  I went to Frederick Birds School, Coventry from about 1956 to 1959. I left Coventry in 1959. I am now living in Praze-an-Beeble, Cornwall.

In early December 2005 I returned to Coventry to celebrate my uncles 100th birthday (Ken Jones of Earlsdon). It was the first time I had been back for over 12 years. I also managed to visit my old home in Powell Road (off Burlington Road).

When I lived there I had a very close friend called Barry Williams (who was affectionately known to us as 'Podge') who lived at no.77 Burlington Road (almost opposite the corner shop - no longer a shop - once owned by my grandmother- name of Ward).

When I left Coventry in 1959 (my father relocated from Daimler to a company in Plymouth, Devon) I lost contact with Barry. I heard the family had moved out of Coventry some years later but I always wondered what happened to him. Another friend I recall from those times was called Barry Aldrich (not sure of spelling). Does anyone know the whereabouts of either of these two?
  My name is Brenda Elkins I was born in Coventry in 1956. I attended Whitley Abbey School from 1967 until 1973. I have kept my maiden name.

I moved to Canada approximately 30 years ago and have lost touch with all my old school friends. I now live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and would be very interested in getting in touch with friends who remember me. I would particularly like to hear from : Rohila Hamid, Hilary Johnson, Annette Ward, Brennan Eldridge, Richard Keyes, Tony Forster and Tom Kelly.
