Let's Play The Game
I am the daughter of Henry B. Evington and Lily Hall Evington. I was born in the main house of Hardenwick in 1921. I loved Hardenwick. I remember so many great things about The Boys, and the School classrooms and grounds and cricket and teas at the Fathers’ Match Day (with the marquee on the lawn). I remember the names Monk and Anwar, Wardill, and Robin Thomas. Robin Thomas was killed in the RAF during the Second World War.
I live now in the U.S. because I married an American Captain from St. Louis who I met during the War. Both my sons, John and Christopher, spent many summer terms visiting (attending) Hardenwick and learned to play cricket.
I went to Hardenwick and was the only girl in the school. I am the girl in white seated at my mother’s feet in the 1929 picture (on this site). I visited Miss Sibley several times. Later I went to St. Hilda’s Girls School in Harpenden. “Let’s Play The Game” has always been my motto.
Regards to all The Old Boys, Diana Evington Kurth
