New ‘Reunion 2019’ Gallery
Because of the large numbers of photographs being submitted we have created a new photo gallery with the Image Archive entitled ‘Reunion 2019’. Please take a look as there are around 80 photographs there already.
The CVTHS Archive
For the most part it is Norman Baldwin and John (Greg) Smith we have to thank for their sterling work on the School Archive which is now safely housed in Bromley Library. During the course of the reunion Norman and Greg have acquired more material to be archived which is listed here:
‘The Martin Carr Bell’
I suggested to Graham Mitchell, current custodian of the bell, that maybe it should be displayed in one of the vestibule cabinets at the old school. This is Graham’s reply:
Regarding the Bell. I haven’t any direct contact with the school as Kemnal Technology College but at the previous reunions I got the impression that history isn’t at their forefront. Others might see it otherwise. A lot has changed since our time there, for example the industrial themed murals that used be located in the entrance vestibule have gone and, indeed, the area has been structurally altered (as have many of the school buildings). It might be worth approaching the school to see what they think? I’m not aware of Kemnal’s display cabinets but it would be a pity if subsequently the Bell were lost.
I’m pleased the day went so well and is of great credit to Mick and Greg and all involved in the organisation. I’m sorry I wasn’t there in body but I was in spirit.
