Next to Josie Whalley Audrey Seddon, Kathleen Wolstenholme the Kathleen ? is Kathleen Major. Next to Marleen Heaton is Carole Walker, then Kathleen Swift. Bob Corner died just before Christmas. Adrian and I went to the funeral at Charnock Richard.

Dorothy Pyett ( now Townshend) is 5th from the right middle row. Went on to be first girl to go to Oxford University from Hindley Grammar. She was my mother Mabel Chambers nee Lee's cousin

I was in lower 5C from 1949-1955 great class.We gave Joey Corner the nick name of "Joey" which the whole school adopted. Sorry to hear about his death.More comments appreciated if anyone was in Lower 5C from those dates

No not Dorothy Pyett. She was ahead of us. Thats Margaret Ridimg. But yes Dorothy was the first to go to Oxford for History I think.

Sorry to learn of the death of Mr. Robert (Bob) Corner affectionately known as 'Joey'. He was a great teacher with fundamental humanitarian qualities 'one of the best'.I was a pupil at the School from about 1952 - 1958 and was privileged to have been taught by him.

I'm sitting on Joey's right....Susan Williams that was...wonderful to find this photo, Pat. Eileen Turner is next to me...sadly she died a few years ago. I'm still working (as a psychotherapist) at 76 after a long career in journalism. I'd love to hear from any of you about your lives to date.
