John Quinn - a Memory of Worcester.
I wonder if anyone might remember my father who was a teacher in and around Worcester for many years. He began his career at a primary school in Claines, probably in the late 1940s. Thereafter he worked at St Paul's Secondary, in a building which I believe is now a Worcester porcelain museum. He followed this with a spell as deputy head (I think) at St George's Roman Catholic Primary on Sansome Place, before moving to Bristol in 1968 to the post of headteacher at a primary school near the centre of the city.
In his spare time he trained football teams, firstly in the St Paul's district and later at the YMCA on Henwick Road.
Unfortunately he died very suddenly in 1987, from anaphylactic shock. He was 66.
