  11. I am hoping to reunite with old girls from Pierrepont Secondary Modern School for Girls. The school on Gordon Rd was founded in 1933 and ran as an all girls school till 1968. A Reunion is being planned for the 80th anniversary of the founding of the school this year. All enquiries can be directed to me.

    Victoria Baths

    That's a name from the past = Cyril Stapleton. I recall my mum saying that she went to school with him - and how he had become famous through his music.
