AS a regular reader of The Bugle I am enclosing for your attention a photograph of my school class dating back, I believe, to 1963/64 from Corngreaves Junior Boys School, Meredith Street, Cradley Heath. It is now the site of the Salvation Army Hall.
In those days I lived literally opposite the school in Meredith Street.
I can name most of my fellow pupils:
Back row left to right: Keith Unitt, Tony Watts, Geoffrey Amphlett, John Griffiths, Geoffrey Totney, (?), (?), Stephen Yates.
Third row: Martin Smith, Brennan ?, Kelvin Cox, John Houghton, Stephen Walker, Colin Parker.
Second row: Paul Salt, Robert Walker, Norman Riley, Deputy Head Mr Sam Jackson, Stuart Wyre, Stephen Bradley, Stephen Green.
Front row: Clive Davies, Lindsey Chilton, Roger Bennett, Terry Silvers, Martin Johnson, Chris Williams.
Since those school days I have, with a couple of exceptions, not seen any of my fellow classmates and wonder where everyone is today. We will all now be either 59 or 60 years of age, and I would love to hear from anyone who wishes to get in touch.
I have remained in the area. From Meredith Street, I moved with my parents to live in The Crescent in Haden Hill and my home has been for some while in Halesowen.
I am a conveyancing executive based in the Halesowen office of Thursfields solicitors. For many years prior to that I was employed in the same building by Halesowen solicitors White & Billingham.
For many years my regular place of worship was Cradley Heath Salvation Army and for the last 18 years I have been a member of Holy Trinity Church, Old Hill.
I am therefore very surprised that having always lived and worked in the same area I very rarely see anyone from these old school days.
I would be delighted to hear from my old class mates and I can be contacted at stephenjd firstname.lastname@example.org
