My original post, in Friday Fact No 2, on Paddock Wood Girls Finishing School surprisingly attracted comments from some of its past students, which prompted me to do some research into the history of the school.
I posted that research on this blog in – Lightwater’s famous Paddock Wood Girls Finishing School. I’ve even mailed copies of the press articles, which I collected in my research, to a past student resident in Argentina. To another past student, this time resident in Brazil, I’ve recommended ways to get in touch with past students.
Today, I received another comment from a past student, again wondering about a potential reunion of past students.
Well, here’s my suggestion. Contact me, either through this blog, or to my council email address – email@example.com, and I’ll build an address and email list of past students. I’ll then create a short newsletter with suggestions on how to keep in touch or maybe to arrange a reunion. I might even see if it’s possible to visit the remaining school buildings and speak to one or two of the people who own flats in those buildings. There’s quite a bit of the grounds that remain, which I feel sure might prompt happy memories.
So, if you’re a past student of Paddock Wood Girls Finishing School in Lightwater, and fancy contacting other past students, let me know. I’m happy to be the facilitator, although I’ve no intention other than to just to get things going.
I’ve the email addresses of those commenting on Friday Fact No 2, and from ‘googling’ research I’ve found two other past students – Chiara Garioni and Ana Maria Capbert. I suggest past students use the Pipl, Friends Reunited, Schoolguidez websites and similar, which might throw up more names.
