Hi Shirley, What a great photo, I am on this I did my first year at the old school and then moved on to the new one on warrington rd. So nice to see this photo especially as the old school isn't there any more, thanks for sharing
Thanks Kath, Whereabouts on the photo are you? I am on part 3 second row from the back, the last girl on the row before the boys start. Joyce Collier is in front of me, don't know if you know her, she lived on Poplar Ave and I lived in Cedar Grove. Good to hear from you.
Hi Shirley, Just found you on the other photo. I am sitting, front row, 10th from the right and yes I do remember Joyce and also her younger sister, Joan. In fact Joan, myself, and your sister June knocked around together for a while, and my sister Glenda's first love was your step-brother Dave! Ask him if his bread van that he drove the group that she sang with around in was reg no. GJP770. She reckons it was!! What a memory, I told her it must have been love! LOL
Can anyone tell me if Christine Nichols is on this photo? she wore glasses and had red hair, she lived in the Blackbrook area, she might be 3rd row down 10th from the right. She had a friend who might be on here too called Francine. Christine's parents had the chip shop on Riding Lane estate.
The girl you describe I remember as Christine MacDonald. Her friend was Francine Garner. Looking at the original photo, Christine is 9th from the right and Francine 11th.
We mean the same person Frank, 10th from the left, 9th from the right, but I wouldn't have picked Francine. Christine and I had a crush on each other for a while in those days, but I went to the Central school, unheard of eh? You wouldn't know where she is these days would you?
Thanks for that
I should haved called you Roger..... sorry Frank
Great to see this photo on Wigan World.Kathryn, we were in 3A, Room 6.Miss Packard was our Form Teacher.Happy Days.
I've found out Christine Macdonald now lives on the Gold Coast in Queensland, I emailed her from Friends Reunited but she hasn't replied.
If any of you girls on here are in contact with her, please ask her to write, a quick hello never hurt anyone.
Also Francine Garner.
Thank you so much
