Mr Dealey

Robert remembers John Dealey the butler, and so does Stephen Fry. I'm afraid I don't remember him myself (sigh).

The Stouts Hill Magazine reports that he came to Stouts Hill in February 1940 and worked there until his death in June 1975, apart from a short spell in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. He was survived by his wife Sue, their children Colin and Valerie, and grandchildren. He was “a very sincere Christian and played a full and active part in the life of the Parish Church.”

Newspaper cuttings

Today I've added a new Web page with two newspaper cuttings about the closure of the school in 1979, and the announcement of the founding of the Kingfisher Society in 1970.

Recently I've also added three new photos from Michael Read to the 1959-67 collection.
