Reed Ward, Stockton & Thornaby Hospital c1949

Peter Weston’s birthday party in Reed Ward, Stockton & Thornaby Hospital c1949.

L-R: Sister Morton, Nurses Colclough, Burrell, Haig and Reed. This photograph certainly shows a different level of staffing from that we experience now; interestingly my mum (Ida Wilson nee Colclough – State Registered Nurse at Stockton & Thornaby Hospital) had a cutting from the Hartlepool Mail of Peter’s wedding, many years later so happily he recovered.

Class 5b, Richard Hind Senior School c1964

Can anyone help fill in the missing names. I have guessed a few but would love to fill in the gaps. I remember that punishment was rife for any minor offence and each teacher had his own method. The PE teacher would make the last three getting changed bend over and get a plimsoll across the bum, the English teacher would do the same for his spelling tests and if you misbehaved in woodwork class you would get a large squirt of water on the front of your trousers, all good fun.
Back row: Norman Stephenson, ? Baron, Simpson ?, ??, ??, Jeff Gillson, Archer ?

As I remember.. front row 2nd left to middle is Lilian Kennedy, 5th left is Anne Walker and to the right of the teacher is Dorcas Charlton.
Centre row… 10th left is Glen Walker (I believe he emigrated to Canada) and back row…

Woolworths Staff

I believe this photograph was taken in the early 1950s as my mother Eileen Southall, 14th from either left or right of the photo looks to be in her 20s. She was born in 1928 and has lived in Norton for most of her life.

I don’t know any other names, maybe others can help put names to faces.
