I can still spot you Granville, second from right. Hope you're keeping well. All the best for the New Year. Are you still wearing odd shoes when you turn out ?

Hi Granville

Thanks for the photo, it brought back some great memories. Anyone remember the boarding school we stayed in? I can recall slipping out in the evening to buy beer and wine. Years later when I worked at Rose Bridge School, Mr Wardle asked me how we managed to get the goods - a fire exit behind my wardrobe and bed.

Best wishes to all.
David

David when you worked at rose bridge was there a teacher by the the name of mr bithel he encouraged me to draw and paint when he was a teacher at Spring view school during the 1960s a hobby I still do today,he was an excellent teacher always wondered what happened to him ,he would have been at rose bridge from the early 1970s onwards .

Hi Theresa thank you for replying ,yes it was Bill bithel tried to find out about mr bithel and other teachers at a re Union about three to four years ago and someone did say he had not long passed away sadly he must have been a good age , I always thought he lived in hindley ,didn't know he had a brother or if he was ever married ,about four years ago a friend of mine said a mr bithel that lived in sheltered accomadation in higher once had just passed away at 89 but we couldn't be sure if that was him or not .would appreciate anymore information about him Theresa so I can pass it on to my school colleagues at our next reunion ,thank you .

Hi Sam im not sure what you would like to know,if I can help I will .Bill wasn't in his eightys when he died possibly late seventh ?.he never lived in hindley.they lived at the side of the crispin pub on birket bank.they where very good neighbours do anything for anyone all ways there to help.I felt quite sad this week when John left.they belong to st Catherine's in scholefield lane .moved to whelley in 1978, that's when I moved next door to them .

Theresa ,thank you so much for the information you have given me i now can tell my old school about him now , he was a excellent artist himself,he kept a painting i did in my last year at school. I like to draw and paint more now that I'm retired ,I think of him every time I pick a pencil or a paintbrush up he taught me a lot when he teached at Spring view school ,think he finished his teaching at rose bridge school.maybe you can visit his brother John in his new home Theresa.thankyou again for your help Theresa God bless you ,Sam .
