I was in the class that was a year after this one although many of the people had been in the same class as me over the years with the school. In particular, Jeff Gainer, who was in my class the following year with Mr Williams. We both ended up going to Bablake and I'm still in touch with Jeff who is now the Vicar of Meidrim and Merthyr Tydfil and Canon of St Davids Cathedral. Those of you who remember Jeff might smile at that. I also caught up with David Williams years after he retired from teaching. I was working for a firm of accountants in Cornwall and his son was working just down the road from me. I visited him at his home in Coventry later on and we had a pleasant afternoon catching up, smoking and sipping the odd scotch! It never ceases to amaze me what a small world it is. I called in at the school on the same day. It had all changed by then, and the senior school had been absorbed into Foxford, leaving only the infants and juniors. Anyway, best wishes to anyone who remembers me. David Randle

drandle. I bumped into Jeffrey Gainer in St Ives many years ago. He was just going into the library at the time. I knew he had entered the clergy. I know a Terry Randle. He played soccer for the same team as I did and he actually drove my Cortina home after I broke my leg during a game at Pinley fields. Bumped into Terry some years later (at Chapel Porth, also in Cornwall) He was into abseiling down the railway viaducts & cliff faces. Went to visit him a year later in Stithians. I vaguely remember a David Randle or more correctly (I think) David Hines-Randle who lived in Clark Street, Bell Green. I used to play in the street (and the brook) by the Golden Fleece. My cousins (Peter, Paul & Sandra Tuson lived down by the bridge to the Fleece. Tim Nobes also lived in Clark Street. He was a bit older and used to ride around on an Ariel Arrow (with false petrol tank removed)

Hi drandle. You mention a Mr Williams at Longford Park School, in Windmill Road. I went to that school, probably a little earlier than yourself, Our sports teacher was a Mr Williams, and his wife, Mrs Williams took us for maths. Do you think that this is the same Mr Williams who taught you. We all had a great deal of respect for our Mr Williams.

Was Mr Williams' son called Nigel? My memory isn't what it was, but I seem to recall a Nigel Williams in my class at Longford Park Primary. Whatever it was, I know he was Mr W's boy.
