A three-hour boat trip round the lake in the adjacent Game-Park revealed elephant, buffalo, gaur, many kinds of deer and a hunting pack of wild dogs, but we have yet to see a leopard or a tiger in the wild. Down in the Backwaters at Katayam (pictured left) was the place to chill-out watching the bird and water life on the river whilst sitting in the shade in our Homestay garden under exotic fruit trees with which we were fed by the house-keeper. That's our India!! Tommy Tucker Welcoming Dr Richard Robson ‘I can’t wait to be part of the Woodbridge family’ – so said Dr Richard Robson on being appointed as the new Headmaster of Woodbridge School last autumn. True to his word, he is now getting to know the church family at St Mary’s, where he is a regular worshipper. A former actor who trained at Bristol Old Vic, Dr Robson has a first degree in Drama and Theatre Studies and an MA in English (his teaching subject is English). He went on to train as a teacher and to gain a doctorate in Education. Clearly a man of many parts, Dr Robson’s enthusiasm for the performing arts continues, but he is also an accomplished musician and a keen sportsman. Dr Robson is married to Emma, and they have two children, Joshua and Olivia, who are pupils at Woodbridge School. Welcome all!
