Hi Adrian, I remember you from many years ago my locker was number 3 and if I remember right yours was number 40. I have loads of treasured memories from Haseley and remember lots of people, however I haven’t met or got in touch with anyone since I left. I’ve always wanted to but never known how to. My last dormitory was wolves and I shared the room with Delory Clive and Richard. We tried to escape one night and got caught by Miss Royal. Do you still live in Birmingham or have you moved away?

That makes sense your locker was on the right of mine. Do you remember Christmas? When we had to line up to mix the Christmas pudding, and the nativity plays. I remember a tall black man Josep Poxon, and I hid his sandles one afternoon. The next day we all had to look for them, I found them straight away and I was made to eat my dinner downstairs in the hall by your locker. Christmas was lovely there and I remember making decorations and hated when we had to go in the paddling pool. By the way I think the old car has since gone and haseley hall is now posh apartments. I revisited around 5 years ago and walked around the grounds, it was very emotional.

Yes christmas time there was great, and of course i remember the nativity plays i played the angel one time and mary another time, i remember getting in trouble a few times there, yes i have been thinking over the decades to go for a visit and walk around that way in 2023 as a 50th year of leaving. yes it is now posh apartments i have seen them advertised and in a recent time a police investigation going on about certain activities and people beried on the grounds. yes i forgot to mention in my last reply i am still around birmingham, i had the chances to move around and abroard during the years, but stayed in the midlands. so what you upto nowadays.

I live in Stourbridge currently but did live in Birmingham for over 40 years. It’s really nice to hear from you as I’ve always wondered what has happened to everyone, and where they are now. I recall our last journey before leaving, I got dropped acocks-green, I ran off the coach as fast as I could without even saying goodbye, and I’ve regretted since. I often wonder what happened to all my friends, but I’ve never found out. Glad to hear your doing okay, please keep in touch.
