Old Edwardians

1980-1989

Sally Bradley – Class of 1981

I retired from the NHS last year and I am working as Director of Clinical Services at Fremantle Hospital. The hospital overlooks the Indian Ocean and I am at last able to swim outdoors in the warm before work!


Sara Hayward - Class of 1982

At the beginning of the year, I held an exhibition at Winterbourne House & Garden called "Winterbourne Revisited". It was a collection of work I produced during my time as artist in residence in 2013, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The exhibition featured portraits of the Nettlefold family, a series of large scale abstracts loosely inspired by the garden, and a short film, “Remembrance of Things Passed”, recreating the life of an Edwardian English family and the several secrets they held; relying on dreams and memories. It features my daughter Sylvie. The film was a collaboration between myself and Indian film maker Parul Punjabi and can now be seen on YouTube. Winterbourne was a tremendous backdrop and we managed to film on just about the only dry day last June! I’m planning to show the large abstract paintings in Worcester Cathedral during the summer holidays.

 

Heide GoodyHeide Goody (née Lyon) – Class of 1983

I went from A Levels at Nuneaton College into a career in IT. Since then I married Simon and have had three children: Sarah, Rachael and Angus. I own a publisher called Pigeon Park Press with my business partner. We started it up in order to publish our co-written novels. We're proud to have steered ten talented writers through an innovative project called "Ten To One" where they co-wrote a novel, in a "knockout" style where one writer was voted off the cast at the end of each round. The novel will be launched at the Library of Birmingham in the autumn as part of their "Voices" season.
