Ashleigh School - Did you go there?

Recommended Posts

Alright, maybe a little artistic licence...! I met Andrew Wragg on Friends Reunited a few years ago and he'd kept in touch with Phillis for a while along with Chris Kynaston, Jeff Marsden (Marsh Hog), David Armstrong and, I think, Bob Eaton. Anyone else remember John Firth, Stephen Oates, William Ward, David Tofts, Andrew Bellamy, Andew Smith (smiffy), David Needham (Neenee), Russell Senior (not difficult) and Ian Hopkinson?

 

the only name i don't remember from that list is Ian Hopkinson...... the memory fails me on the faces of David Armstrong, David Needham, Andrew Smith.....(it was nearly 30 yrs ago!)...

other (male) names that my memory immediately associates with some of those names are Neville Gough, John Shirt, Barry Sowerby....oh god, it's late! A few other for the pot....... Mark Butler (Spudder), the Andrews Hodgson and Hutchinson, David McKay, Ant(hony Marketing) Hinchcliffe........no, i'm too tired for more. Now I'm wondering who YOU are, chevy!

Did anyone leave in 1979? I remember a couple of names in some of the previous threads - but you know how it is with old age the memory goes a bit!!!!! Along with many other things!!!!

Most of the people in that list left in 1979. Andy Bellamy didn't because he left in '77 to join BRS as a truck fitter. He and I always finished last on the cross country at school! I bumped into him a few years ago and his wife had recently died. Such a nice guy - awful thing to happen. Ian Hopkinson got into HUGE trouble in 2E because he said Donny Osmond was 'crap'. "Do you know what that word MEANS? It means human excrement!!!". He was a member of the Air Cadets and wanted to get into the RAF; he couldn't get in - I think because of his eczema. Anyone remember Julie Hooton, Claire Barrett, Debra Leary (big crush on her!), Julie Bellamy, Julie Crapper and Elaine Jameson?

No, I'm not one of those we've listed....but I did leave in '79!

 

remember nearly all the girls names, some to add, not all left as late as 79 but were in my year .........Andressa (or Undress her, as we used to say, wittily........well, we thought it was witty) Freeston, Karen Smith (not mentioning crushes here!), Elaine Freeman (scared me for 5 years)........... Dawn Haslam, Sharon Parkin, Catherine Crocker...................... stopping for a memory trawl!

I used to be big mates with NeeNee, when I was going out with his mate Tony - havent seen him for many years - but I was probably 2 years below you gang

I remeber going to Muston a few times; the last time was in 75/6 when we went as part of our Art O'level.... I remember having to draw train lines ..... to learn about perspective! And being told that the old place use to be a undertakers cottage and workshop etc, which meant that d we were always scared that some of the old residents were going to come and visit us.

 

Muston Cottage- god that takes me back, Hoss riding, Filey and kipping in those big old wooden bunk beds - oh and the constant threat of being served nettle soup!

Digging in my memory David Culver was in my class ring abell?

 

Ricardo Montici?

 

Timothy Pinda?

 

Robert Seaman?

 

Does anyone remember me for that matter Robert Green (Bobby)?

 

Does anyone have class photos I could get copys from

I will check in again soon.

 

My name is Pierre Barreau. I acted as a French assistant at Asleigh school in 1976- 77. I have kept a wonderfully good memory of the time I spent at Asleigh school. I hate being the bearer of evil tidings but Jack Lambert died of liver cancer in 1995. I got this information from Heather Lambert her widow
