My husband Andrew Smith was the football teams goalkeeper and he has a photograph with all the team on it, winning the football shield.
Kevin Lingard was holding the shield in the middle and Mr.E. Barton was the teacher. We will attempt to scan the photo and add to the link if anyone wishes to see it.

Hi Irene,
Now after seeing your photo I do remember you, in particular as you mentioned:
Dancing at Christ Church
Knowlmere Street
Living in Ormerod Street

The two places mentioned for dancing were also my places.
I also had a friend who lived on Ormerod Street, his Name was John Faulkner. Can you remember him?

Cheers

Philip

Re: Woodnook St Mary's

HI, I know it's been a while since anyone posted anything about Woodnook St Marys but I've only just joined. I was a pupil there from about 1968 - 1972 The Headmaster was Mr Barton, his wife was a chiropodist who had a shop on King Street, my favourite teacher was Mr Whalley, I remember being terrified of Mrs Aspden who used to throw chalk and board dusters. My name was Christine Mckie, I don't remember many people, but here are some, Derek Edge who lived across the street and had a brother Philip I think. Lorraine Taylor who lived up Belfield Rd and passed her eleven plus and went to the girls High School, Christine Marsden who worked in Accrington last time I saw her. There were two other brothers always in trouble haha they went to Hollins High with me. I have really fond memories of my time there but I have no photos at all. If anyone has any I would be very grateful if they could post them. I remember seeing the old photographs of classes from years gone by but don't remember ever having one done of our class. Does anyone know if Mr Whalley is still with us, he was always lovely to me.

Re: Woodnook St Mary's

Wow yes, I remember all those names now, along with Derek and Philip Edge, Lorraine Taylor, Christine Marsden. I was Christine Mckie. I remember a very sad thing, a little girl with long hair who was about 8 when I was 10 who died of Lukeamia. I couldn't read music but I played the recorder ( a plastic one, mum couldn't afford a wooden one) and they used to put sheets up with drawings on off all the covered up notes then I could play. I also remember Mr Bartons dad and granddad I thinks pictures up as they were past Headteachers.

Re: Woodnook St Mary's

Just found this old photo from 1950.
The only people that I can recognise are the following:
Back row, second from the left the late Les Gibson.
Back row, second from the right myself (Philip Kenyon)
Middle row, third from the right Elsie Sutton
Sat down on the left Gordon Whittaker

Maybe someone out there can recognise some more of the then school friends?

Cheers

Just found out from Margaret Pilkington how to load the thumb nail photos.
So let's have another go.
