To Mrs Barnes, the Masters and the students of Glenwood High School,
On behalf of my Father Cecil Ritson, I want to say a very sincere Thank You to you all for taking time out of your busy schedule and coming to visit Dad this afternoon. He was so touched and so were Dave and myself by this wonderful gesture.
But what an honour, naming a Boardroom after him and his brothers. This is an amazing gesture and deeply appreciated by us all.
Thank you too for the gifts of the Cap and the Rugby Jersey, signed by all the members of the 1st Team. We shall have to frame it. But the Cap is still on Dad’s head!! And for the books on the school history and for going to the trouble of looking up the relevant references to my Dad.
Once again please accept our grateful thanks for making Dad so very happy. What a fantastic school, that you are encouraging the boys to remember tradition. It was wonderful to meet you all.
Heather (Cecil Ritson’s daughter)
