Thats not Lincoln Banks at the front - it's possibly Sammy Foster.

Small girl on Lois Halsall's right is Rita Lowe. Little girl between Rita and Sheila Connor is Joan Brennan. My minder was Lois. I don't mind if she doesn't.

Cliff H. looks as if he has holes in his pockets.

Comment by: Mary on 27th February 2008 at 21:25

I wish me mam would have washed my knees.

Comment by: Mary on 12th July 2008 at 09:56

Probably just your loose tights Cliff. They didn't make em too well those days.

Comment by: cliff (bloo) on 6th August 2008 at 19:36

Who is Lincoln Banks Ken ? I ner heard of him at ST Georges I knew a Robin Banks who went to St catherines, poor lad he must have had parents with a sense of humour but no feelins for the poor kid.

Comment by: Jenifer G. on 7th August 2008 at 14:24

Nothing to do with Robin Banks. Robin Waggons or Waggin Robins. Lincoln went to St Georges. That may be him at front. Small blond lad playing pocket billiards.

Comment by: Sheila on 8th August 2008 at 08:40

I thought the one with the baggy tights was Cliff?

Comment by: JB on 3rd March 2009 at 13:49

Come on Sheila. Lets have you in the Brocket on St Georges day in April.

Comment by: Albert Baines on 13th November 2009 at 13:05

Clifford Higham, I'm alive and kicking do you still need a minder!!

Comment by: Albert Baines on 13th November 2009 at 13:09

The girl next to Sheila Connah is Margaret Collier

Comment by: R. Parr on 20th December 2009 at 14:03

Al your mate Cliff looks like he needs a minder. I saw him in the Brocket the other afternoon. Looked like he was doing the crosswaord in the paper. Then nipping out in the freezing cold - poor chap - for a roll up. Go and see him.

Comment by: Freddie on 2nd January 2010 at 20:53

I wonder what happened to Joe Fairhurst?, I have never seen him comment on any of the school photos.
I heard someone said he is a Keep Fit fanatic, lies to swim 1,000 lengths in the swmming pool somewhere but has regular ailments, thats what keeping fit does for you.
anyway he wasalways a rm bugger at school.

Comment by: JB on 9th January 2010 at 15:50

I think Joe Barker as asking about Freddy, Cliff!

Comment by: BILLYO on 7th August 2012 at 20:19

I spent two years sat next to Albert Baines at All Saints is he still around

Comment by: Irene on 12th August 2012 at 00:01

Cliff is telling porkies. He doesn't live in Ince, he lives in Gidlow Lane. I often see him going to Bargain Booze or Tescos.

Comment by: Freddy, on 21st October 2015 at 16:28

Does anyone know if Sammy Foster and Albert Baines are still around.
