Class of 1948 at Ushaw Moor Primary School

January 21, 2012 1 comment

Hi, am writing on behalf of my friend Val who has mislaid her school photograph. Does anybody by any chance have a school photograph of the class of 1948 at Ushaw Moor Primary School, the photo would have Valerie Knox and Lorna Johnson, Lily West and Miriam Jackson.

Really hoping someone has this and can help out! Thanks again

Ushaw Moor Trumpeters

January 7, 2012 Leave a comment

‘On the 13th April, 1973, a Grand Banquet was held in the Great Hall of Durham Castle to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Club Charter.  Among the guests were the Mayor of Durham, Past President of RIBI the Rev. D. Dick,  District Governor H. Botham and presidents of many neighbouring clubs.  A highlight of the occasion was a fanfare blown by the trumpeters of the Ushaw Moor ACF from the minstrel gallery of the Great Hall to summon the diners to table.  It was an evening that will be long remembered by those present’.

 Extract from Rotary Club of Durham history 

So can anyone give further information about this?

2011 in review

January 1, 2012 Leave a comment

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
