Christine:

I assume you mean a school play at Hartley Brook ? Yes I loved to be in the plays, as I recall they were managed mostly by Mr. Inman ?
Which Christine are you ? The play I remember most at HB was one called "The man in the Bowler Hat." John Rawson played that man, and he came on at the beginning, in a Bowler, never moved and stayed on stage until the end ! All the kids were asking "What was he doing there?"

This is for GAZ 786. I lived at 28 Brinsworth St. for a while, the house was owned by Mr. Mrs. Elliot, such nice people. My mother and step dad rented part of the house. The Elliots had two grandchildren as I recall, Janet and Tony. I especially remember Janet as she was so attractive

yes I remember most of the plays, I used to like participating. Which Christine were you ? I remember three Christines at school ! The play I remember most was the "Man in the Bowler Hat." Mr. Inman used to manage most of them as I recall

Christine Almond... I lived on Bodmin Street next door to Nancy Wright who fancied the pants off you. Mr Inman was my form teacher for last year at Hartley Brooke. Brilliant man. The play ran for 3 nights and earned a small mention in the Star. Listing all characters and actors. .still got the clipping. .... do you remember ' Tosh ' Hampton , Tony ? He died long time ago... that came as quite a shock as did Terry Morgan. Yes he moved to Tinsley as someone else mentioned. We used to see him and his wife in the club and pubs.

Hello Christine:

I do remember you and the play but not a lot of detail, but I do remember the Star clipping. We should all have gone to Hollywood ! I'm sorry I guessed at the wrong Christine, that was such a popular girls name then
I remember you being in the same yard as Ann and Nancy Wright, and many others on Bodmin St, like Geoff Cooper, Paul Howe, Joe O'brien, Josie Parkin, Albert Ensman, and then myself, Roger Hole, Edwina Hill and Dennis Green were at the Britnall St end. Most of these people went to HB. Do you remember Mike Ashworth from Bodmin St ? I saw him and his wife, Sandra Stevens, two years ago at a reunion at the Liberal Club, as well as Pat Pickering and Jane McCormick, both HB. They usually hold the reunion in November, for Attercliffe and Brightside people but anyone from around the area.

Were you in the year behind me or two years behind ? The old school held great memories for me, although I wasn't the best behaved pupil, Pop Allen caned me twice and I got four each time. Can 't remember what it was for now, but I am sure I deserved it.
So what happened to Nancy? I know she married Paul Francis from Francis St. Where was Tony Hampton from ?

You can get me on my email glennepickard@hotmail.com and then we can exchange stories. I was in Sheffield last month, did a tour of the 'Cliff and there are some new (10-12 years old )houses built where Bodmin and Britnall St. used to be
