How lovely to be reminded of the students I went to school with.Of course I remember Brenda Berry who went to Hindley grammar school and who was in my primary class from1943-1950 when we both passed the 11 plus.What a coincidence Majorier I now line in a small village near Valencia in Spain having been an inspector of examinations for Cambridge Exam Board. Have had a super career .All due to the good education at primary and secondary level.Keep in touch.

I wonder if Brenda remembers my first husband, who went to Hindley grammar School? His name is Raymond Howarth. He had a head of blonde curls!!!We were married in 1960 until 1989 after which I married my present husband Barry from Ely.Ray and I had 2 daughters. No children with Barry but he has a son. Brenda had a friend ---- Wilford? There are photos of them both together in one of the Walking day photos.

So pleased to hear from you Jean via Brenda Would love you to get in touch via my e mail so that we can enjoy a few reminisces I hadn't realised you had responded until I saw Brenda this evening . I started my working life in the Bank and eventually went to college and spent twenty years teaching English in a further ed college in Liverpool. I would like to think that a few more who are on that photo might respond .the only one that I ever came across from that photo was Doreen Sudworth We were both very pregnant and met each other in Owen Owen's in Liverpool .A long time ago !!

I worked with a girl named Doreen Bond who went to Ashton Grammar in the early 50s.Does anyone know anything about her? Unfortunately we lost contact when I emigrated to Australia in 1966. I'd love to re-connect with her.
