Dahlings, I hacked most of these pages in straight after the '98
reunion in a nostalgic fit of teenage enthusiasm, but it's taken me a whole
year to get round to putting them somewhere you could see them. Sorry. They
are very incomplete, not just because I am lazy and incompetent, but because so many
of you dossers failed to hand in your essays
("What I did in my life (so far)") at
all. Of course I was going to do lots of other clever stuff too but more life
happened. Anyway, as a first stab, I decided to bluff
and post what I had regardless of its shortcomings. Many thanks to those who have contributed,
especially reunion and period photographs (Stuart, Clement, Henrietta, Fiona B, Peter, Gabriel, Mel D); illustrated contributions (Bill, Fiona R, Henrietta, Judy , Jenny,
Kevin); vampires, weasels and other
beautiful fauna (Fiona R). And thanks to Jeremy M for preserving and digitalizing
the manuscript for the Bedalian Wasteland .
Five more years of skiving, dossing
and trouser rolling,
I keep getting asked 'Whatever
happened to those pages
you did?'. I finally got off the sofa for five minutes to add
http://bedales73.org.uk, a torch
to shine into the bike shed where the bashful pages have been lurking
all the time. So here they are once more, still
pathetically incomplete (no, apathetically incomplete), random
and spurious... some things never change do they?
And in the meantime
have all added pages too. There's even an official site
http://www.bedales.org.uk/ . I mean
how unselect can you get?

noises, links, pages, blatant lies, sillinesses.
or other useful gossip: please e-mail me
- Nerd note: To view the yearbook index pages and some
others,you need a browser that supports 'frames' e.g. Microsoft Explorer 3.0
or later, or Netscape 2.0 or later (though I have only tested with the latest versions,
that is IE 5.0 & Netscape 4.6). If you haven't got frames, you can still
get to individual entries via the 'outdoor work' page.
