Getting in Touch

I don’t put my email address on the site, because it leads to lots of very dull people trying to sell me things, all of which I either don’t need or which merely serve to reinforce my insecurities.

However, if you comment on any post I can pick up your email address from there (don’t worry, it doesn’t appear on the site) and will get back to you as soon as I can.

Alternatively, you can leave a message on the Facebook page, or via Twitter

    Hi Richard
    I just found your blog this afternoon as I searched Mr Tedstone, do you know what happened to him? He was my favourite teacher ever. He reminds me of Morse, I remeber the expression as he would turn bright red yet stay completely silent when he was angry. He was however, one of the kindest people I ever met and I think of him often, I remember his favourite music was Simon & Garfunkel & we used to have it in music … ‘Feelin’ Groovy’ he used to play, and I always felt it was too frivolous for his serious image!
    I was a very quiet child at first & middle school, homelife wasn’t good. Mr Tedstone was the first person who ever complimented me or told me I was good at anything. He taught me quadratic equations when I was 10, & several times had me show my artwork or play the violin in assembley. I don’t think I had ever had that feeling that I could achieve anything before then, he gave me confidence and listened to my ideas. I once argued with him that it wasn’t fair that girls weren’t allowed to play cricket, I argued and argued and that ine time he let us play!
    He took us to see Cubbington chuch on a visit once as we were doing something to do with dating churches as topic. He really wanted to impart knowledge, and he was truthful & clear in everything he taught us.
    It was so nice to read your blog and your memories of him.

      Hi Charmaine,

      I am sorry to have to tell you that Mr Tedstone died about 18 months ago. He was in his mid-80s.

      I’m surprised that he was opposed to girls playing, given that his own daughter played so successfully. Maybe the opposition was from higher up the school, rather than from him?

      Thanks for getting in touch, it is nice to see that this old site is still generating new readers.
