You may also want to follow links to historical information (which is of course not strictly news). For example our Famous OMs page or Graham Walker’s downloadable article on OMs who died in the second World War, which you can find here: OM WW2 war dead

We particularly invite members to contribute additional members contributions here (click on the +New button above and add a post).

Beryl MacCallum nee Poyser

Posted on October 21st, 2020

My stepmother, Beryl MacCallum, died peacefully in her sleep last night.
OMs of the 1970s may remember her as the Head’s Secretary at MGS. She and
my father, who had taught at MGS since 1957, retired around the time of
their marriage in 1979.

Anyone from that era interested in attending the funeral could contact me
via my webmaster address, webmaster@oldmaidstonians.org.uk

Update: the funeral will be at 14.45 on November 23rd at Vinters Park Crematorium.
No flowers please. Donations to Save the Children.
