Jay Mason added (December 2011): "... this looks like the bottom playground".
John Kennedy added (Feb. 2014): "... I am still in touch with the teacher Miss Pauline Williams. In late January 2014 Miss Williams celebrated her 100th birthday. I was pleased to be able to send her a card. She now lives in a care home in Malvern, having left her home in Ross on Wye. I remember her travelling each day on the Ross Monmouth train. She left Lydbrook School in 1957 to teach in Ross. My sister Mar y(deceased 2007) is right in the middle".
John Kennedy added (Feb 2015): "... Miss Williams passed away in January 2015, two weeks before what would have been her 101st birthday. I was able to attend her funeral at the Forest Crematorium".
