Wimborne, Grammar School 1886
... .......well, who would have thought, 83 years later a young alan hayball passed his 11 plus, would be wandering through the gates of this old school with his little satchel, brown blazer and cap with pink ribbon accessories, sewn on by his mum because she left it too late to buy the official uniform (drat!), which meant young alan was without the school crest embroidered on cap and blazer (taunts of 'HAYBALL's GOT NO EAGLE!' -HAYBALL's GOT NO EAGLE!' ) and consequently the wrong cap had an exceptionaly long peak! you get the picture!.. did this affect me? yes, scarred for life! (only joking!)... ........this is all by the by as I'm just here to say I'll be back to my old stopping ground this weekend for... ...Wimborne Folk Festival, Dorset 13th to 15th June 2008 I'll be drawing Caricatures of the festival goers in front of the Allendale centre, so if you are at a loose end and not too far away then why not come along and enjoy yourself, and enjoy the lively pub atmosphere, street entertainment and music. Be good to see you! (and any of my old school chums, most welcome!)
cheers al
