Hi Viv,
I remember the college well,i went there on day release from 1965 to 1970 as an apprentice mechanic,made some good friends,learned quite a lot & had a lot of fun (some of which i won't go into),i wonder how many of them carried on in the trade as i did until i retired.
I shall have to try & remember some names of who taught us.
many thanks
Ogri

Went to a lecture at Cadbury's by Mr Sheppard-Fidler about design of Birmingham Council houses. Probably 1958 or thereabouts. Was a pupil at Hall Green Tech very early 1960's Did a NEBBS management course followed by a City & Guilds in engineering or maybe the other way around.

Hi Ogri, I also went to Hall Green Tech on the apprentice Mechanics course but from 1970-74. Is Ogri the name of a comic character. A motor bike magazine as I recall?

Hi Ogri, yes. think it was Bike magazine. I remember the first copy and looked forward to every copy.
My first bike BSA Bantam, then Honda, then straight to a Kawasaki Z1R, the first of a number of big Kawasakis. Still have a couple of bikes in a lock up, lol. All the best.

I recall he was a character on the back page of a bike magazine. He had a pal called Malcom Thrasher. I used to ride a Tiger Cub
