1963 Geoff Chaplin — 8 Comments

  1. Hi, I remember you from South Park. I was a tall fat kid named Barbara Clementts. I live in Tasmania a lovely little Island off the coast of Australia. I emigrated to Australia, New South Wales in 1969. Twenty years ago we moved to Tassie and that is where we are staying. I have one husband, five children, two dogs and one cat. If you remember me I would love to hear from you.

  2. Hi Geoff,
    Where are you staying now? I used to send little notes to you when you were at Weymouth but I heard you had left there. Hoping to hear from you.

  3. Hi,
    Yes I do remember you, sounds like your enjoying life. I had a career with the Army and then the fire service, retired from that and bought a Hotel in Weymouth, Dorset. Got fed up with people so moved here to Spain, as we were also fed up with the cold. All the kids (5) are now grown up so we live quietly. People ask if the kids visit… well I suppose they would if we gave them the address. Only joking.
    Nice to hear from you, Hope you are well. I would love to hear more, if you have the time.
    Many regards Geoff Chaplin

  4. Hi,
    Yes I do remember you, and I dont know how we lost contact. We left the Hotel as we got fed up with people, so moved here to Spain, as we were also fed up with the cold. All the kids (5) are now grown up so we live quietly. Nice to hear from you and hope you are well. Would love to hear more from you.
    Many regards Geoff Chaplin

  5. Hi Geoff,
    Great to hear from you. Yes thanks we are all well here, as I hope you and your family are also. We are still in Huntingdon Cambridgeshire. I now work in Iceland as a till operater. Been there 4 1/2 years and love it. I`m married to Chris who works for Amazon in Peterboro. We have one left at home now Rebecca. And Robert part time. Robert will be moving out shortly as he has bought a house but can only get in there to decorate at weekends. Him and Laura expect their first baby on 2nd May. He is in the Infantry stationed in Bulford Hants. He did his 6 month tour of Afghanistan last year. We have 1 dog and 3 cats. And the weather here is still cold lol. Which part of Spain are you in? Nice to hear from you, take care Ann.

  6. Hi Geoff,

    I also have five children, two who are still at home. Xavier is 38 and Theron who is 31 about the only way they will leave home is if we move while they are out. We have very hot summers and winter is like English September time. I do not own a coat, a couple of jumpers if the weather gets extreme like 10 degrees centigrade. Xavier has two dogs and a cat. A Border collie, and a large brown dog that looks like Chewbakka from star wars. His cat is black and I swear the evil thing fell off a passing broom stick. Theron has a cat, a rag doll called George. Brian my husband and I have two springer spaniels Nelson and Hercules. Brian and I are both retired. We are called Senior Citizens over here, which means the same (old farts). It was lovely to hear from please keep in touch Barbara.

  7. Hi Barbara,
    Yes, nice to hear from you as well. Certainly seems an age ago, but then I suppose it was.
    I left South Park, and went on to the heady heights of Mayfield. Left school and did several jobs till I joined the army, stationed in Oman for six years, enjoyed it.
    Came out and swanned about for a while then Joined the fire service, loved that! (its the only job in the world where they give you two of everything, and you’re allowed to lose one and break the other!)
    Retired from all that and we, Pam and I, bought a Hotel in Weymouth, Dorset. We just got fed up with people, so we sold up and retired here to Spain. We are probably like you, just getting getting older and refusing to believe we cannot run around anymore.
    Five children, all ages between 35 and 23, they’re all happy, and I guess they would visit…if we give them the address!
    Like you, it’s nice and warm here most of the time but cold at the moment, its our winter. Anyway, lovely to hear from you, will keep in touch.
    Many regards Geoff

  8. Hi Geoff, you and I were in the same class. I wonder do you remember me, I was friends with Peter Colby and Mickey Newman. That might help to jog your memory.
