I well remember this school trip to Switzerland. I was in my last year at secondary school so I think it must have been 1965. That's my brother Jeff Lomas and me in the far left window of the coach. The man with the dark top and the woman with the light top waving on the left of the photograph, are my Mum and Dad Freesia and Charley Lomas. The trip was organised by the then Whaley Bridge school headmaster, Mr Eliot. I think his name was Bob and he was a remarkable guy, way ahead of his time. The trip was a great success and I am sure many of the kids were greatly inspired by the experience.
