Laugh or cry , depending how the day is going .

The Richmond Road area of the old school now has bungalows .

The old infant school is now a community centre , and as you say there are plans for a play area , and for a car park for the centre .

Re: new springhill school

Are there any photos of the old school around?
There is a line drawing on the school's website but although similar, it doesn't look like the school as I remember it.
