School Days At Barnsley Girls High School

A Memory of Barnsley

I remember travelling by bus from Wombwell to Barnsley Bus Station to go to school, I then had to go through town past the Town Hall and up to the top of Huddersfield Road where Barnsley Girls High School was situated. I met lots of new people there and made friends with a few, one of them was Susan Margaret Ward as she was known in those days, at that time she lived in Monk Bretton, obviously her name will have changed now as I believe she later married. We lost touch as those were busy days and we both moved to different areas, I moved to Lincolnshire with my husband and family and where we still live. I am retired now but still keep busy and I would love to be in touch with Susan again or at least know that she is ok and happy. if anyone knows of her whereabouts or contact details I would be grateful to know about them. If there is anyone else from that era and was in the same class at school I would be delighted to hear from you!
