St Winefrides infant and junior school

Postby claire-h » Sun May 16, 2010 9:17 am

I went to St Winefrides infants & juniors from Jan1956 - July 1963. I lived in Balliol Road and went to St winefrides church.
Some names I remember, the Murphy family on Merton Road, The Donaghues, Margaret Munro, Katherine Carr. Is anybody from that era on this site?

Tony,
I assume then the 'Jones' lived between us. I can't remember you by name but I lived there until 1973. Our surname was Gibbon. You may have known some other members of the family :?:

Hi Claire,

I stumbled on this website while doing a search on the Merton Arms pub on Coffee House Bridge.
I'm Danny Murphy, one of the 15 Murphys who lived at 65, Merton Rd, opposite St Winefiride's Juniors.

I went to the Infants and the Juniors round the same time as you, as did my brothers, John, Eugene, Paddy and Cormac and my younger sister, Therese.
I remember the teachers, Mrs Moore and Miss Jones at the Infants; and Miss Kilgallon, Mr Murdoch, Mr Fearon and Mr Moss at the Juniors.
We left Merton Rd in 1971 and moved down to London.
I've recently moved back up to Merseyside (Ainsdale).
Many happy memories.

Best Wishes,

Danny

Bob - thanks for the photos. I think the Lock & Quay was the Little Merton. The Merton Arms was right on the canal on Coffee House Bridge.

Matt - good to hear from you. Yes, I do remember there was a doctor and an elderly lady living opposite. We moved to Merton Rd from a 3 bed terrace in Worcester Rd in 1957. It was like heaven! - such a big house and garden,

Thanks Bob. So, it was the Railway. I remember a big sign near it saying BBC (Bootle Barge Company). We used to cut down there to get to the canal.

I attended St Winnies Jr Boys up to 1958 then St Mary's in Crosby
I remember Mr Fearon and Mr "Dickie" Moss who played the piano and had greased down black hair. Also Messrs Tom McClair , Jorgenson and Jones.
"Dickie" had a bone abnormality in his wrist which stuck out like a small apple. He would clout us over the head with it which seemed to cause him no pain unlike the recipient

Sonoma - you may have been in the same year as my brother Jimmy at St Mary's. His junior school was St Monica's as we lived in that parish till 1957.
I was at at St Winnie's Juniors till 1965, then went to St Mary's. My brothers Paddy, Cormac, Eamon, and Mick also went to St Mary's.
Yes, I remember Mossie in his pinstriped suits. He became head after Mr Fearon died. We were also taught by Miss Bellew,

I don't remember Murphy's from my time at St Winnies. I remember Tommy WIllis, Matty Short, Terry Conlin, Francis Pike, Alec Wiseman and that is about it
I am 72 so was likely a year ahead of Jimmy

I had to chuckle on reading these posts, i had only been telling about mossy last week,
How you would cringe when he walked behind you when you were " doing your scales" if you were ( off ) he would give you a crack on the head .
i left in 61 :D :D :D
