Great picture but is there any chance of getting it any clearer? If you are around 52 now, you could be on here.I do not remember this picture but I can see myself on it. I know who will probably be on here, only a few I can recognise but the list of maybe's are, Jean Turner, Ann Edwards, Sandra Fields, Pat Winstanley, Wendy Worthington, Eileen Almond, Susan Tittler, Carol Unsworth, Margaret Birchall,June Taylor,Jocelyn Hibbert, Janet Ilsley, Ann Meadows, Maurice Nott, Malcom Dickenson, John Chatterley, Royce Banks, Robert Higham, Neil Thomson, John Goulding, Kenneth Blakely, Ian Bithell, Alan Fairclough. Anymore names please? I think the head teacher was Mr. Rudd and I've forgotten our form teachers name.

Brilliant. I would love to see it in its original condition. I have told Angela to take a look, the only one I see in her place of work. Wendy's been on about a re-union, that would be great.
