A lovely meeting with OH Past President Ralph Hedderwick (B 30)

The Haileybury Society - the Haileybury community - is all about lifelong bonds and shared memories and it always a great pleasure to meet with OHs to talk about old times.

Recently, Society President Doug Everard (BF 73) and Society Secretary Jane Everard (L76 & Alb) took time out to visit Witney in Oxfordshire to meet with a very special OH, Ralph Hedderwick (B 30) and his wife Pat.

At 102, Ralph is still full of the joys of Spring. A past President of the Haileybury Society and a former Treasurer of Council, Ralph retains a tremendous affection for his old school and is a staunch believer in its values. Indeed, Doug and Jane were honoured to receive a generous donation from Ralph as a token of his affection for all that the Society is doing in its work to support OHs and to promote the school in the wider world.

Many say that blood runs thicker than water; in Ralph's case, we think his blood actually runs magenta!
