READER Gary Pidwell from Newton Abbot brought this photo into the office and hopes it might jog the memories of a few people.
‘It’s a panto staged by pupils of Highweek Boys’ Secondary School in 1959,’ he said.
‘It was staged by the music teacher Mr Griffiths.
As a boys-only school the female parts were played by boys, me included. I can’t remember all the names but some people might remember pupils called Luscombe, Yeoman, and Colgate.
‘I think among this lot is one Peter ‘Lenny’ Windsor, who went on to be a professional comedian.’
Mr Pidwell left the school the following year aged 15 and began working at Imperial Furnishers before going on to work at a garden centre on the Penn Inn Roundabout.
He thinks the school closed sometime in the 1980s.
‘Times were very different back then -the school was a tough one and the teachers weren’t frightened about beating us!’ he added.
