Memory Lane: What happened to Mr Hughes?

editorial image

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.
