HENRIETTA RAYNOR nee Creasey (pupil 1985 - 1993).
“I thought you might be interested in news of Henrietta Creasey’s wedding. She was in the first intake of girls into the Junior School in 1985 and left the Senior School in 1992. She was married at St. Peter’s Church, Seaview, on 18th August 2007 to Ken Raynor, a fellow member of the world of radio broadcasting.  The reception was held in the grounds of her childhood home at Puckpool Hill where her father, George Creasey, a staunch supporter of Ryde School, still lives. Not surprisingly, there were a number of Old Rydeians present. In the case of the girls, I will give the surnames they were known by at school: - Two of her bridesmaids were her sister Georgi and Catherine Baksi. Her step-sisters Helen and Liz Napper were there, as were Catherine's twin brother John, Vanessa Walsh, Laura Traves, Sophie and Libby Sellars, Simon Shenton, Darren Griffiths and from earlier years, friends of her father, Roger Peck, Jim Ball, Keith Brading and John Cleaver. Roger, of course, made a significant contribution to the development of the School as a Governor, and Jim worked tirelessly for the Friends for a number of years. Catherine and I did the readings at the service and I was Master of Ceremonies at the subsequent proceedings.  It is interesting to note also that at least one of the church choir was a former member of the staff of the Junior School, and the taxi driver who took my wife and me home at midnight proved to be the mother of one of my former pupils!  In view of the weather and in case the ground was too waterlogged for the marquee and car parking, we had to have a fallback plan and Dr England had very kindly offered us the use of the school theatre for the reception. In the end this was not necessary, but it was a great comfort to know that we had that safety net.”  With kind regards, David Napper (former teacher).
