Thanks for this photo. This was my first and only school,before I started to work at Horwich Loco.
We had an Harold Seddon in our class at school. Would he be one of your relatives?

Ken R, no I don't think Harold is a relative. I think I may have been there a bit later than you.

I remember Mrs Harrison as well. She retired while i was there i guess around 1977. I think she went to cornwall. I remember saying good bye to her in the middle classroom.

I started at the school in about 1941 I too remember. Mrs Harrison and her 2 daughters, they lived in School Close in the first house, I have a lot of happy memories.
