School Days - Best of Your Life

After the success of a previous 'School Days' exhibition, Mary of Ross Heritage Centre is currently running an updated version with even more interesting old photographs and memorabilia. There are old school magazines, ex pupils' accounts of their lives at school and many other interesting items.

One of the most interesting facts we discovered was that in 1984, the John Kyrle High School Choir, lead by Joyce Backhouse, entered the BBC Sainsbury's Choir of the Year competition. 260 choirs entered the contest that year, so there was a fair bit of competition and the school did reach the semi finals which were televised.

You can see some of visit to the exhibition in this week's WNTV News programme.

What's behind the wall

If you have been wondering what it looks like behind the flood alleviation scheme wall at the Millpond Street end of the works - it looks like this.

On Monday morning, Councillor Gordon Lucas and I went along by kind invitation of old friend, Joe Sutton to the offices and back entrance of J.S. Carpets, where the view is perfect, and ideal for taking photographs.

In Issue 184 of 'Wyeot News' and that particular edition of WNTV News we showed the huge tunnelling machine arriving at the Homs Road end of the tunnel. This is a view of the other end.
