BLUNDERBUSS is aimed at former members of both Farnham Grammar Schools and Farnham College who attended between 1971 and 1979.
The website has developed over the last few years and aims to reach a wider audience through cyberspace which will (hopefully) prompt wider and faster feedback, and bring back happy memories.
Currently BLUNDERBUSS is masterminded by Mike Mehta and John Clarke, who just so happen to have been involved in the production of the original Roneoed editions of BLUNDERBUSS (courtesy of Mrs Brown).

The Richard Cann Wildlife Foundation
Jon Knight and Mike Mehta are preparing for a cross country run to raise funds for The Richard Cann Wildlife Foundation. This was set up by Kate Cann (formerly Kate Heathcote) who attended Farnham Sixth Form College at the same time we did, in memory of her son.
The run details have been posted on The Richard Cann Wildlife Foundation Facebook page (see post dated 15 September). The run takes place in the Chilterns, on the 13th November 2016 and anyone who would like to join Jon & Mike would be most welcome.

Stop Press! Closure of the FGGS Old Girls Association
We regret to report that following the FGGS Reunion & AGM (24 September) the Old Girls Association has bowed to the inevitable and voted to close the Association.
Gill Picken tells us that they intend to produce a final newsletter (Jill Goddard and contributors to it willing). For the future, Blunderbuss plus the Old Farnhamians website and the FGGS Facebook site will be used for former members to keep in touch. The final letter to members of the Old Girls’ Association can be read here.
