at the re-union, cards belonging to Gordon Rath, John Burr, John Mercury, and Bob Bone (Jordan)

Congratulations Jean

You’ve Made it.

An achievement to be proud of

Jean quest never ends and is still collecting funds
while she decides on her next graves project.
As Barnardos seem to be un forthcoming with
any ideas of where Jeans next project will be she
is hoping somewhere there will be an old Barnardo
Boy or Girl, who may come up with suggestions.
So if there is someone who knows of the whereabouts
of a Barnardo child’s, or children’s grave, as the boys
and girls where very often buried in large numbers
together, and it appears to have been forgotten please
contact the site and maybe Jean can take it from there.

MANY THANKS

I would like to take the opportunity to thank James Perrier for Allied Bakeries Stevenage
for sponsoring our Reunion each year.
Allied have supplied the bread and rolls each year since I have been involved with the Reunion.

October 2018

The Goldings Cup will continue in the Hertford Schools F.A. Sadly it seem to have been decided that there will
no longer be an opportunity for anyone to watch the games as it will all be done internally by the schools

Many thanks to one and all for the praise for this years re-union, but don't forget others were involved to make it a wonderful
re-union. Ellen and James Perrier who insist in Brian’s memory to help out.
The Jolly Sailor from Kent, our very own Peter Drummond, Jean and Dave Clark who want to be involved. But the
most important ingredient is you! the Old Boys and their families that make it such a success. My thanks go out to David and
Carolyn whom I'm sure his father would be very proud he's once more around us which is his rightful place, and Mike Justice
for his able speech on the day. I do enjoy doing it! see you all next year on the 5th of October!

Old Boy David Swinger has his Autobiography
"Just a number" released this month
31st March 2018 available from Amazon £7-99.
I'm sure it will be very interesting reading

An Email sent to David Willacy from Mr John Annet and David Willacy 's reply February 2018
Harvesters FC has been booked on Tuesday 27th March, 4:30pm, for the HSFA U/14 Goldings Cup Final.

I shall organise officials as well for you and collect the medals and trophy for the game.
If you can send me some squad details, including players names, manager names and route to the Final by Monday 12th March I will also try to put
together some programmes.
