photo, taken at Bream Court Farm, is published here as a tribute to Miss
Joyce Parry who died in April 2006. Miss Parry was originally from Wales
1940's after training as a teacher. She remained as a teacher in Bream
until Bream Secondary Modern School closed in 1973. She taught many generations
of children in Bream. I believe she then taught at Whitecross, Lydney.
Miss Parry, as she was known to
Bream, also took part in many Bream activities including the annual Pantomimes
at Parkend Road Chapel. - Geoff Davis, April 2006.
Wayne Ryan added (April 2008): "Miss Joyce Parry did teach Cooking at Whitecross School during its early period 1974-76. I think she filled in for absent teachers as well. I lived in Bream from October 1971 to 1982. Shame to see that she has passed away".
Thanks also to Karen Kinnish who added (Oct 2008): "Miss Joyce Parry, also taught me cooking at Whitecross School Lydney. I left in 1983, and she was still there then".
Jane Elson added (December 2018): "... Miss Parry was still teaching at Whitecross in the mid 1980s when I was there. She taught us cookery and music. Got to know her better when my sister moved to Bream in the early 1990s - lovely lady".
