Seeking Nigel Gray

Ian Wright, BS 1970-77, is trying to get back in touch with Nigel Gray. He writes:

I attended Bournemouth School from 1970-77 and can only say that it gave me a tremendous education and preparation for the rigours of life afterwards.

I am trying to trace one of my old classmates who I was last in contact with about ten years ago. He moved to Johannesburg in about 1988 and had worked as a brewer for some years but had a traumatic experience when he was burgled and was fortunate to survive. I have had no replies to emails and the phone number I had seemed to have changed so did not get any joy there either.

Ideally I would like someone to make polite enquiries at the address but don’t want to ask the police to do so. Do we happen to know of any old boys who live in Johannesburg who might be in a position to do the above. The chap concerned is Nigel Gray, born around December 1958. At school he had an address in Glenferness Avenue.

Following a request from an Old Member, I have just enabled the option to follow or ‘subscribe to’ this blog by email. This will send you anything posted here as an email, and could be useful if events come up when you haven’t checked the site for a while. You will find this new option at the bottom of the sidebar to the right of this page.

Pre-dinner Golf Event, 19th September 2014

Are you ready for it? Please contact me soon if you are going to enter. Besides our regular “hackers” and semi-pro players, we would like to see some new Old Bournemouthians, especially some younger faces. So come along to join us and maybe lift the annual OB Golf title and trophy. All OB’s can play even if you are not necessarily going to the Dinner.

Depending on numbers entering and start times available from the course then we will either play Queens Park, which can take 4 or more hours or the Highcliffe Castle course (near Christchurch) which can take up to 3 hours. We try to have the first tee off time around 12.30pm and at at seven minutes intervals thereafter.

The entry cost is around £25, which is the green fee and prize money
for winner and runner up.

If you would like to play, then please send your email address, phone number, and postal address, along with details of your handicap (if you have one) and the years that you were at the school, to Alan Carver by email.
