9th February 2009

Hello sorry for taking ages to respond. Just to start off I urge Burgess Hill Town Council to get in touch with the local goverment in Burbank, California. The main reasons I recommend Burgess Hill to twin with the American town to add to the links with the French and German towns they are already twinned with, is that they were both towns me and my US online pen pal Ashley Ingram, were educated in both, and both despite growing a fair bit since World War II, they are still fine examples of small towns in England and the US (although Burbank has pop 100,000 compared to BHs 30,000 in US terms it is a small town). Also they are pretty close to fine citys Brighton and Los Angeles (just 5 minutes from Hollywood), but keep their unique character. Will get in touch with local councils the next few days with the idea.

Talking of Burgess Hill I returned to the town yet again for a school reunion at a fine pub just accross the road from the former Abbotsford School, having drinks with lots of old faces pupils and teachers and making it still feel like yesterday I left the school. There was the legendary teachers Francis Fahey, the legend Chris James and his assistant Nick Taylor, the teacher that encountered Mr Ball on his first day at the school way back in 1993 Mr Graham Jenkins, and of course the fine family that made Abbotsford School a suscess before leaving the Moxons (Peter, Anne and daughter Jenny).  

I also would like to thank Ben Miller, Eddie Biddle and Paul Hayward for some fine night outs in Brighton the last month with the birthday celebrations at the indie night at Digital and then sampling legend Grooverider and some Japanese Electro House.

Finally I plan to return to college next year to study history and hopefully with more support from close friends getting right pass to uni and hopefully teach.
