I went to Woodnook secondary School too...must've been around the same time, because I have just reached that magical age too....but I was not clever enought to attain the standard of the A stream.....I was a lowly B.

Re: Woodnook Secondary Modern

Hi Mick, I know your name and I'm pretty sure I can put a face to it; I went to Woodnook around the same time I think '53-'54 for 4 years,A stream as someone else mentioned (not that means anything) all I know Mick is that I enjoyed every day going to that school and being around some great kids and teachers. Do you remember Mr Milton Suthers, Mr Hill, Miss Tattersall, Mrs Thompson? and classmates Harry Woods , David Keeley, Stuart Garside, Anne Eccles, Margeret Tripp,Peter Cockburn etc; Do you have any old school pictures????? I moved to Canada when I was 21 and now living in Hawkesbury (about an Hour east of Ottawa) Ontario. My wife Marie and I live on a farm and operate a Bed & Breakfast and Antique shop on site. Check us out at WWW. CranberryHouse.ca
Mick it's been great chatting with you,and hope to hear that everything is great in your world.................

I remember you Alfie ... the lovely red haired lad with the nice muscles ....

Not through Woodnook, but St. Augustine's Youth Club.

Good to hear what happened to you, and what a lovely place you have there out in Canada !

Knew four of the people you mentioned above. Stuart Garside and Margaret Tripp went to Peel Park didn't they. Harry Woods died too young I'm afraid and David Keeley (didn't know him that well) who worked at English Electric. My lifelong friend, who now lives in Spain, knew him better, and her husband, Colin Yates was in your year.

Happy reminiscing !

Re: Woodnook Secondary Modern

Hi Kate: What a nice thing to say about someone....yes, I still blush even at my age. My apologies Kate, I'm not to sure who you are at this point but I have an idea who you may be. You mentioned St Augustines youth club,sure brings back some fond memories of our youth, a very special time in our lives before the world went nuts. Sorry to hear Harry Woods died,what a nice guy, he played lead guitar in our skiffle group at school,there were (3) of us with guitars but only Harry knew what he was doing. I guess I had better sign off before the PC police get after me for rambling on. Thanks for the trip down memory lane Kate,please say hello to Colin Yates for me and hope life has been good to you. God Bless............ JH.

Re: Woodnook Secondary Modern

Hi Kate; Sorry for the delay ( Alligators). Got your E mail but couldn't open up the photos for some reason. So, were you the leading lady in Sinbad opposite John Oxford ?Ronnie Entwistle and I didn't see to much of that evening we were the Elephant. (Guess wich part/end I was). I thought I knew pretty well everyone at the youth club in those days Kate,but I'm still having a brain cramp putting a face to you.( Must be all those Vimtos I drank as a kid).....................JH.

Good to know my face is forgettable .... LOL. No wonder you are not on that pantomime picture Alfie ... Kath Smith is sat on the back end of the elephant.
Will start another thread on St. Augustines Youth Club once I can get some photos scanned ... don't wish to get pulled up for digression. Carry on Woodnookers.

By the way, remember you MickP ... one of those people you don't really know ..just hung around the dance clubs when I did ..right little Teddy Boy you were ...
