    Happy Memories,

    I think the year is either 1984/85.

    I remember our teacher located to the right of the photo Mr Rennison, was obsessed with anything to do with the Romans! I do think we learned more about the Romans than anything else! Ha!

    From looking at the faces I think I remember most of the names(At that time); please forgive me if I get the spellings wrong.

    Back row L to R.

    Rachael Edmundson, Nathan Stone, Paul Matthews, Matthew Jackson, Philip Robinson, Rory Lewis, Sarah Bell, Lindsey Moore.

    Middle row L to R.

    Scott Lawson, Lee Hogarth, Rodney Bell, Jamie Turnbull, James Robson, Alex Wood, Adam Story, Gary Allan.

    Front Row L to R.,

    Fiona Mclean, Gail Thompson, Lindsey Stewart, (Can’t remember), Clare Lambert, Sarah Hindmarsh, Wendy Thomson, Julie Hall, Sharon Wilson, Anthony Mullen, Barry Jobling.

        Hi Paul,

        Good to hear you’re well!

        I now reside in Portsmouth, UK. Currently serving in the Royal Navy and have been for nearly 22 years now. The last I heard of your exploits was that you moved to Australia after being at Amble Middle School for only a short time.

        Best regards!

    I remember the photo of us at Amble County Secondary School with Mr.Abrahart. We were in form 3 so we would be 14 years old at the time.
    I left school the following year and moved to Wolverhampton where I started my apprenticeship with Chubb and Sons Lock and Safe company as an engineering apprentice.

  4. Unbelievable – Amble County First School 1979 … thats me second row from the top , third from the right next to Melanie White and Alan on the end ( I think ). Loved my school days so much – the best memories. Would be lovely to hear from anyone – I’ve lost touch.

    Re the Edwin St School photo c. 1949.
    I was amazed to see that old relic on the Ambler site. I am in that photo, at the extreme left of the group, in the leather jacket.

    Now aged 83 and have been living in Western Australian since end of 1950.

    Nay way! Seeing my childhood mate Mullen (and recognising a few of his mates names too) in the mid 80s and a pic of Mr Rennison too. Top respect to him even if I was a disruptive little sod, I was gutted hearing he passed away at the young age he was. I still pass through now and then and will always have fond memories of Amble. Now if I could just place coquet island off the beach in El Arenal the view from mine would be complete😂
