Flamingo Land 1978

It’s good to start the year by looking back  -especially if you are looking right back to Flamingo Land 1978. Not something I intend to do a lot of – but when you find something old, it reminds you how important it is to think long term, invest in relationships and stay in touch with people even when you aren’t on facebook and are pretty rubbish at christmas cards.

Taken in summer 1978 on a Kodak Instamatic; not bad to say they are nearly 40 years old – and have weathered the storm probably better than some of my classmates – I hope they are all happy and healthy; we had some great times and I remember this day as one of the best!

Roundhay School, 5th form class of ’79

I think this was the summer before our O Levels; probably all aged 14 or 15, some where to leave the following year, others to stay on and do A levels at Roundhay, leaving aged 18 in 1981.

Where are you now Paul Dowson, David Waring, Janet Williams, Nicky Hurst, Martin Smaller, Arthur, Louise and Anna?
