Ray Hunt writes to tell us of the death of his brother, Howard ‘Mac’ Hunt (1940-1946). A memorial service is to be held at All Saints Church Branksome Park on 14th January 2010. Ray writes:
We both attended Annual Dinners until recently. Among his immediate contempories were, Chris Eales, John Demont, Gordon Prosser, John Ives, John Davis, Malcolm Gritt, and many others.
Sean Boyle (1994-2001) sends the following update:
Upon leaving school in 2001 I decided to have a year out. I worked for 6 months at Sky Sports in London before spending 5 months travelling around the world. This definitely gave me a broader perspective on things and held me adjust to the change of going to university. I then attended Somerville College, Oxford, graduating in 2005 with a 2:1. During my time at university I continued working at Sky Sports in my holidays and this turned into a full time job in 2005, a couple of weeks after leaving Oxford. At Sky I began initially as a runner working on a broad range of shows before finding a job in the Cricket department as an assistant producer. I have recently taken on the role of a producer on a show called Cricket AM which runs during the summer months on Sky.
