Brian Gregory arrived at Goldings on the 17th April 1953 when
arriving at Goldings Brian was reunited with his former friend
from Much Wenlock Henry Peet, who also arrived that same day.
Brian was a cabinet maker and served in the Cadets.
Brian and Henry are still firm friends to this day despite living
either end of the country, and have attended reunions together
in the past.
It was at my first reunion that I first met Brian and his wife
with Henry.

When he left Goldings his first job was an antiques restorer.

Just look at the skill achieved by a boy of 14-15
years under the wonderful training given to us by
such dedicated Tutors.

The Table Lamp is interesting as a lot of us (I was also a Carpenter) would make
one of these in some stage of our tuition. Various pieces of wood were glued
together then turned on the lathe to give this Interesting pattern for a Table Lamp.
