We are sad to report hearing news that Barbara Hargreaves died in January 2015 just short of her 100th birthday.
Barbara was a member of staff between 1937-1947 and employed as a housekeeper in Clyde, Plymouth and Sheffield.
President of the KHA 2008-2015
I have the privilege to collate a tribute to all those who knew Robert C Hughes, known affectionately as " Bob" Hughes, who came to Kingham-Hill School in 1930 as an eight year old, but dedicated his whole life after the second world war to the Kingham Hill Association in many ways.
Simon Briggs who knew Bob over 60 years has kindly helped me to give a valuable insight into Bob's life.
Sylvia Hughes and family would like to let you know that Bob Hughes died peacefully on 12 January 2015
Bob was for a great many years the President of the KHA (now Kingham Hillians) and dedicated his time selflessly in support of his fellow former pupils. He will be in our thoughts forever.
His funeral arrangements are as follows
On behalf of his family, I regret to have to let you know, that our father, William Henry Parker (Bill), passed away on Thursday 27th November 2014 in Nambour District Hospital, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. His age was 90 years and one month.
He greatly enjoyed keeping up to date with the latest happenings at Kingham Hill and knew much about its history. He regularly communicated, by email or via Skype, with a number of his former fellow students and staff of Kingham Hill.
He made a number of valuable contributions to the KH website over the years, sharing photos and stories and posting documents, some of which reflected the poignancy of very sad moments he experienced while in the navy during World War 2, when far, far from home.
