Well, I can still remember Colette in that dress. Did you walk in it for the walking day? Very pretty. I feel this may be 1967; the last year of the infants.

Good to see you putting pictures on here, Jeff! All the best to you both!!!

I’m not entirely sure but far left in the middle looks like it could be me. I remember mr spencer the head, Mrs halliwell who I thought was quite strict and the gentle mr selery who once took me to Wigan infirmary after dads Vauxhall victor chewed a hole in my leg from a rusty sill. Mr selery had us working on abstract art projects from cardboard tubes and bits of polystyrene - entitled ‘Saturday night by the gas works’ elsewhere on the site I see a comment from Ian leatherbarrow who I remember well.

Only just come across this photograph. Jeff, you haven't said whether you are on the photograph or not, and if you are, which one is you.
At a guess, I would say that you are in the row of boys immediately behind the seated girls and you are the fourth boy from the left.
As you will fully understand, if this photograph was in colour, I would find it much easier to recognise you. :-)
By the way, I hope you are very well and 'Life is Good!'.
