  • Photo 5 This was taken outside the art room.
    I am the back row one in from the right. I did not have a blazer as my parents could not afford it so always had a jersey, until I attended King John Secondary school when I got a second hand blazer cut down from a girl who had left! I was very proud of it.

  • Hi Denise. long time no see. You were the last young lady from Thundersley that I had contact with the night before I left for Canada and the first woman for me to chat with since I started trying to contact some of the old group. Thank you as you have just brought it full circle for me.

    I am still in Canada and am married with one son and one grandson. I am also retired and spend a lot of time on the Internet trying to track down some of the old group. Eddie and I are now chatting via email and he is updating me on how things have changed and how I have forgotten a lot of people and places.

    Take care of yourself and as I said earlier contact me via email and we will chat further.

  • Hi George and Edward. Hasn’t time gone quickly. I am living in St Osyth near Clacton now. I have 2 sons and 4 grandchildren. I visit Thundersley fairly regularly as my parents are in Thundersley Churchyard. Hope all has gone well with you. I remember the park. Were we there together when the school had the fire?

  • Hi Denise, I remember when we all use to meet over the park.   I see Mary Watson, Philip Muller, Ken Despy, Dave Wall, Alan Ryan, were all in your class. I am in Picture 5 far right second row down, a year older than you.

  • WOW….Denise Souter, nice to see that you are still around and checking out this site. I left my email address above for Eddie and the same applies for you. If you wish to email me we can talk about old times and how life has treated us.

    Take care of yourself and once again nice to know that you are online.

  • Hi Eddie. I was Denise Souter from Hart Road. Moved away 1967 to Clacton. My brother Mick lives in Braintree and my young brother Bryan lives near me now.

  • Hi George I hope you’re keeping well, we had some great times do you remember the electric shock machines. I still see some of our old friends now and again, I saw Jennifer at Christine Muller’s Birthday party. I remember Denise from Hart Rd. and do you mean Christine Mortimer who married Mouse.

    Perhaps we will meet again one day, Eddie

  • In photo 10 I am sure that I am the girl with pin curled hair, 2nd row from the back and 4th from left. I’m slightly puzzled that two of we girls look very tall compared to the others, could be a simple answer to that perhaps. Anne Johnson. My brothers are Richard and David Johnson, I found a picture with Rick but so far haven’t found Dave. Good find though.

    By Annie (21/04/2015)
  • My brother Richard (Rick) is on the far right of the front row, picture 2. Now to find David somewhere, he’s the youngest of we three.
