Did Janet Lawrenson's mum have a shop across the road from Clifton Mills.
Mr. Smith had to be the best teacher ever. I remember reading "The Owl and The Pussycat", The Jackdaw of Rheims" and loads of other things. We made a Motte and Bailey Castle too and 3 of us had to go out and dig up some clay to make it. We bought some fireworks and then went over to the brook that runs alongside Wigan Rovers Football ground to "blow up" some clay. Poolstock School was brilliant in those days, late 40s and early 50s. I loved every minute of it.
Just spotted me (fourth from left at the front) my sister Carole is sat in front of me GREAT PHOTO!!!
Hasn't time slipped by so quickly since we left. Mr Smith was an ace teacher as was Mrs Parkinson! Do you any of you fancy getting together for a reunion??? - Don't quite know how we'd get it together, anyone any thoughts?
We should organise a re-union now where all over 50,this photo is nearly 40yrs old.I could contact possibly 15 on the photo if anyones interested.
Stuart, i'm up for it. Drop me an email with a contact number and I'll give you a call.
Glen, I've sent you an email asking you to get back to me with a tel no. I'll call you and we can get cracking with a reunion. Stuart will you get in touch too?
I am back online and have e-mailed you my landline number. Looking forward to meeting up soon.
Just had a look at the photo, I am back row and fourth from the end. I would also be up for a reunion.

Right chaps, lets try to get the show on the road regarding a reunion, if you fancy meeting? - email me your tel no's and i'll get the ball rolling.
do any of you fancy a reunion?
It's lovely to see the photo's of Mr. Smith, my Great Uncle Jim.He was a wonderful man,I would like to share something with his ex pupils. After teaching all week, he and his wife looked after me every weekend from when I was born in 1962.If it wasn't for their love and kindness I would of most probably been sent for adoption. I sometimes went to Poolstock school with him in the 60's.
Yes Joanne he was a nice man,i was in his class in 1969 he used to take us for rounders in the playground. He also took us over the canal bank where we had to draw the old cooling towers,seem to remember he was quite arty.
Is anyone still in contact with Janet Lawrenson? I happen to notice someone mentioned her Mother may have had a shop opposite Clifton Mills. Do you happen to remember? The family once lived at 22 Tipping Street
we've talked about having a reunion, do any of you want to meet up?
Janet Lawrenson lived in the end house in Hardman St she lives off Howden Drive now.Think her aunty Ivy lived in Tipping St.
