The Weald

Tim Gummer (Lx 00) is still working as a Partner at Ashurst

LLP in London and recently moved to Peaslake in the Surrey Hills with his wife, Frances, and two young boys, Henry and Owen.

Hamish Donaldson (Ldr 54) went with his wife on a French Polynesian cruise from Tahiti to Sydney on his way to visit a daughter in Auckland, before COVID hit.

On their return, he was busy organising Haslemere’s VE Day 75th

Anniversary Celebrations (including a Carnival and full-size Spitfire replica) – but it all had to be cancelled.

He was also due to direct the musical Salad Days in June, to be performed by the Haslemere Players, but that has had to be cancelled as well.

Since lockdown his daughters, including Catherine Broadley (W 92) have been making sure he and his wife have been obeying all the ‘rules’.

Before COVID, OO Weald Walkers John Richardson (St A 61) Bev Boag (St A 60),

Martin Boag (St A 62) Boag, and John Williams (St A 62) over from Haifa,

Armed Forces joined by John Templeton and John Sedgwick, enjoyed walks to Waverley Abbey,

the New Forest and Stansted Park, and pub lunches. May and June walks were nixed.

Howard Macnamara (Sc 49), who founded the West Sussex OO Dinners, is well and relaxed in retirement.

In March John Richardson (St A 61) was leading a Caribbean tour on board MV Braemar when cases of Covid were found on board.

The ship was put into quarantine and was stranded in the Bermuda Triangle until a port was found that would allow the ship to berth.

It was Cuba and then passengers were repatriated by a Government flight. He went into quarantine at home in the UK and then into lock down.

He fears that he has now reached the seventh, so must continue writing before the second childishness takes hold.
