Long after my days at the Downs, Graham - I left in 1960 - but you were presumably the younger brother of Margaret and Karen Marum was presumably the younger sister of David, both in my class in 59-60.

Hi Len, Yes I am the younger brother of Margaret Syrett, and the only thing about Karen Marum was that she changed her name to Collington half way through school - probably her mother remarried like mine did. By the way did you used to work at Whitehawk on the buses?  So did I!

Marraige breakups were almost unheard of back in the '60s, that's why I remember Graham and Karen so well from my class; so different from today. I loved Downs School and because of that can remember almost every name and face in the class -how I wish we could all go back, can't believe I am in my 57th year. Always loved the Christmas week and play at school. Sighh.....
