My mother-in-law, Mrs Rose Jennings, used to help run a club at Hardwick school in Stockton for several years. I believe the purpose was to care for the youngsters until one of their working parents could make it home after work. She thoroughly enjoyed the hobby. This photograph was taken on Halloween night 1975. Perhaps it will stir a few memories?

My mam (May Jones) looked after latch key children at Hardwick youth club and worked looking after toddlers at Hardwick Community Centre.
My Aunty Joan Wiley used to help with a youth club at Hardwick, though I think it was before the time of this photo. Our Headmaster Mr. Laycock went to be Headmaster of Hardwick school.
