Thanks for posting this photo Fred, brings about some good memories of that time. I do remember you and all the other lads in the photo, though I had left by then my last year there was 1967-1968.

Comments by Phil Yates, 19th December 2009  
Amazing thing is that Keith Gibson is decorating my living room as I write this, How about a bit of a reunion ( In a pub of course!! )with all the ex PBS lads from 68, let me know what you think

Comments by Fred, 23rd December 2009  
Phil i would be up for a reunion, come on lads.

Comments by Phil Yates, 24th September 2010  
I know it's been nearly a year since I posted the reunion call but I have been quite busy at work. I'm now a retired chap so I could arrange a get together ( maybe Pemberton area ? ) If you could get word around and let me know by e-mail or phone ( 01257 473136 ) we could probably arrange a venue and date that suits all.

Regards Phil
