    Hi PA,

    I remember Mr Butler and also remember “Herbert” the large ebony ruler used for treating minor mis-behaviours. I did well in maths so I cannot complain with knowledge imparted by Mr Butler and Mr Burgum and I became a chartered accountant,trained in Birmingham and moved to Shropshire in 1971. It is a very long time ago. Cheers

    Hi Paul,
    I was at Greenmore as a day boy in 1971-3, I also remember Mr. Pye and Mrs. Bellicose. Do you remember Mrs. Milland? . I remember the compound with all the animals. You are so right, the summers were great fun. I’ve got many happy memories. I remember you and your brother Mark, Yours, Simon

    Hi Elaine,
    most of the land in Edgbaston is owned by the Calthorpe Estate. They will develop and build property but do not usually sell the freeholds so they get it back eventually.

    Thank you for putting this on I was only at Greenmore for 2 years from 1969 to 1971 I will be at the reunion on 2nd October so hope to see you there

    It doesnt look anything like it used to but the tall trees along priory road are still there I came to the reunion in 2008 and as you approach the trees it looks so familiar until you see the houses behind

    well done you
