I should know everyone really as it was my class and they all look so familiar, but I have probably got them all wrong!
Back row 4th from the left is me, with dark V neck. Four boys along is Bernard Hoofe (cousin) and I think the boy next to him is ? Cumberbirch, then one of the Appletons.
Next to top row 2nd boy from left Martin(?) Pickup next to Paul Scott(?), then Alan Dorricott, next one looks like Gary Parkinson next to Jimmy Lloyd, then Trevor Gurhy and Billy(?).
3rd row down from left, 2nd boy Paul Kelly on the right of that row is another Paul Kelly (who emigrated to Canada) standing next to Anthony Moore.
Front row from the left I think the first girl is Denise Toughey.
Most of the group ended up at Cardinal Newman.

Remember so many of these names and faces Kev Ap next to Bernard and so many good times growing up with some of these good catholic boys as Swifty would say,I bumped into Swifty in Pemps many years ago hadn't seen him for 15 yrs and it was just like we were still at school 10 yrs old maybe that says a lot but many great memories. Joe Rynn still drinks in the Bowling Green on Wigan Lane and looks as fit as a fiddle. Thanks Anne for putting these on pitty I was wagging it and birds nesting the day the picture was taken.Sorry you turned out a Red Swifty other than that your a splendid lad.

There are at least three separate year ‘groups’ in the picture. I’m three to the right from Kevin. Ant Moore, Trevor Gurhy, Christine Gurhy, Lynne Scally, Paul Carey were in the same year as me. Jimmy Lloyd, Gary Parkinson were a year above and Kevin, Bernard Hoofe, Rob Moore, Steve Parkinson were the two years above. Rob - I remember Mrs Moore working at the school. Thanks for the memories…
