Memory's a bit sketchy after 40 years but here's who I think they all are....

Back row, (l to r): John Mulligan, David Heyes, Can't remember, Stephen Owens, Joe Smith, Ron Naylor, David Smith

Next to back row: Joe Wallace, David Riley, Alan Heaton, ?, ?, John Moore, Tony Hankin, Peter Lacey, David Clapham, Paul McCormick.

Next to front row: Geoffrey Taylor, Peter Young, Alan Orrell, ?, ?, Kevin Edwards, John Knowles, Paul Bagshaw (Teacher)

Front row: Chris Boyle, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?

Apologies to those whose names escape me after all these years - and possibly to those whose names I've got wrong! Someone must know who they are???? (I am Second row, second from left, now sadly with rather less hair!)

It was sad news when I heard that, earlier this year, the teacher Mr Bagshaw died. I saw him as one of the good teachers.You might have seen some of his publications and videos he produced in his later years including the "vox pop"video of former pupils - with plenty of marvellous anecdotes about life at the school in the 1960's.

Very sad the death of Paul Bagshaw.I was at his funeral,he was a very nice man and made my early days at John Rigby very good.

I recently watched again the video produced by Paul Bagshaw of the Grammar School in the 1960's. One of the stars in that production of 2002 was a very distinguished looking Jack Knowles!
