Hi,

my thanks to G.K. Davis who has, and does, host the pictures, which are attributed to him, on his web site @ SunGreen.co.UK and to those who provided them to him.

I would much appreciate any other photographs of the school, or if you can help provide any missing names.

I am also currently looking for ANY old photographs of Stroat, or the people who have lived here, over the years – with details of which houses they lived in etc. Right up to the present time.

Also any stories and anecdotes of people or events pertaining to Stroat – The more comprehensive this site can be made for those who live in Stroat or have lived here in the past the more interesting it will become to them and also to visitors and those with a passing interest in the hamlet.

The site will in time increasingly become a memorial and In Memoriam to those who have passed, giving a touchstone to the history of both the hamlet and the immediate area.

Sadly, for want of recording the facts, we bury our history at every funeral, death takes memories to the grave that are of value to the future!

Your help in any way would be appreciated, particularly if you can provide other picturef of classes at the school or at the moment the names of the 1925 class below. Thank you to anyone who can help.

The above photo appeared in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley Review with the following text:

“… The pretty girl extreme right, second row up … is my aunt Nancy Smith aged 9. Nancy went on to become both Alvington carnival queen and ‘Queen of the Forest’ in 1935 and a very keen actress in local amateur drama productions. This talent was somewhat thwarted by being the youngest daughter, and having to look after ailing parents and later her brother. However, her local appearances continued, and after becoming Mrs Rickards, Nancy joined Woolaston W.I. and continued her acting career with them. She lived in Woolaston all her life and her last home was just yards from the house where she was born in Parkhill Lane. Nancy had a phenomenal memory, and if she was still alive today would be able to name every child in the photograph and tell you stories about them!”. – Nancy’s family lived at the bottom of Parkhill Lane (near Edge Farm) Trevor Hill was unfortunately killed in a motorcycle accident.
