Ernie Brewer

 died in 1997


Ernie was a regular correspondent during his retirement. He always wrote of the happy times he had at Holloway and how much he enjoyed the school, it's activities and the happy, helpful Common Room, which, he said was 'babbling with talent'.

Ernie always mentioned school camp - specially at Corfe Castle with Alf Goldsmith, Allen Brockman, etc. he so enjoyed the cycling tours with Gordon Clarke, who Ernie described as 'a wonderful friend and colleague'.

Violet has written to me saying how pleased she was that Ernie survived to celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary and how she appreciated those who attended Ernie's thanksgiving service.
