Hello Driff!

If you used to live in Driffield, and have moved on, why not drop a quick note and let everyone know how you are getting on.

Just discovered this fascinating site. remember Alan Bremner and Candy very well. also Phillip Dutton Dave MacMillan, Carole Norton.
painting the old raf building pink, that was an expensive laugh. and the stories about Harry Benson? What a man. Ross Weekes was my form teacher in 1970.

Mentioned in the first entry on this topic I managed to get in touch with Mike Newton and have also been in touch with Allen Bremner. I haven't managed to get in touch with either 'Sid' Thompson or Ian Makin, both of whom I remember well. My mother still lives in Driffield and I get there occasionally to see her. My sister Brenda now lives near York, My brother Eric lives in Nafferton and my younger brother Brian lives in Beverley.
