Looking For Friends Who Went To Myers Grove In The 70's

Recommended Posts

Hello Mark

 

Thanks for your message. I remember your name but I remember you were not in my form and we must have been there in the sixth form.

 

I recognise some of the names you have sent and they must all be folks on the L6 photo on the "Friends Reunited" site. You might be able to locate them better than me.

 

Keith Purshouse I remember was Paul McMullen's cheery mate. When we were in the 5th Year Paul was in goal and I chased a ball and collided with him and my front teeth have never been the same since!

 

I am sorry Roger Travis has passed on. He was one from Wisewood who joined us in the sixth form and I was quite friendly with him. I think he gave up though before the A levels which was disappointing at the time.

 

Stephen Foster I think is standing next to me in the photo. I seem to remember he was a real Romeo - hope he didn't break too many hearts!!

 

If we get any more replies I will try and contact Chris Parrott and see if anybody want to meet up somewhere in Stannington next Spring. Some of us must be retired. I am sort of retired I had short (not great) career as a science teacher and I worked in Social Services till 2007 when I decided to go back to teaching after the support service I worked for was "remodelled"!

 

The new school does not seem to be doing too well. I have read their Ofsted report and I think perhaps a team of retired Old Grovians who are now great or lesser oaks might volunteer to be one-to-one tutors in the school for Maths or English for ever more.

 

Best wishes

 

Alex.

Keith Pursehouse and I remained close friends up to me leaving Sheffield in 1986 - in fact he was best man at my wedding - he was/is a director at a tiling company based in Rotherham, but he still lives in Stannington

 

Paul McMullen is now in Doncaster, doing something very clever in science at the hospital.

 

Sadly Roger Travis passed away on Xmas Eve 2014 - he was landlord of a pub in Tickhill

 

Stephen Foster ended up being a Chief Inspector in Avon and Somerset Police Force - its been some time since I was in contact but guess he will have retired now

I was at Myers from 1972 to 1977.

My sister was in Mr Wardle's year. I was in Mr Burgin's year (if that's how you spell it). My Brother was 2 years below me and my nephew also went to myers some years later. The teachers were strict but they probably had to be. I left Myers with nowt as soon as I got work - big mistake -it has taken me the next 30 years to catch up.

I do remeber Mr Rhodes, as I once went to a christian action camp at Cliff College with him and several others. Anyone else remeber the trip? Does anyone remeber "Touche"? I can never remember his real name; he was a maths teacher and taught fencing. I went on a summer camp to Buttermere in the lakes when I was about 12 or 13 and Mr Snell was one of the teachers that took us. I came home covered in midge bites but had a good time. Anyone else remember being on the same camp?

Hi

I was on the buttermere camp , remember having to do the roll out of the canoe in freezing cold water before we could go out on the lake ,we traveled up there in a old van ,I learnt all the words to life on mars on the way,we all slept in tents and took turns at the cooking

I left in '78- remember Mr Sibury, (Sibery?- never was sure), and Mrs Hippsly. They'd remember me cos I was usually late! Only lived 5 minutes away......

I dont remember a moped but I do remember he had an Allegro estate?:hihi:

I remember the moped- and one of the teachers had one of those Citroen 2CV things - we used to rock it to see if it would tip over....
