I went to St Hugh's aged 10 and stayed till I took my A-levels (1975-82). I then went off to University in Bangor, North Wales, where I got a 2i in History in 1985. Since 1989 I have been in London working for HM Customs (never worked in VAT, I was a Gentleman of the Excise till 2002 when I transferred to Anti-Smuggling work). Currently I am based at Heathrow. Many happy memories of St Hugh's. Maybe not so many happy ones of Tommy, after lunch, dismissing Mill Lane and then uttering the immortal words "For manual labour..."
Hi keep looking to see if anybody I know has posted a message but looked at latest update and thought I better do one myself. Spent 22 years in construction industry without having the same success as Paul Jolley but now in my 15th year of teaching (what was I thinking of!)
Message: Hi John, had another fond look at this wonderful section on the internet. Thanks again for putting it together. I had a fantastic six years at Tollerton Hall between 76 and 82, and still long for the memories. For a lot that attended that hallowed place, it was magical; and the fact that it closed a real shame. Please send me any news of old boys, or anything to do with the memory that was St Hugh's College. All the very best,
