Linda Rowe (Hayes)



LINDA ROWE (nee HAYES) otherwise known as Rosie!

I came to Risinghill from Moreland Street School if I remember correctly in 1960. I was in the A class until I decided to leave early in 1964 to go to the City Day College at Bunhill Row to do a secretarial course. I was Goal Attack in the Netball team (that's me with the ball in the School photo) and the Choir and have fond memories of the Xmas show that we put on. I remember wearing the most wonderful head dress made by the pupils.

Some school chums that I can recall are: Kerry McGuire, Yvonne Prince, Beverly Austin, Sandra Broadbent, David Banks, Kevin O'Brien, Patricia Reynolds, Linda Stockwell.

My early working life was as a secretary before settling down to marry John and having 3 lovely children. We eventually moved out of London to Surrey where I worked at the University as a Secretary for several years. We now live in Dorset where I have spent the past 20 years as a Homelessness Officer for the Local Authority. Both our sons who have given us grandsons and our daughter, all live close by.

John and I have both retired early and we have just sold our bungalow and bought a Motorhome and will soon be embarking on our travels to see Scotland and then on to Europe! We could be gone for a few years!
