Hi jl-heating. I can't remember the Coopers you mention....it's such a long time ago! You say Suzanne went to school with Susan Lambert. Susan is probably related to me but I'm not sure who she is. Maybe one of my cousin's daughters.

Hi Andrew

If I have ages right Barry your dad should be around 66 if so we went to school same time and yes his Dad was the youth club leader in the old church hall.

Simple times but good table tennis, playing the gramphone, etc

They lived in flat topped council houses on Armsted rd
