Hi Edmund Fifield, sorry for the delay in replying to your question,  I wasn't born until 1952 went to Ridpool when I was 7. We lived in Crossfield road opposite the bus garage. Good time there growing up.
Do you remember the woods family from Cole hall lane?

Hi townie, sorry for the delay being a plumbing builder it's hectic  at the moment.
We didn't move to nearmoor road till 65.
I was in the same class as John de and went through school with the same lads.
Townie do you remember Peter Turner?
He was in your year don't no what class unfortunately he passed away in 2016. Do you remember the room above the stage, we used to hide in there to avoid going to Mr Degvilled lesson till we were found out
and got the cane off Reeves.

Hi Jeff. Seem to remember a Turner no sure of the first name, did he live in Turnley Road? Yes I remember the room above the stage didn't go up there very often as I weren't at school that much. Can you remember where the library was, was in on the second or third floor, not that I remember ever going in there though. Who was in your year I will see if I remember them.
