The un-named boy on the front row is Lynn Edwards, I also believe he has changed his Christian name to Glynn for some reason unknown to me. Also Alan on the back row is called Kelsall not Kelso. Miss Needham married Ken Hall, the metalwork teacher from Chapel school. His nickname was Killer Hall and Mrs Hall went on to teach at a school at New Mills.

Wouldn't have picked him out without the list of names provided but can now see Bernard Jones, my cousin.

How many of us are still alive?
This is a real blast from the past and I certainly recognise most of those in the photo. Often wondered what happened to my school friends. Still visit Whaley - one of my favourite places. I lived on Williamson Crescent until 1959 when I moved to Buxton.
