I went to Wigan Tech 1950-1953. Very happy memories of those school days. Emigrated to Australia in 1965, but still kept in touch with a few class mates. Enjoyed trips to Wigan Little Theatre with english teacher Dacre Brown. Anyone remember the 1983 reunion ?

Dacre Brown was my Geography teacher at the TLS 1957-62. Never heard any of the pupils have a bad word about him Went of a school trip to Switzerland in 19578 along with another well liked teacher Dennis Pegg. Dacre's wife Margaret nee Fleetwood, is still living in Wigan.
