 School Gets Defibrillator

Last summer under the Banner of The Forum For The Built Environment East Anglia Branch a group of 7 undertook a cycling challenge – they cycled from London to Brussels, a distance of 340 miles in total over a period of 3 and a half days.   The group were: Julian Harvey (Gill Associates), Peter Blake (Prettys), James Wilson (Carters Ipswich), Colin Clements (Inviron), Darren Webb (Mixbrow Construction), Mark Caines (Ipswich Hospital) and Dale Banham (Northgate High School).

The aim of the challenge was to raise money to buy defibrillators to be donated to non-profit making community buildings/centres.

 Year 13 student, Katherine Rednall, is a World Champion

There is a new star on the world bowls scene – Stowmarket High School’s very own Katherine Rednall.  Having crushed former champion Alison Merrien in the Just Retirement Ladies Indoor World Matchplay Singles semi-finals Katherine Rednall delighted the legion of VI Formers at Stowmarket High School watching the final live on Thursday afternoon.  Katherine is now the youngest ever Ladies World Matchplay Singles champion.  In a thrilling game Katherine overcame Rebecca Field to win the event in 2 sets, 14-4, 11-3.

Katherine was cool, calm and brilliant all through the match.  In the first set she went from 4 - 4  to 12 – 4 which effectively finished off the first set for her.  Katherine won 13 ends to 5 and scored 25 – 7 with her shots – a remarkable score for a final. Katherine was awarded a beautiful Langham Glass trophy by Andy Humphries, Director of Marketing for Just Retirement and Brain Potter MBE, Chairman and proprietor of Potters resort.

“It’s amazing, and it hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Rednall, whose dad John, mum Christine and gran Gwenda were cheering her on.

“I looked at the score in the second set and I knew if I kept getting singles I would be OK, but then I realised I had put two bowls on and it was a bit of a surprise.

“I have had so much support from everyone, ringing me, texting me and sending me good luck messages. It’s been lovely.”

From all of us at Stowmarket High School well done Katherine, we are hugely proud of your achievement and victory.  We honour and salute the 2014 Ladies Indoor World Matchplay Singles champion.
