Yes, it was emotional. I stood outside the Brushfield Street gate earlier in the morning and the memories came gushing back of my mum who passed on 9 years ago.   Oddly, I've discovered that

I didn't go to Berridge, but my grandparents lived nearby and we often visited them, so I knew the area without being aware of the school.

 

It's quite possible I could've passed several Nottstalgia ex-Berridgeans in the street in the first half of the 1960s.

Another who DIDN'T go to Berridge, although the thread is interesting anyway.

 

I went to ArnoVale, so that looks like 2  3 in the "I went to ArnoVale and not Berridge" section of the non-Berridge old boys/girls association!

Benjamin. in the late 40's and early 50's we had a football pitch on the Nutall Rd annex. We played some matches on the Forest. We never seemed to do very well. Maybe cos I was not selected :rolleyes: I played cricket for the school though.

I only ever played football for Berridge at the Nuthall Road ground which was opposite the Whitemore pub or very nearly. I was rubbish at football but excelled in Rugby and Rowing at secondary school. I dont know a 'Greg' from either school or police. I didn't start infants until 1959 so perhaps out of my timeframe.

The  last photo was originally posted by Alan Randall and is believed to date from 1960/1.

 

The name, Miss Gould, has been mentioned for the teacher. Neither Letsavagoo nor myself recall her, although this was before our time. A junior class, taken in the playground fronting Brushfield Street.
