Hi everyone have just joined the forum but have been following the site for a few years decided to join having read the posts of wedgie  jeftee and John Dee all of whom I remember from my time at Alderlea. I was there as a pupil from 1964 - 1969 and worked at the school from late 1970 -1978 as the workshop technician with Alan Graham Stan Bottley Chris Thomason Vic Allen  John Merrill  when I left and moved to Devon my name is Richard Hirst better Known as Dick have many memories of classmates and staff . Played football and cricket for the school as did JohnDee and jeftee was house captain for Lancaster during 1969 we were champion house that year but I didn't get to lift the trophy at assembly because I wagged the day off to go fishing with Pete French and Andy Young :-[ and we never caught anything either. Would love to hear of anyone that remembers me still  intouch with Pete Colin and Steve Bateman met my wife at the school valentines dance she went to Longmeadow girls we met in 1969 got married in 1973 at all saints church shard end  and we are still together don't know if that was just bad luck ;D however please keep posting and putting on photos hope someone responds Thank You All.

A couple of the pubs that you asked for, TheTwo Hands & The Heathway and I thought you might like to see The British Legion Club on Brownfield Rd.
Hi Phil I used to work at the Heathway and belonged to the Heathway darts team 1976 aporox
