Colin Hall (Howe, 1946-53) colinhallmarketing@btinternet.com
Self employed consultant in the building services industry, I have been a member of the OEA since leaving school, where I had the privilege of knowing Cyril Broom, Charles Hill, 'Pump' Capt. Hipkins, Taffy Neath DFC among others. Now Vice President of the OEA I am wondering why so many distinguished former pupils are not members of their club. For details of how to join, the benefits and forthcoming events, check out the Old Emanuel Association page on this site.
John Leech (1953 - 1960) JLeech1336@aol.com

Geoff Sewards (1945-55)sewards@which.net
My name is Geoff Sewards and I was at Emanuel from 1945-55. Thanks to Aaron Rogers I then went to Cambridge and spent most of my career teaching mathematics at what became Coventry University. I am now retired and spend a lot of my time as a school governor and organising school governors in Coventry. I am very interested in how effective the National Numeracy Project proves to be.
Tony Sweetsur (Nelson, 1952-1959)tony.sweetsur@kvaerner.com
After leaving schoool did a BSc. (Hons) Chem. Eng. degree at London University. Got involved in the offshore oil and gas industry when I immigrated to Australia in 1968. Worked around the world since then - always in the oil patch. Now resident in UK and plan to stay here until, hopefully, early retirement. Great memories of Emanuel School, the cafe on Battersea Rise and the Temperance Billiards Hall, Clapham Junction !!!!
