President: William Gosling Lord of the Manor

Audley End House - a talk and presentation
by Ted Pretty MBE

The recent presentation for HRLHS was an extremely

intersting and humorous talk by Ted Pretty MBE.

Although retired for 20 years from his work at Audley

End House an enthusiasm for his trade, as a plumber,

specifically working with lead, was all embracing.

Following two interviews he was offered a 6 months

trial with a promise of a contract yet 38 years and 4

months later he retired but still NO CONTRACT! His

introduction covered periods when he worked not only

at Audley End but also loaned to the Houses of

15062 March 2016 Parliament (saving a wetting for Winston Churchill
following roof repairs) and 5 years at the Tower of

Carpet...Vinyl...Wood London before returning to Audley End. He
reminisced details gleaned from a previous older
workforce referring to ‘upstairs/downstairs’ attitudes.

Our Year 6 children took their SATs (Statutory

Assessments Tests) last week and we were all very

impressed with the way they conducted themselves and

handled the tests during the week – we even had a few

children who said that they had really enjoyed the week!

They attended breakfast club every day where they had a

chance to relax and eat breakfast with their friends before

the tests. Well done Year 6.

MEMORIALS Year 2 also completed their SATs last week. The children
performed exceptionally well and we look forward to
Direct From Stonemason sharing the results with parents in the end of year reports.
Miss Ingrouille and Mrs Skyrme would like to congratulate
them on all their hard work and efforts during the year. We
are all very proud of you Year 2!
