This week’s Memory Lane is back in Thurnscoe – with kind thanks to the Thurnscoe Local History Group and in particular Mr Cory Garner.

HERE IS a shot of the village’s Alms Houses on the High Street. This was taken around 1955 – and Cory assures us the accommodation has been improved since!

* Ex-Mexborough Grammar School pupil Alan Shaw contacted us about a recent photograph featured in Memory Lane! He named all but three of the pupils on the 1961 school picture published last week. They are (top, from left): Helen Stephenson, Janet Davis, Graham Billups, ?, David Henderson, Suzanne Rawl, Roslyn Beavers, Reg Atwell, Stella Coleman, William, Cook, Maureen Travers, Jean Carter.
