This touching collection of memories of Sherborne come from Barbara Farmer a lady who lived in Sherborne Cottage, during 1954 - 1957, then a girl. She celebrated her 10th birthday in November 1954. I would very much like to know if anyone recalls this plucky young American girl introducing herself to their game of Cricket. I bet her intrusion brightened up the day. She and her husband are now retired and currently live in USA.


Brenda Wellstead whose husband Brian managed Sherborne Park Nurseries ("The Gardens") reflects upon those years.

A Clever Fraud by Jim Wigmore
I found this article by accident when searching for "James H Mosey" in a search engine. First of all this Jim is not an Old Boy of King's School nor JHM himself. He is a Stamp Collector. He has a curious tale to tell. This will most appeal to Old Boys who lived in Cyprus in 1948 and to Philatelists - to the rest of us in general.

However his original story must be considered along with the recent discovery that the stamps were not in fact frauds but samples; as brought to light here.


Stable Block rooms and environs:
Rog Dennis son of Mr "Roy" Dennis, Maths Teacher, 1957-59, has provided an intriguing perspective of Stable Block and outer buildings. These 2 photos were provided by him.
