  1. Have 1949 photo of mellish pupils and staff. call t.glover1@ntlworld.com for a copy
  2. In the early 1960s I rode my Vincent Shadow to Beeston. Outside a shack on Stoney Street was a Triumph "Thunderbod" with the headlamp in bits. I spoke to the man piggling with the wiring and offered to help. We soon repaired it and off it went. I realised this was an escape from coronation street at home so I began to spend all my spare time repairing the bikes and scooters that were in those days either fast or nearly scrap . Mr T R Muir (7R rider) and I ran this emporium for many years until it was torn down for redevelopment. Is there any body out there?? SPIDER.

Moaner Jones (french &singing) Evans (art) The school was affected by mine subsidence so you didn`t lean on the wall when the punishment parade occurred (outside the staff room at playtime) for fear of it falling ---there was a 2"gap in it!
