Susannah Gray to the right????--Rob Spencer to the left????

Robert - oooh!

Is that Chris Ripley and Chris Wilson to the far left too??

I think it’s a Heaney, Liz. Yes, Chris Wilson on far left.

I thought it was me and David Buckhurst at first but it’s a tad grainy

We think its Dan Parker and David Buckhurst.

Fred Moores must be a candidate

Mrs McCauley will be the oldest I should think. She was 100 last Monday

Have we got a recent picture of Mrs McCauley, what a wonderful age.

100 and passed without notice?

Olga Ellis my mother in law will be 100 on July 25.

On behalf of our whole family we are deeply moved by the many posts, comments and memories that have been shared following the sudden death of our mum, Joan Margaret Capper on the night of Thursday 10 June 2021. At 83 years old Mum lived life to the full and to the end. She maintained all her many creative interests in art, music, nature, days out, family and social contacts. She would have been delighted and touched to read the messages on Comberbach Memories from former pupils and friends and we know she enjoyed keeping up with everyone. The village was very important to her. Thank you so much for this celebration of a long and happy life, well-lived.
Stephen and Lisa Capper.

Such a wonderful lady My mum was a dinner lady and we all were taught by her. Our condolences to you and your family x

Stephen and Lisa. Your Mum gave countless kids a wonderful start in life through the school. We’re all in her debt because of it and her legacy will live on for decades to come. Take care of yourselves.

One very very special lady! I absolutely adored her, she will be very missed by so many. Sending lots of love to all the family xxx

What an amazing Lady, she had left CCP when I started in 1984 but taught both Sarah and Jayne my sisters who thought the world of her. Sweet dreams and your legacy will live on forever x

She was a wonderful lady, I am so sorry for your loss x

So many wonderful times, memories, and stories 🌹🌹🌹💕

My deepest condolences to yourself and Lisa. I was very blessed to have had such a warm head teacher with a genuine love for the children, her vocation and the village itself.

We are so sad that mum has gone but I know she would have been thrilled with these messages. I have printed them all off to keep forever. She had such fond memories of Comberbach, as do I. Do you remember the fetes, the maypole dancing, country dancing and the beetle drives. She always told me about getting the coal in for the fires in the old school and I had to run to the little post office next door to buy the boxes of sultanas and currants for 3pm to hand out in cupped hands to all the children. Always positive, always kind and generous, and always interested. She did such good work in Crewe, too. Ian did great with the piano CDs, thank you. By the way I think the picture at the top of here with the girls and guitars with Julie Atherton etc is when they sang Wiggly Worms - does anyone remember that. Huge thanks for the very comforting messages. We are heart-broken but she lived the life she wanted to until the end. much love to you all wonderful friends of mum xxxxx

Such a lovely lady she was my first primary school teacher. I found out from her that she went to Victoria road with my mum and sent me via Facebook a few pics with both of them on. Joan is the reason I’m a member of comberbach memories. She remembered all her pupils and enjoyed reconnecting with them. I will miss her memories and her lovely pics she would share. My condolences to you and your family. X

Really sorry to hear about your mum. I had known her from the mid 70s when William started school. Thinking bout you all and sending special wishes x

Annette Jones. Your mum taught my brother and myself when it was at the old school in Comberbach. Mrs Bradbury was Head and your mum was her deputy. I loved going to school at Comberbach unfortunately you had to move to another Junior school as Comberbach could not accommodate so my brother and myself went to Winnington which was a drastic change as you had to go on bus and the school seemed so big. Your mum will be remembered as very kind and understanding. The first day l remember going home for my lunch and walked back on my own and decided to pick some wild flowers for your mum By the time l reached school it was locked up as l was so late. Your mum happened to see me and came to see why l was so late. I must have given her the flowers and she must have understood and send to me thankyou. I never thought l had done anything wrong. Happy school days thanks to your mum. You were very lucky to have such a special mother.

Fine by me Peter.
