Geoff's party

Geoff’s party, 1973

Left to right:  Peter Gaussen, Jo Jones [Atkins], Jonathan Richards, Adrianne Ryder-Cook, Jill Krugler [Price], Stuart Fell, Pippa Bush, Jackie Harbron [Conning], Angus Willson, Fiona Wood [Adler], Jane Tarran [McCready], Kevin Kinsella, Chris Prince, Simon Colbeck, Ralph Berry, Steve Pitcher.

Jo Jones [Atkins]:   After A levels there was a party – was it at Geoff Barnard‘s aunt’s farm? Everyone had finished exams apart from  Jackie and I who did Russian and had our final exam the following day. I went to the party anyway, but after being in a field in the hot sun all day, suffered a bad allergic reaction and felt dreadful for the exam. No wonder I did so badly. Good party though.

Geoff Barnard: I’m glad you remembered that party Jo – it was a real high spot for me. Drinking cider in the sun and hanging out in the long grass by the old windmill.  Shame about your exam!

    Hi,
    I don’t know if it was this party, but I do remember going to a party at Geoff Barnard’s granny’s house and seeing the lovely sunflower paintings. It was a lovely event.
    Hope you are all well,
    Sue Shaw
