Thanks for the mention of the bass, however I swapped to the organ in 67 and bought a Hammond (L122)in '70. This along with my second Hammond and Leslie sit in splendid idleness at home. After playing the length and breadth of the UK I took pity on the punters and gave up.
No money; moderate success; lots of memories.

Hi Phil
You guyz were never anonymous! Where are you all now? I know Tim is still bashin' out the blues licks and so is fellow bluesman Tony Crosby who I haven't got round to checking out for many years (Tony, I remember when you got your first Gibson Les Paul and had us all drooling over it - have you still got it?) What's Harry the bassman doing? Didn't you play a mean version of Down in the Valley with Tim on vocals?

It was good to hear of the Lost (Soul Edition) and Salty Dogs again, but why no mention of 20%?
Surely we weren't that anonymous? Or does no one remember Harry Beighton, Paul Atkinson, Tim Disney and myself? (Sorry Keef, you were only a honorary Mundellan.

Thanks to Kamaljit Johal & Steve Adcock I found this web-site. If anyone remembers me -(Judith Naylor) I'd love to hear from you.
Alison Davies, Kamaljit & I all happen to live in different areas of California; so we had a mini reunion a couple of weeks ago.It was like yesterday-but with more wrinkles!
We're looking forward to a trip back to the U.K. for a reunion.

Hello to anyone who remembers me - and sorry.
Thanks to Pete Huggins for pointing me in the direction of this site.
I was an attendee of Mundella from late 1966 until 1971, 3b, 4s2, 5s2 and then the 6th form (maths, physics, chemistry). Still no clue? After wasting my last 2 years at school, I grew up a little and joined the real world, re-taking my 'A' levels and gaining employment with 3M as a research technician. Well, I didn't blow anyone up, so thanks to Mr. Towers, the chemistry teacher.
In the mid-70's, I changed tack, moving into the computer field. I'm still there. I now work as a freelance computer consultant (I've just completed a 2-year spell in Ireland converting mainframe systems to accommodate the Euro).
I remember Gillian Breffitt, Dave Kilner, 'Fred' Law, Phil Towle (were you wicket-keeper? I was left-arm over, medium-quick), Gerry 'Elvis' Kirk, Gerry Grubb, Derek Turner, Russell Smith, Brian Blenkinsop and many others. And Mick Walker - especially Mick Walker "Sanders, you're a fat idle skiver!" (((oh, maybe I do remember THAT John Sanders))).
Not many people know me as 'John' now (no, I'm not on the run). I worked as a consultant for CCN a few years ago and there were 3 'John Sanders' or 'John Saunders' there, and it got very confusing for the poor lass on the switchboard, so I adopted my middle name (Edward). Most people now know me as 'Eddie'.
I am happily married with 2 children (both flown the nest) and still live in Castle Donington, Leigestershire. I am a totally inactive member of Mensa (2 meetings attended in 20 years, and one of those was by mistake - I just happened to be in the same pub at the same time) and my one hobby is tenpin bowling (I am often to be found in AMF Nottingham) although at the moment I am undergoing physiotherapy on a knee injury which prevents me playing.
Oh yes, I STILL support Derby County. (((Now I remember. "DARBO"))).

Receiving news of the March 16th mini get together of the 66-71/73 gang prompted me to take another look at the website. First thing I spotted was an entry from the Oz exile Sue Campbell and in next to no time we are e-mail buddies. Marvellous invention the internet, the October 6 re-union would probably never have happened without it. Anyway enough reminiscing from me...how did last Saturday go, any new faces or breaking news from anyone?.

What a great Website :-) I was a detainee at Mundella from 1966 - 1971.

I have tried, over the years, to get hold of a copy of "Running Waters" which was a poem that we had to write out in Detention. It is the last piece of my Jigsaw in writing about my Mundella years.

I remember many people, Steve Adcock, David Shaw, John Hardy, Ian Squires, Billy Wilkinson, Mick Mellors, Nigel Broomhead, Andy Hutchinson, etc etc and then Jenny Shipcott, Elaine Taylor, Jann Mellors, Jenny Parr, Jackie Smith, Lesley Bishop,
Linda Needham. etc etc Then the staff, Mr Moody, Mr Hodnett, Mr Hoard, Mr Mitchell, Joe Hallam, Toppo Towers, Mick Whacko Walker, Mr Greensmith, Miss Savage, Miss Miles, Chalky White, Mr Jacobs, Mr Southgate, Tilly mad Townsend, etc etc. I remember "Orpheus In The Underworld" The school lunchtime Disco's. 500 Lines for being late for class lololol. Living now in Lincolnshire and having so many great memories of our Mundella. If anyone remembers me, please get in touch :-)

Billy Holloway, I do believe we went to the same primary school! You were in the same year as my brother, Michael, I think. We lived in Warwick St originally, then on Beeston Rd - corner house near the roundabout.
I was in Thoresby at Mundella . Michael went to Glenn Bott, then Forest Fields.

Dear Mr. Adcock (66-73) you say that the next reunion won't be too long, I heard that it's going to be in two years time, dude that is way too long. My dissolute lifestyle is threatening to either kill me or make all of my hair fall out before then. Is there any way you can suss something out sooner. regards David Lamb.
P.S.
Sometimes I wish I'd done a Ms. Titball& changed my name to something nicer like maybe Paul or Steve.

Thanks Julia!! Not embarrassed at all..Why should I be? Being named after a prison isnt exactly something that gave me a start in life... We did overlap by a couple of years and she must have been only a couple of years younger than me. I remember her also because she was a good athlete, winning school events for her house (Hardwick I think). I have vivid recollections of loads of people who were at Mundella the same time as me I'm only sorry I dont recognise your name..Thanks for the comments

Bill Holloway,
I do remember Ruth Titball. She must have been considerably younger than you. I think her era was
68-75. And also .........she changed her surname on leaving school. Hope you feel suitably embarrassed!!

Hi Folks - Bill Holloway here! I started in 65 and left in '70. I used to knock about with Andrew Bowering, Mick Dawkins, Sean Conelly, Mick Wormald, Malcolm and Andrew Batchelor, Marion Ferguson, Joan Innes and loads more. I've just got in touch with Chris Wright and Tim Stevenson who both lived in Dunkirk. What a great website!!
Anyone remember Ruth Titball - Yes that was her name!

By the way I also remember Elaine Tilley - How could one forget her!

Firstly, this message is not from the Steve Adcock who is always organising reunions in the Roebuck. This is from me, the much younger, much better looking, Steve Adcock, who went to Mundella from 1966 to 1973.

Secondly, our year's reunion is being held in the bar at Redhill Leisure Centre, Nottingham on Saturday 6th October 2001, from 7.30pm, onwards.

I have managed to trace about 70 of the 120 people who belonged to our year, at various times, and the vast majority of those should be there, so it will be a good night. The cost will be £1 each, to cover the room hire cost.

It would appear that people are looking at this site and then not leaving a message etc. We don't, therefore, know how to contact you. If this is your year group, please, please, please get in touch, even if you can't make the 6th, because there's bound to be another reunion before too long.
