CCF

We do not, as yet, have a general section which explains the role and importance of the CCF to school life but if you would like to contribute such a piece please send it to Peter Higgins (see Contacts). However, we do have valued contributions in the form of recollections from Mike Evans and Nick Ratnieks ( particulary amusing - Ed ) which are reproduced below - just click on the links to open them.
