Welcome back


Old Ruymian Cricket 2023

Many congratulations to the self-formed Old Ruymians Cricket Committee on organising an early T20 match against the Chatham and Clarendon 1st X1 at 3pm on Wednesday 26th April and a full set of fixtures for the Cricket Week 14th to 18th August 2023. David Carr has taken a number of photos as these events.

Some photos from the cricket week can be found here.

We thank all our current members for their continuing support and subscriptions.

As ever there is an appeal for members of the club to step forward to join the committee, we look forward to welcoming new faces and ideas.

Our History

Chatham House school started life as the Humble School founded in 1797 by Dr Humble. Clarendon House was founded in 1905 and was situated on the first floor of Ramsgate police station, presumably to keep the 50 young ladies in the care of the Merriman sisters safe from the gentlemen of Chatham House.
