The Ilson Bygones Facebook page has been in discussion over an old school teacher at Hallcroft School.
This photo, taken in 1968, shows the art teacher posing for a class photograph. Facebook user Joan Polak commented: ‘He was a lovely teacher, so I was thinking if we could find him, it would be nice to invite him to the reunion organised by the Hallcroft Facebook group.’
Many other nice comments about Mr G T Hughes feature underneath the picture, including ex-students agreeing that he was their favourite teacher. Hallcroft School, Ilkeston closed in 1997. The reunion is planned for September 20 and will take place at Gladstone Lodge, Ilkeston.
