  • I was thrilled to see these photos from when I resided on Canvey by the beautiful Thames… brings back memories. Thank you so much for sharing them with all. Gay

  • Great photos – brings back a lot of memories. George -Please Email me and let me know what you are doing. I still live on Canvey. And anyone else. The only comment about the footie pic is “did we really have legs like that and did we really wear footie boots like that”

  • Hello to Gay and Alan. I’ve posted on Friends Reunited a copy of the programme for the final of the Benfleet Shield. (Does it still exist anywhere?). Still got the medal. And if you read this Gay, do you remember you were my country dancing partner at Long Road School. (Does country dancing still exist as well?)

  • OOhhhh! Mr Hall!! Had such a schoolgirl crush on him!! Even when he invited us to slap him with the plimsoll, I always let him smack me rather than hurt him!!! Can’t see it happening nowadays!! LOL!!

  • Mr Moran was headmaster of the Junior School part when I started there in 1966, i was in Mrs Payne’s class in one of the prefabs. People I remember are Hazel Brown, Debra Carter, Carolyn Campbell, Kerry Taylor, Kerry Thomas and more I cannot name, maybe Karen Scarff, I have a picture of us all in the Nativity play in 1967, I was a narrator, does anyone remember any of the people, my maiden name was Alison Johnson.

  • From memory I think the girl on the far left of the middle row is Linda Benfield.  While I no longer live on Canvey Mum is still there alive and kicking at 92, must be the air.

    Great to see picture, thanks Tony.

  • I attended Long Road School from 1960 till 1966. I remember Mr. Colvert and Miss Gosling and Mr Moran. Miss Gosling had previously taught my sister there too and my parents at the,William Read School.
    Children in my class were Gail Bowman, Gillian Delieu, Tommy Bugg. My name was Frances Barnard.

  • I remember Mr Moran and Miss Gosling. I distinctly remember the poetry classes of Mr Moran. he encouraged us to write non-rhyming poetry, particularly about Fireworks and Christmas. We also had special tins of coloured pencils to decorate the ‘posh’ copy we had to make in our best handwriting. Miss Gosling retired in 1969 and I was in her final class. She could be fearsome!
