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.

Dave, Mick (Driff School 67 to 71)and Tim Newton, all of ex RAF Driffield fame from 68' to 75' Anyone remember Alan Bremner, Alan Coates, the Makins, Proudlocks,etc etc? We all have great memories of all the pubs particularly the Railway Tavern, Bell, Red Lion, Highwayman etc. Are they all still there?

Yes I remember the Makins & Proudlocks. Ian, Glen and Alan have all moved away. I was at Driff School 1969 onwards. The Proudlocks are still in Driffield. One works up at the Alfred Bean. The other I believe works at the Sports Center. Do you remember Marion Thomson who once went out with Micheal Bull and was with the darts team from the Buffet (Doris and Alec. Do you also remember the Carter's Dave and Mick who were in Scouts and they had a sister if I remember correctly was called Helen?

Spent summers working in Twydales and Broadacres turkey farms.....yuk! How about Lesley Evans, Candy something who lived near the railway station, Ron Budzak and Alan Coates

Hi Sid, I'm still in the good old RAF, also married (26 years) with 1 son, Paul (24) who is currently doing a degree at Sheffield Uni. Currently living in Belgium and having a great time quaffing the excellent beers over here. Do you have any idea what happened to Alan Coates?

Hi Sid,
I don't remember you being musical, Dave Robbo was the guy who played the guitar as I remember. As for me, I'm still in the good old RAF, I got married to miriam whilst working in Malta in 76', we have one son Paul who is 24 years old and seems to be a professional student at Sheffield Uni. Do you have any idea what happened to Alan Coates?
