  1. Hi
    Thanks for setting up this site. Is it still active? If so, I have a few photos I could scan in and send you.
    I was at Commonweal 1959-69.

    does anyone know what happened to Mrs Tanque? She taught me history and I’d love to know what happened to her. I know she lived in Chiswick and had a daughter who was at the peace camp at Greenham Common.

    Not sure if this website is still updated but I’m sure I have a blazer in the loft somewhere and several photos including some of Miss Blunden’s retirement presentation assembly.
    Let me know if they are of interest and I’ll sort them out.

      Hi Janette

      If you could scan the photos and email them to me, I will put them on this site. I had left before Miss Blunden retired and would love to see her retirement presentation

      Many thanks

    I have just read the note you left on the Old Knots Retired website. I noticed your note is from August 2012, but if your friend is still looking for someone to take the items relating to Commonweal, I would be happy to take them. I am an old girl myself and would be more than happy to help. Please do drop me an email and I will pass on my phone number. Regards, Melanie Gibbins

    Class of 1966. Had a reunion with Susan Bowser and 5 others on Saturday. Sue has a lot of memorabilia relating to Commonweal. She does not use a computer. Is there a name, address or phone number that she could contact as she may well in the future wish to donate these items to the Old Knots, rather than have them destroyed. If you could contact me on this e-mail address I will forward on any information you could give me.
