I'm sure I've mentioned this before but I must say it again. Does any one remember the 'gingerbread' men in the tar? in the sandstane walls of the Park St School?

Me too, can't remember dates exactly, but I would have been 8 in 1955. I remember Miss Barrow at Hawthorn Road, then Mr Pike, head at Christ Church, and Mr Campbell, can't remember other teachers names. I lived on Worcester Road near the park.

Not quite as old as you (5 in 1955)
There was a Miss Roberts from Stuart Road and I think a Mrs Roberts but I'm not sure.

Christ Church Primary School

Postby Pegasus » Sun Sep 23, 2012 7:43 pm

I went to Gloucester Road Primary School (Christ Church) in 1947 then went to Christ Church on Hawthorne Road around 1950, then Eden Vale (a big house) opposite the church in 1952 and finally Balliol Secondary Modern School in 1954 until 1957.

Was the School on Gloucester Road near Aintree Road known as the Primary School? if so, what is the school at the corner of Hawthorne Road and Park Street? In Canada we call it Middle School.

Vivian, I'm sure you and I went to school together and I think I am looking at a photograph of you right now in a school photograph taken at Balliol; if so, I wonder if you remember me, Randall Crossley? 'me man' used to send us to Green's opposite the school on Hawthorne Road to buy meat pies (I can taste them even now).

Hi Pegasus,
Not sure if you will remember a fella who lived in that Road, Horis was his name, lived half way up, had lovely roses outside his house and kept chicken in the back yard. Two sisters lived next door to him, didn't know their names.
I'm going back to when I was a nipper, around 1975 ish.

Hi Jeand

Still living as you do in Bootle, it may not be the 'small world' for you that we ex-pats rave about so much but it is a 'small world' and I'm trying to remember if you were one of the many schoolfriends our Joyce brought home from time to time.

Do you still see Joyce? shopping perhaps in The Strand?

Hi Ray

When you were graduating Grammer School in 1979 I had already been in 'the workforce' for two years (Lamport & Holt Line in the Royal LIver Building) also, I might add, had my very first date with a waitress from Lyons Tea House on Bold Street where the office staff used to go for Lunch.

My God Ray, how time flies; I try to get back to the UK every once in awhile and where I knew Liverpool 'like the back of my hand' I get lost now so easily (even in Bootle where I was born on Southport Road/Earl Road).

I deserted the UK for Canada and now live on Vancouver Island in my retirement (where the grandchildren can't find me. lol).

Anyway, what did you do with your life Ray? still live in Bootle? I read the Echo regularly and can't believe the violence; the extent of the violence in my day was playing Conkers (but a Grammer School boy wouldn't know what that is. lol). By the way Ray, I went to Balliol. I once told an interviewer here in Canada that I went to Balliol and she assumed I meant Balliol 'College' Oxford (yeh right!).

Anyway Ray, nice to hear from you, hope life is treating you well, if you have a moment, drop me a line or two.

Take Care.

Randall

Hi
I've just joined this forum and I lived at 64 Gloucester road. I've lived in Cornwall for over 40 years but return 'home' each year. My house was directly opposite the side door of Christ Church and as a child, often used to watch the children in the playground from my mum and dad's bedroom window. Hours were spent swinging from the lampost outside the school gate. I went to St Monica's school but often attended functions, Christmas and such like, at Christ Church because my best friend, Christine Cottier, who lived two doors up from me, was a pupil there from , I think 1946. She would be 71 now. Does anyone remember her? I would love to find her. I can only recall, that she moved to live in another street in Bootle. Mary Gulliver (Connell)

I was at ChristChurch Primary from 1960 to 1966 and I do remember the gingerbread men in the walls. I was in the same class as the late Paul Ford, who I believe, was a member of this site and also Janice Long, Radio 1 DJ. I then went on to Bootle Grammar.

I also left Christ Church in 1959, but went on to Balliol Road Secondary Modern. I have recently made contact with a fellow ex pupil from Christ Church, Steve Dargan, who also went on to the Grammar School in Litherland in 1959, the same time as yourself. Also in the same cohort heading for the Grammar School I recall were Howard McKenzie and Malcolm Wycherley. Do you remember any of them?

I was in the same class as Malcolm Wycherleys older brother Robert(Bob) all the way
through Christ Church and the first year in the grammar and had a major crush on their older sister. :oops: .Bob was sensible and took Spanish
in the second year and I took and failed Latin.Lot of good Latin would be to a stoker in the RN. :lol: :lol:

I am just wondering if Robert Wycherley lived on Gloucester Rd and was his older sister named Grace ?

If so then the world is getting smaller by the minute.

Hi Pegasus, sorry for such a late reply :lol: not been on site for a few years! and decided to come back on this week and saw your text about us going to school together. Really sorry but don't remember the name but then don't remember a lot of names from then unless the are wriiten down with a picture. When you say went to school together do you mean Christ Church or Balliol or both? Not certain what picture you are looking at? My name was Bromby and we lived at 81 Park Street if that helps. Hope your reply is not as long as mine :D
