St Hugh's College, Tollerton


Kevin Sherry: "Thank you Alan for sharing the photos and videos of the 70th anniversary service. It was great to see Father, now Canon, Bowdren still looking so young and fit. I saw on the last pages of the service program, a list of people who had passed away. It was sad to see our old English teacher, David Hately, on the list. When did he pass away?"

Tony Williams: "I attended St Hugh's College, Tollerton Hall between 1961 and 1965, and looking back, they were just great years, which I enjoyed immensely. I've never managed to keep in touch with any of my colleagues, which is sad. I just wonder if anyone now remembers me. Also sad the college no longer exists, such changing times, eh!"

Anthony Charlton: "I was a student at Tollerton from 1958 to 1960 and would be interested in getting in touch with anyone who may remember me from those years. I am planning an extended visit back to the UK from New Zealand next year (2018) and it would be good to meet up with any of my old mates. I enjoyed your article, Michael Kerrigan, and remember well my time playing the "good angel" in Dr Faustus, urging you to repent."

Michael Kerrigan: "January 2015: A friend from my time in Rome asked me if I knew anything about another fellow-Roman, Brendan Howling - who was also at St Hugh's at the same time as I (I see from my old Hugonian that he was organist in 1959). If anyone has any information about him, we'd be very grateful; please message via the form on the Contact page."

John Groome: "I was at St Hughs from 1966/1967 and have now been living in New Zealand for 20 years. Just taken early retirement.
