45 years ago I attended Manchester Polytechnic on a Graphics Course. After graduation people went home or to pursue careers. AS this was pre- Facebook very few people kept in touch if at all. I have recently found 3 people I wnt to college with all those years ago. If anyone else who attended the Art and Design courrse at tha time is interested maybe we can exchange emails and possibly meet in Manchester. It would be great to get a group together.

I am trying to locate David Drury, originally from Kirkby, last known to live in Salford. David and I were married September 29, 1970. I was 16 and he 20. (Sounds so silly now). Would love to know how he is doing.
I would like to hear guys memories who use to go Croft Club in Leicestershire on Monday nights during the early seventies when they had a band on + a Disco.I feel lucky to have experienced it saw many bands before they became famous.I heard different kinds of music: Rock; Folk; Pop; Country&Western.It was a wicked night out that was incredible value for money.Raymond Froggatt was quite a regular he must have been cheap haha.Seriously he was liked by the locals but many bands we saw went on to be stars like Whitesnake; Saxon; Hawkwind; Edison lighthouse; Lonestar; there were many new bands who played there and went on to be stars.I liked that Monday night because it was different kinds of bands each week then they had a decent Disco to which I also enjoyed.I think even Aker Bilk of Jazz even did a couple of gigs too. Songs are a good memory link when I hear a song on the radio I remember where I liked hearing it.I think guys will enjoy chatting about where we went in our early 20s.
I was a teenager in the 70s and while the music was incredible-Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, Elton John etc etc etc the state of Britain at that time was dire. I was a student in London in the mid seventies and it was dirty, boring and if you wanted a sandwich you risked food poisoning. There seemed to be strikes all the time (about what?). No Technology at all-seems amazing that we also had no mobile phones, computers etc etc. How on earth did we function. Life was a lot simpler and slower. TV-Minder was all I can remember. I think its a much better world now especially in the UK
