The Friendship Club, and St Johns Sunday Evening's.

Do any of you reprobates remember The Friendship Club? It was a youth club somewhere in the town which I attended a few times. Quite good for dancing as they played lots of Buddy Holly and Eddie Cochrane stuff.

More staid was St Johns ( Revd Copplestone) where the girls used to serve up fabulous sandwiches, but the entertainment was more sobering. At one time I was on the Committee with Mr Sackville, the lovely Joan Morgan, I think Gus Lynch as well? They organised a very good trip to Liverpool just before I left.
Some (unkind) students nicknsamed Joan Morgan 'The Lobster' on account of a very bright scarlett coat which she used to wear. A very nice girl though, I often wonder what became of her. Mr Sackville was a very sober man who only ever drank hot water, but he was very kind. He once gave us a bit of a lecture on the evils of alcohol.

Did it work for you Trevor?

No, it didn't. What did for me with alcohol was two years on a ship with an all Scots crew, and whiskey a frequent cargo. I cant even smell the stuff now without feeling ill.

I still like a decent beer, I mean a decent one not the mass produced rubbish the big boys turn out. A glass of New Zealand sauvignon blanc, or a gin and tonic.

I'm a bit surpised none of my contemporaries seem to remember the friendhip club.

Other than Jack and Don.....friendship appears to be a lost cause on this website..........The site is all about former College students...With a very limited response to all posts....Wake up!!! Or!!!!!! The many memories we can swap will just disappear.....That would be really sad for our former college. Crying or Very sad

Surely.....We should all remember our former college as the friendship club..We really are a dying breed....Our former profession as wireless officers is dead..but our memories are still alive........73 (best wishes) Ray

Hello Trevor...Clearly you have many memories of our college days...Please post again...It could be the catalyst that keeps this sinking ship afloat. Regards Ray
