Far-left in green pullover is Peter Lechmere; next to him, partially hidden is The Late Stephen Hunt who died young; cross-legged in front wearing sunglasses is The Late Stephen Humphreys; the 5 lads standing to the right of the school badge are: Holmes?, Peter Brown, Barry Abernethy, Paul Richardson and Stephen Sellers.

In the mid 60s, when it was 'All Saint's' a group of us went on a school trip to Belmont reservoir. We walked it, straight over the top of Rivington. No bus for us in those days.

Seems like only yesterday, I am seated cross-legged next to Stephen Humphreys, great days. Do you have any other photos of these trips.

Remember that bus so well. A fishing trip early 1973. Anyone else?

Sorry Stephen,no. I know you were good pals with Stey Humphries. He was very popular and very funny;it was sad how it all ended for him. Also sad for Stephen Hunt who I believe died of cancer in the early 80's; I remember reading it in The Wigan Observer; he was a shy lad who didn't have a bad atom in his body.

Amendment: The lad fourth from the right on the back-row isn't Peter Brown, it's Peter Wood. Sorry.

I remember that trip well. Also on the trip was Colin Smith who also died quite young, we were in the police together.
Can't say as i recognise the girls in the photo.
