    • Unfortunately we only have two seasons here. Hot & Wet or Hot & Dry. I do sometimes wish we were more seasonal , but having said that I was watching a Boro match the other week & was glad I was sat here & not there. The wind & rain was horrendous.
      The problem at the minute is that it is hard to get into the festive spirit when walking down Orchard Road ( Singapore ) listening to “Jingle Bells” blaring out & it is 30 + degrees C . Still there are plenty of places to get a few cold one to stop them going sour…

      • I still have the photo but not in such good condition. It is great to know all the names I had forgotten. Though I still remember Jean Renwick a lady I loved from afar. Jeff Smith ,Jean Renwick, Kenny Burns, Pam Gooder and a few others all ended up at Hardwick School. It is good to know that there are still a few of us still around.

    • Hi Terry
      Thank you for putting the names to the faces, I think your brothers right about them all, the reason I have posted the photo is I bumped into Jeff Smith and Colin Henderson a few weeks ago and it was a nice surprise that after 53 years they remembered me . Once again thank you.
