Brian Storey and I started school together in 1951 at Billingham North Infants, we went through school together for the next ten years leaving Billingham Stephenson Hall in 1961, Brian went on to train as a teacher and this photo shows him in his first teaching post, we started at Stephenson Hall in 1958 and of the original staff only three remain in this photo, they are Mary Bassett, Alan Coates and Fred Chapman, all superb teachers.
