I was at Gleadless Middle till 75 and Ashleigh till 81 (including 2 year in the 6th form.


That list of names brings back a lot of memories and most of those I had long since forgotten. You have a far better memory than me. 


You (Paul) must have left Gleadless in 75 as I know all of the names you mention. I was at the match (Utd) with Paul Moss a couple of weeks back, and had some drinks with Mick Newton earlier this month. Got a Xmas card just this morning from Kev Beckwith and swapped texts with Steve Bunting a few weeks back. 


The last time I saw anyone as a crowd was back in 97 at the New Inn at the bottom of Gleadless Common for a 6th form reunion.
