Jane Hicks and Jen Hutcheson at Talyllyn on a day out 1966

Jane and her family are on the left of the picture, her brother is in the grey coat at the front.I'm with my mum and younger brother. Jane was one of my 'best friends'. Like me, she arrived late at DWS so we were natural allies. Jane had some 'street cred'. We all thought her cousin was Tony Hicks from The Hollies (a top 1960s pop group). Surprisingly, I also had some 'street cred' having Mary Whitehouse as an aunt ...well, maybe not exactly 'street cred' in my case! This slide transparency shows us all having a walk around the lake, probably after a sunday lunch at the Tynycornel hotel This was a real treat and a respite from 'Rhino'(roast beef) and the thick apricot tart, smothered with condensed milk, which was our regular Sunday fare at school.

    Confession Time.....I did have a cousin called Tony Hicks......but he wasn't the same one as Tony from the Hollies. He did come from Stockport as well. I used it to gain street cred but ended up with egg on my face when the truth came out. Sorry Girls....I hope you can forgive me. This is a lovely picture and we look so very young. Jen and I were great friends and good company for each other.
