    I was also at HHS leaving in 1967 and in fact was bowling to David Frost in that cricket match. I remember all those names in mentioned by Bob Rees and probably a few more if my memory was jogged.1963 winter was spent skating on the pond, and breaks spent playing 'hot rice'. I was Hodges 1 and younger brother Nigel was Hodges 2. Mike Brodribb was running a tea room near Rye at one point, but that was some years ago.

    is in the distance and if the photo was to pan right you would see the cliff edge and the beacon of which is ignited to start many a bonfire celebration in the town.

    I worked on the reconstruction of the burnt out timber cottage ( the one with round bay windows ) and placed the shoreing under them, day after fire, as an apprentice carpenter for Hepple & Sweetman, Builders of Priory Street, on demolision we shored up the Two brick buildings either side to stop them collapsing in on top of the empty shell

    It looked so much more attractive in those days Today it just looks so boring.

    Is that the top end of Vale Road to the right of the picture? That's where I grew up. Would love to see more past photos of Silverhill to jog my memory. Some things I wonder if I imagined!

    My family also lived here for years. They took in fishermen when they were being sent for hard labour in Lewis because they were made homeless by the council and would sleep illegally in the huts. They were forced to sell for £25 when they built the Bourne road. Also had The Norfolk Hotel and New Moon Inn All Saints Street. Also 117 All Saints Street. New Moon was set on fire because they also took in homeless and the council hated our family. Like a lot of old families from the old town, they were treated very badly and Council tried for years to get rid of old families, even cutting water supply until Countess Waldergrave helped them with Clive Vale reservoir.

    I went to Mount Pleasant Infants in Manor Road after the closure of St. Mary in the Castle School. From then I went to the Junior School in Mount Pleasant Road, then to Elphinstone School in Parker Road. I left Hastings in 1956. I remember a teacher in the Junior as Mrs. Longhurst. Very strict. Miss Hale was my teacher at Elphinstone, the Headmaster Mr. Hopkins, the Headmistress Miss Draper.

    Have only just found your comment of over 2 years ago in response to Harry's Old Town Bingo Chris. I was fascinated to read it because your grandfather Lot was my grandfather's uncle. My grandfather was Sam Watford, better known as George who was son of Tom Watford, Lot's brother. I am busy writing finishing touches to my family history in the form of a trilogy, a copy of which which I hope will be lodged locally in Hastings in a few places in the next six months. It has taken me ten years to complete!

    Mixed feelings about my 2 years in what was known as The Annex.... on one hand we Mr Sewell , an excellent

    teacher who always made you feel comfortable ...... on the other hand we had Ms Shanahan who didnt waste an opportunity to belittle and humiliate you for trivial mistakes . Even so I still felt pity for the kids in Mrs

    Longhursts class .... she was a terrifying harpy .....happy days ? some of them !
