Cirencester Housing for Young People
Cirencester Housing for Young People is a charity that homes 18 young and vulnerable people between the ages of 16-25. The charity has lost a very large portion of it’s funding, which means that it will be losing 7 bed spaces, with a possibility of losing the remaining 11 bed spaces. CHYP has helped over 500 people in the past 24 years and we would like it to continue.
If you would like to contribute towards saving our charity please send donations to Millie Curtis at CHYP, 29-31 Querns Lane, Cirencester, Glos. GL7 1RL.

Peter Hurbert Spencer Harris OR 1941 to 1948
I did not attend Rendcomb but my grandfather Peter Hurbert Spencer Harris did, and I am looking for any of his old class mates. He was born in 1930 so I have guessed the dates. Please if anyone knew him may they contact me. Sadly Peter died in a car crash in 1964.

Williams and Mealing Families
I have no connection with Rendcomb College, but my grandfather came from Rendcomb and his father Charles Williams was a servant at Rendcomb when it was a private house. I have recently discovered that another relative, William Mealing, committed a murder in Rendcomb while of unsound mind. I would like to hear from anyone who may have information about the Williams or Mealing families.
There is a link to some information here.
