Tony, I've not heard anything and there's been no action on this thread. I didn't go to Cottesmore, but I know some members did, I hope they see it.

we would have loved to have gone but had a funeral on that day so could not make it hope it was a success anyway.

I went to Cottesmore from 1956 to 1960. Sad to hear it is coming down. Another bit of Nottingham dissapearing.

Some of the boys in my year were: Michael Pemberton, Michael Onion, Michael Johnson, and Alan Woodwood.

Anyone know where they are these days?

Hey KevinDolphin, my Mum left in the same year you did, just wondered if you remembered her, Sharon Cowlishaw? Or anyone else who may remember her/attended at the same time/or has any general info!

Melissa, following on from my PM to you the other day, I've just remembered another link I have in common with you...my mum went to Cottesmore - but in the 1930s/40s so I don't think she coincided with anyone you might know.

The links are insane haha! My Gran, whom I never got to meet went attended in the 1930s! Have you seen the LentonTimes website? (Can't recall who posted it before on another thread) but I happened to stumbled across a photo of my Gran on there! There's a few names that could possibly be your Mum! If you're not familiar with the site, I'll link you to it :)

My Dad was there in the 30's .....

Same for you Lizzie! You might find a photo of your Father on the site, you never know! Will post a link if anyone wants/hasn't got it already :)

Just thinking more about my Dad going to Cottesmore ...... he actually passed the exam to go to High Pavement but refused to go there because they played rugby. His Dad couldn't care less where he went (yeah, not a very good father). Anyway my Dad was a very good footballer, captained the school team and played for Nottingham Boys before going to Notts County. The war came at the wrong time for him but he was in the RAF team for several years. He would NEVER watch rugby on the telly but I did drag him to watch my sons playing a few times!!

Seems your Father was quite the bright spark Lizzie! My Dad was a good footballer in his day too and played for City Boys and got scouted by Man City but for some reason gave up on it!

That's a shame Melissa, but then a professional footballer only has until early 30's before he has to find something else to do for the rest of his life. They can't all go on to be managers!

You're beginning to tie yourself in a knot trying to read everything at once! It was me who posted the link, and here it is again for anyone - including LizzieM - who might want to play "Spot the relative". http://www.lentontimes.co.uk/streets/cottesmore_school.htm
