David Savage (Broadlands - 1947 to 1952)

David Savage was a pupil at Broadlands Prep School from 1947 to 1952. He had great respect for Jack Le Grice, the School's Headmaster, and enjoyed the five years at the School, which had close connections with Churcher’s College where his father and uncle were educated in the 1920s. After graduation, David qualified as a Solicitor working in the Farnborough area. He was a man with many interests, serving as a Councillor for 16 years; as well as having stood for Parliament as a Conservative Candidate in the General Elections in 1974 and 1979.

All his life he kept in touch with Churcher's, and as a member of the 1722 Society, he left a legacy to the College. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth and his two sons, both of whom are medical practitioners.

David retained such wonderful and happy memories of those years in Petersfield. He would regularly mention walking “in crocodile file” to Street Church, following behind the Churcher’s contingent led by Mr. Schofield, and The Broadland contingent was led by Jack Le Grice or ‘Sarge’. In particular he would recall how cricket tuition from Jack Le Grice was an education and a pleasure.
