Tim Moose Bruce… I read somewhere that it was taken down and shipped to America to be rebuilt.
Ian Quinnell… I seem to remember going there, after it had closed as a school, with a number of other pupils from Priory Road to help clear and tidy the grounds. Would have been around 1970. Anyone else from Priory Road remember this?
Wendy Weaver… We went to a wedding reception here. It seemed a lovely venue.
Chris Meachen…. Mum used to help raise funds for it, & I can remember going to various ‘fun activity’ events. Unlike the usual fires, this one was left with some windows open so the weather & pigeons could make it uninhabitable. Damned shame to have watched it decay over the years…
Mike Waghorne… I remember Westridge building contractors putting the blue hoarding up
Steve Mann… Had my wedding reception here – great venue
