Went to the reunion today. Many thanks to David France! It was good to see some of the old faces again from my year, Roger walker, Keith Spooner, and of course David France. From the year after, there were  Ian Brelsford, Frank Turner, Malcolm Gladwin, Ralph Holmes and Dave Storf(sp?). There were lots more from other years, David is I think going to post a list of everyone. Some of the girls attended, including  Sandra Cook and Valerie Shaw.

 

An ex-pupil who used to live at the top of our road was also there, Tony Foulds who has been in the the news lately regarding his dedication to the Mi Amigo memorial in Endcliffe park over all these years. It was a pleasure to meet him again after all this time.

We also had a very tasty "school dinner" in the cafe, good value for money.

 

Once again, thanks to David for organizing things.

Thorpy, thank you very much for your kind comments. I'm entertaining visitors from Oz tonight but I will post the  full "report" on the reunion as soon as possible, together with confirmation of the special Christmas Reunion we discussed today.  But, yes, it was a great day and fantastic to see all those people from Sharrow's past.

I spoke with David on Wednesday suggesting we created a Facebook page for ex pupils.

Fair comment from David, he wasn't keen on the idea himself,so I have created a Facebook page ' Sharrow Lane school ex pupils '

Please feel free to post sensible comments on there.

Hopefully we can reach out to more  ex pupils

A favour please if you know my name, don't broadcast it far and wide !

Finally I have a few minutes to report on the latest Sharrow Lane School Reunion held on Wednesday 26th June.  Altogether 29 former pupils and Sharrow residents turned up, the youngest aged 71 and the eldest, I think, 85. We had a terrific two hour session of exchanging memories and revelling in the atmosphere of the old Junior School Hall. 

With their permission, here is a list of those present:

(The ladies consented to using their maiden names)

 

Valerie Shaw; Christine France; Brian Milner; Tony Ford; Denis Anson; Mick Glossop; Jack wade; Alan Barnett; Tony Faulds MBE;  Dave Holmes; Dave Storf; Ian Brelsford; Malcolm Gladwin; Ralph Holmes; Frank Turner; keith Spooner; John Beatson; Tony Hardwick; Roger Walker; John Smith; Phil Smith; Roger Stevenson; Graham Whitham; Darrell Whitham; Pauline Mackreal; Diane Goodwin; Ronald Hibbert and myself, David France. 

 

It was soon agreed that there should be another reunion later this year and so it has been decided there will be a special Christmas Lunch event at 1pm on Wednesday 27th November 2019 but places MUST be pre-booked through me. A price for the lunch will be published nearer the date. Watch this space!

 

I do have a few photos from Wednesday which I would like to post on here but cannot find a way to do it.

I reckon I am pretty computer/internet savvy but this has me beaten. I have been talking to "helpline" who say there is a way to post photos - which I cannot see -  but I have finally concluded that I am confused over which Sheffield Forum I am talking to.   I had not realised there is a "Sheffield Forum" and a Sheffield History Forum.....which does make it easy to register photos. So......please would all Sharrovians follow me on the Sheffield History Forum where I will post this piece again WITH photos?
