Just to show how far-reaching the message board is, here are a few regulars and 2 of them are ‘watcher’s’ every day, as they love to keep in touch with old Hebburn: John Conway and his wife Stella nee Forster in Canada, and Gerry Roberts in the USA. Stan as we know regularly posts on the board.
Stella Forster attended Clegwell at the same time that John attended St Aloysius. They were an item in those days (1958) so John would leave Aloysius at 4pm and run all the way to Clegwell to walk Stella home up the High Rd. As me and my mates walked home to Grasmere/Windermere Cres we'd pass Leslies Sportsfield and there was John walking Stella home. They married in 1965 which is 55 years ago.
