Angela,

I am a Group Scout Leader at the Scout Hut on Kendrick Avenue, this was right opposite your School.I am doing a project on the Yorks Wood Scout Campsite that closed down in 1972. Do you have memries of the camp-site at all. One of my friends used to go to that school her name was Valarie Summers back then.

Hello, I also attended Longmeadow Girls School in the 1960's. I remember the teachers you mention, TMD, and also Mrs. Young, Mr. Gray, Miss Shaw, Mrs. Clarke, Mrs. Robertson. It's surprising what you can remember when someone jogs your memory! Eileen

re: Long Meadow Girls School

Hi everyone I have just joined the "Club" and have been looking thru the threads. I came upon this one and had to post.. I was working on the milk and used to deliver to the girls school in Long Meadow in 1966/67. There were a couple of girls who used to help me deliver the milk on a Friday when the "roundsman was collecting the money and I was ahead delivering. They used to help me in their dinner hour and I ended up going out with one and my mate went out with her mate.. But It didn't last long as we had to walk from the "Radleys" over to Shard End every night. And had to go through Lea Village after dark, Ha Ha.. While I was delivering around that area we used to have a young lad who used to help us we called them "Runners". One day he told us he knew this lad who was selling a tent (We were keen campers in them days) mind you I still am but now have a VW type 2 camper-van ..I digress. So we bought this tent off this lad, very cheap. We never bothered opening it and we opened it when we went camping down St Ives in Cornwall. Well it was a big heavy canvas tent and on the sides it had written on it, "Yorks Wood Scout Group". Well we never had that tent very long. Ha Ha ....

Hi Jen I can remember during assembly Miss Heatherington threw a Javlin across the stage to warn us how "dangerious"! they were, any one else remember?? Mrs Cooper an art teacher? I remember Mrs Peacock being my art teacher also Mrs Breasley the needlework teacher, I also remember that you were only allowed to do typing if you were going to "stay on" ? needles to say I left and did typing at night school at Alderlea Boys School.

I left Longmeadow in July 1965 Miss Featherstone Headmistress Mrs Young Deputy - I remember she smacked me once, but have no complaints. Remember Miss Cass PE/Maths and Mrs Dyke who I think was my form teacher.

Also went to Hillstone about 1955-1960/61

I remember it. Three of my Sisters went there in the 70's. We used to live up the road by the British Legion, Hurst Lane. :)
