  • Is picture number 1 (CHAD 3018) a production of ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’? Crouching on the front is someone dressed as a rat. I think there had been a performance at Brackenhurst – an agricultural college in Notts. I left Broomhill in 1963, and my two younger brothers Alan and Charles also went there.

  • Chad no 7673 I believe maybe me, at the front on the right, with the short blond hair and striped collar on my dress, which I believe was red. My name was Jane Conway. I have ok memories of my time there 61-67. I hated Miss Turner, I did nothing wrong but she had favourites and I wasn’t one of them.
    I represented the school at Berryhill sports in the high jump, alongside a boy I believe was called Michael Collins. We both did solos in the assembly choir too. I was in the school choir, we did competitions and did choral verse in competitions all under Mr Burton’s tutelage. I remember Mr Richards and his sticky spittal which I couldn’t seem to not look at whilst he was teaching, he was a nice teacher to me, a refreshing change from Miss Turner. I remember cornflake pudding (layer of pastry, layer of raspberry jam and cornflakes on top) and I remember the pink custard too. I have never eaten meat since that school as we were forced to eat all fat and gristle too which made me heave and put me off for life.
    I am sorry I don’t recall anyone who was there with me as friends, wish I could.

  • I am in the picture number 11, second row up on the far left holding what I believe was a 10 shilling note. It was a prize for my collage of an Owl made from wood shavings.
