If you are visiting Montebello and pass by the Bonsecours village hall, you will note that the two huts, OTTER and MINK, have wire around them and are in a state of disrepair. They are both about to be repaired to their pristine condition and Luc Beauchamp, Sedbergh's neighbour from the Back Valley will do the work.
The rest of the memorabilia is moving forward and should be online on the Societe Historique's website this summer. I shall advise you when it is up.
Please don't forget that if you visit the Valley and wish to go up to the Lake, contact me so that I can ask the owner for his permission. It is private property now. He is very happy to say "Yes" but it is the polite thing to do.
Dear Old Sedberghians,
More than a decade ago, Sedbergh permanently closed its doors, and since that time the memorabilia and school artifacts have waited quietly in Andy Convery's workshop near Montebello. I have examined a number of plans to find a permanent home for the material, including an offer by the Chateau Montebello and one by the Bonsecours Village Hall but these have fallen by the wayside for various reasons, so it has become increasingly urgent that a home be found for the memorabilia.
Here is a very interesting idea from Rob Carreau, now Head of School at Rosseau Lake College. Rob was a student at Sedbergh during the 1990's and returned for a Gap year after he graduated. Those of you with school-age children may well be interested in his plans.
Robert Carreau here, Sedbergh class of '94. I am writing from Rosseau Lake College, having somehow ended up in a job where, as Head of a small school, I can enjoy all the triumphs and challenges that Mr. Tommy and Mr. Hossack must have experienced during my time as a student in the Valley.
