We are very sad to share the news that Charlie Menzies passed away at the end of July. He was a dedicated member of staff whom many will remember fondly, he retired from the School less than four years ago.
Charlie’s funeral will take place at 2:00pm on Wednesday 7th August in Uppingham Parish Church, followed by a committal at Kettering Crematorium.
If you would like to pass on your condolences to his wife Heather, former Matron, please send a letter or email via the OU Office which we will be pleased to forward on.
We are sad to report that former member of staff Gordon Braddy passed away on 27th June after a lengthy illness.
After joining Uppingham as a young man in 1956, Gordon became an inspirational English teacher as well as Housemaster of Constables from 1964 until 1979 when he left the School. He remained in Uppingham in his latter years and saw a regular stream of his former pupils who were always delighted to spend time with him.
A funeral service will be held at Edgar Newman Chapel, Kettering Crematorium (Rothwell Road, Kettering, NN16 8XE) on Thursday 18th July at 3.00pm.
If you wish to attend the service, please contact Richard Boston at email@example.com, by 12th July, so that we can confirm numbers to the organisers.
Any recollections of Gordon that you would like to share for the School archives and in the OU Magazine woudl be gratefully received, please email Jo Franklin by 15th August. Thank you.
