Tell us about your most unusual meeting with a Priory person

While at a Christmas Eve party back in about 1993, I happened to mention to one guest that I had lived in Jamaica. He began telling me of his experience of attending school in Jamaica. I immediately began to recognise him from nearly 20 years - We were in the same class, 1973 - 1974. The name: Richard Webster.

What do you think of the Priory Website?

It's a great idea. I hope people will continue to submit material and interviews.
