Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (Part 2)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, found this Forum by chance and not sure if I am eligible to comment!! I went to Owler Lane Infants and then Grimesthorpe Juniors before passing my 11+ in 1965 and going on to grammar school. I have two older brothers who also went to these schools and then onto Owler Lane Secondary (not quite as brainy as I was), Keith and Bernard - our surname was Sprague. We lived on Firth Park Road, the Page Hall end. Names I remember from those days are Linda Wilson, Diane Holmes, David Palmer, Maureen Howard, Carol Edwards, Denise Farmer, Alan Oldfield, Malcolm Ullyatt.

Hi Annie,

Is Keith about 60ish I think he was in mine and Walt's year at Junior school.

Thank you, I had a double take, thought I'd gone on to part one :-) You'll have to ask if I'm on or wear a badge, although I hope we don't meet at work, the reunion would be better lol

Hi Cat and all,

somewhere hidden in our house photographs do exist of my good self wearing a TUTU, WIG, Black Tights and carrying a Fairy Wand. In my defence I have to say it was a new years eve fancy dress party, I did have many comments in the pubs in Chapeltown, the main one as I recall was Where Do You Keep Your Wallet, to which I replied have a feel first before you look. I'll leave that to your own imaginations, if found I will bring them to the next reunion, Val Barrett eat your heart out.

 

Same outfit you were wearing when we saw you in Morrisons cafe then Roger......:)

Hi DavidRa, Yes Keith was 60 last year and Bernard is 2 years older.

Hi MrsJDS, assuming you are MrsJDS 4th, as I am MrsJDS 2nd!! It's a small world. How are you keeping? Hope life is treating you well now. Skeggy is just fine - bit damp and chilly - but fine.

Mrs JDS, I thought you was keeping that a secret between ourselves and the rest of Morrisons.

You've just confirmed my suspitions, Did you manage to avoid going to the toilet all evening?. How do you sit down wearing a tutu? I will have to get used to calling you Desmond,, or Desdemona.:confused:
