By Paula Sloane

This is a photo of the celebrations on the retirements of husband and wife teachers, Mrs. Val Rainey and Mr. Hugh Rainey, also Mrs. Maureen Bottle, at the Wickford Junior School, Market Road on the 19th July 1991.

Mr. Hugh Rainey had taught at the school for 27 years. Mrs. Val Rainey and Mrs. Maureen Bottle had both taught at the school for 23 years. In the early years of their teaching there were 43-45 children in each class.

In their last years of teaching Mrs. Rainey and Mrs. Bottle taught 3rd year (now Year 5) and Mr. Rainey taught year 6.

The photo is taken on the school field.

Can you recognise anyone in the photo?

I know the Rainers - he has a jazz band at the Rettendon Lodge, and lives up Brock Hill still.
