A Memory of Morley.
In 1962 I started as a first year in the New Secondary school on Bruntcliffe Lane.
The Headteacher was Mr Standeven and the Headmistress Mrs Mawson. Mr Peel was Deputy Head. I was Erica Norgate and my friend at school was Janet Talbot. Others that I can remember are Steven Todd, Peter Draper, Chris Reekie, Edwina Speight, Helen Billyard, Pat Sykes, Beverley Barraclough and Maureen Bennett. Lovely memories of growing up in Morley.
My Mum had the fish and chip shop at the side of Morley Market.
I went as a 15 year old to Morley Town Hall dances and was a member of Mount Pleasant Youth group where I attained the Duke of Edinburghs award along with about another 20 girls.
The names I can remember are Christine Brown, Julie Reekie, Christine (her Dad was an Undertaker) Jayne Ruecroft, Janice Sharpe, Janet Talbot, Elaine Foster. Happy days
