I remember the Co-Op on London Road in the 1970s, we used to have ballroom dancing lessons above it.
I read recently that Mrs Smithers had passed away. She was deputy head in the late 50s.
Hi. My mum Bernice was the PA to Len Thompson in late 60s. Just wondered if anyone has photos. Thanks all.
My grandfather Albert Bartlett had his photo taken with a few ( about 5 ) of the other men who worked with him in the sheds. They were in front of The Remembrance Steam Engine. We have been looking for a copy of the photo for ages and would love to make a copy if anyone has it. We already have the large photo of all the managers.
According to the Hove author and historian Judy Middleton, on her Hove History website, it was removed in 1959 as being in poor condition. No info as to where it was removed to, though.
Steve, hello, I remember you very well, came to your house near Hassocks once, I believe. I loved that school, food was excellent, sports great, discipline good using stripe books. I remember the Welsh teacher Williams shouting “Quarter stripe boy”. Mind you I was absolutely hopeless at work, my reports were appalling! So much I liked about that school. Before we both moved on to BC. Anyway Steve get in touch, cheers, Paul Hobbs ( oh you not likely)
