I wasn't in the class, but remember most of the pupils from 1959 at Upholland Grammar School. How time flies!!!

I still have this photo. It was taken with Elaine's new brownie camera. Wasn't it a great class and there were some smashing footballers among the lads. what happened to Tommy Lenegan, Paul Cannell and Ewan Derbyshire and May Shaw when they left LGS?

Hi Vivienne, never knew photo was taken with Elaine's camera.
Happy days - can't believe we've all now turned 60. Where have the years gone?

Good to get your comment Kathleen. I have recently moved from Leicester to Northumberland now that we have retired. Elaine still lives in Kitt Green and we chat sometimes. A reunion of sorts would be nice and I am hoping to meet up with Marjorie Worthington, Sheila Molyneux and Helen Houghton sometime this year when I have got over the house move. Have you seen how the school field has almost gone at Lamberhead Green so that the new school can be built. The infants school has gone. It was handy living in the prefabs when we were at school there. Hate being over 60 and the wrinkles!! Best wishes, Viv

Nice to hear how you are Viv, I'm still working but Hubbys retired from teaching, have lived in Standish all our married life. Trying not to think about being 60, and trying hard to stay `Young at Heart' Would be nice to meet up with everyone sometime. Don't forget me if you organise anything. All the Best, Kathleen.

I to have this photo and last year I left it at the Wigan Observer to be used in their Looking back at Wigan article, but they misplaced the photo! Fortunately I photocopied it first. Two more names missed off - Leonard Goddard on the back row on the left and Paul Cannell sat between Gillian Atty and May Shaw

Comment by: Ian Howarth on 17th December 2011 at 12:12

Oops! Hadn't noticed that the absentees had already been identified- must be old age!

Comment by: Anne Rowley (nee Hooton) on 2nd February 2014 at 17:14

Don't remember this photo or Mr Glover but still remember loads of the names and faces. Lovely to see it, a real blast from the past as I seem to have lost contact with even the people I was friends with at Upholland Grammar. Must be the Lancashire/Yorkshire divide as we left Wigan in 1980 to live on the wrong side of the Pennines!
