My mum Margaret Gilham has wonderful memories from the Wedges camp in 1954/55. She's keen to trace anyone else who was there around that time. She mentioned comforting a girl in a thunderstorm and also a school song based around the acronym of CHRISTMAS. She'd be keen on a reunion, I'm sure.

To Mr Nostalgic

I would be very interested to see your photos and other memorabilia of the Wedges camp school. I was there for only two terms, autumn and winter 1950/51 or maybe a year later - I cannot remember exactly now.

Hi again .Thanks for getting in touch. I was there for 3 terms. Sept.1951 to August 1952. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have as I said Many prints of old postcards. The official council book with many pictures. Newspaper cuttings and schedules etc for when I was there. I can print them all out and forward them to you. It will be no worry Terry.
