I would be interested in the Birkdale Central as my mother went there.  It is now called Birkdale High School in Windy Harbour Road.

Is the offer still available?   I am interested in the article on Christ Church School.  Will reimburse for the copying and postage costs, possibly via a relative in Southport.

Hello Bob,

Sorry I have not been on the forum for a couple of weeks but I have been on my holidays.  Back now and raring to go...

The bad news is Jane is no longer on the committee so no help from that quarter but the good news is that I am still on the committee and I go in the library once a week to host a Society family history help desk.

Let me know what you are interested in and I will get onto it.  You can contact me by IM on the forum if you like it is secure.

Regards Dotty
