HOW sad to hear of the demise of Bispham Boys’ Brigade (Gazette, January 30).

I was brought up in a cotton/mining town where Sunday school and church twice on Sundays, and Brownies, was the norm.

How proud I was seeing my cousin Billy in his Boys’ Brigade uniform blowing his silver bugle for all his worth on the many occasions the band was in the various parades.

What simple pleasures and times we really did have.

Alas, they are gone for ever.

With this, and the rebuilding of Highfield, there is a real future for schools in this area, let’s hope the kids respect the new facilities.

I think it’s a wonderful idea and think the pupils will benefit from it greatly.

I was a pupil at this school just over 10 years ago, however the changes in resources which we will see are light years ahead of what I had, only 10 years ago.

Let’s face it, technology is the present and the future and we all have to move with the times. Anyone who stands still will be left behind.

It’s sad really, as a lot of what has been knocked down to build all this, were my favourite rooms. I could never really focus in a modern environment, but I could in the older rooms.

Great to see, but how did they chose to invest in this school and not others?
