Can't help with any more names but Maeve Kennedy used to live near to the bottom of our street, she was a Doctors daughter.
A really nice well mannered girl which is probably due to her upbringing and education.
Haven't seen her since we were both about 15, you wouldn't have her E Mail address would you?

Ruth Bowker is my mother, she is a retired teacher who has become a successful artist/ printmaker now living near Whistable in Kent. Check out her website

Does anyone remember the year the juniors were transfered from the "big" school down in town to the Hollies. I can remember it very well as it meant an extra bus ride from Wigan Central railway station (remember that anyone?) out to the Hollies.
