I visited Wigan a few years ago and when I saw that wonderful school gone, I painted a picture from a photo I took back in the80s, and gave it angel's wings.:-(

I went to this school from 1979 to 1981 and can remenber Mr ball and young mrs Davis, she had a refreshing way of teaching and would sometimes take the class out. Fond memories of my childhood days.
