Who remembers me? I mitched so much in 1962 that I ended up joining the Royal Navy in January 1963. Mother received a letter from the Phant (T C Roberts?) saying that if I did not return to school she would be prosecuted! I turned up when I had my first long weekend at home in naval uniform and went before the Phant. I was told not to come back! I went on and became a successful systems engineer (specialist) with Honeywell Control Systems until 2012 and left them just three months before my 65th birthday and set up a limited company to work for myself for another three years before finally retiring in March 2015! I can't say that I enjoyed the grammar school since I was bullied by teachers because I used to outgrow my uniform and had to wear civilian clothes! That was one of the reasons for matching so much!

Good looking back at the old photographs. After leaving school worked in the NHS as a psychiatric nurse in a number of different positions in both England and Wales. Had to finish through ill health but re trained as a Primary School Teacher from which I have recently retired. I was married for 30 years before my wife died of breast cancer. I have 3 children and 5 grandchildren with another one due in December. If there is anyone who wants to contact me they can at tony.es@hotmail.co.uk

Being a 'Bush House' boy I came across this site when looking up old chums at Bush House.
I left Wales (and UK) in Feb 1966 and went with my family to farm in NZ. I have also lived in Australia for a number of years and married a Sydney girl in 1974.
I have been back to UK several times and keep in contact with a couple of Bush boys.
my address is pdross@warp9.co.nz

Regrettably I do not access the Penvro website as often as I once did but, having just done so - to read the obituary for Pauline Jenkins I decided to sign-in to the guestbook to make the comment that I consider this is a function which 'thePenvro' fulfils admirably. With each year that passes obituaries will become more regular and the Penvro will be a vehicle to keep many of us 'up-to-date' and familiar with the details of those who have passed.

Does anyone have any contact information regarding Sheila Davies and Hugh Owen who married 1971/72. Their engagement is mention in the Penvro 1971. We were at college with Sheila and lost touch.

was wondering the web and stumbled across the Penvro , in particular the article for a 1966 play called the Devils Disciple which strangely i remembered clearly with total embarassment... i was the hang man in the play and somehow had the rope stuck around the neck of the key player ... the waves of laughter were unreal and for someone who was incredibly shy destroyed any aspirations for a career in the arts!! Good to see that this initiative is ongoing. Tried to get to the reunion 10 odd years ago and got as far as Cardiff .... ended up on a plane to Ecuador whilst you guys were swapping stories.... retired as Group Chief Engineer of sab miller, no 14 on the FTSE Rod

Really enjoyed flipping through the pages of 'Grammar' history. Congratulations to the web team on a great piece of work, and thanks for all the memories of good times which you've now put out there for our kids and grandkids to connect with...Babs('55-'62) and I, now retired,split our time between Ontario and Arizona. Although we enjoyed our work stops on in Kingston(Surrey), Kingston(Jamaica), Cardiff, and Ontario, Pembroke is still home and we happily recharge the batteries at Freshwater West, and the King's Arms every couple of years...

I just want to say a huge thankyou for this photo...it is of my dear departed dad Gerald Edwards known to all as Farmer.
He died in 1993 and it is absolutely lovely for my family and I to be able to see this photo.
My dad was a lovely man, the coxswain of Angle lifeboat and a true character known to many people: I have an 11 year old son named Jack and he is like his grandad in so many ways including the cheeky sense of humour! My dad didn't live to see him but they would have been best buddies....if anyone has any memories of my dad, I'd love to hear them!
Thanks so much
Lizzie Memory
