Hello and welcome to the forum! I only started at Balshaw's in 1958, but I was (and still am) great friends with Barbara, the daughter of Hilda Baron, who later became Hilda Ratcliffe. Hilda died almost two years ago, aged 89, she was a lovely lady. Barbara lives in Canada, incidentally.
Another of my "old-timer" pals is one Dorothy Blackwell (nee Gardner), who attended Balshaw's at around that time. She was 89 last week, and we are in regular touch as we worked together many years ago. I also remember the teachers, Hilditch, Bennison, Rahill, and Bull, plus Mr Oldland whom I always thought quite scary!
