ANOTHER name has been put to the faces of these people at the opening of King Edward VI School’s Chapman Gallery.

Former Design and Technology teacher Ken Moore previously contacted us to tell us that he is pictured far right in the Images of yesteryear photograph from December 1986, while the Head of the department at the time, Trevor Downing, is third from left, former Headteacher Michael Duffy is third from right, and one of his predecessors, George Chapman, is second from right.

Now former county council officer and Morpeth Lion Chris Offord has informed us that Jimmy Purvis, who was Chairman of the Parents’ Association, is on the far left.
