I loved the time I spent at Lendrick but if I am honest there were times when I did not, but them times passed as they always do and life goes on you look back and say oh well but not take it to heart its a hurdle of life which by now we are used to, after all we did go to Lendrick and we are the people who we are be it thanks to  Lendrick or not. We are all getting older we have to keep in check that Lendrick was in the past and its only memories that we bring to the present day how many people have driven pass Lendrick and not gone in to visit.

I have but just to stand and look and remember was enough after all the picture one saves in there mind is enough and will never change over time its history now and Lendrick is no more be it you live a few miles from it or on the other side of the world Lendrick will always be our Lendrick. All we can do now is look back and have a cheeky grin on ones face as we know we were there and is it not that that counts."

Hello, my name is John Berwick. I was at Lendrick from 1974 to 1978. My nick name was Jay Bee and I still use it to this day. I'm now 40 years old; God, I can't believe I'm that old now LOL. I had a great time when I was at Lendrick I did visit back in the 80s twice I think but it was a no notice thing just popped in and more or less popped out again. I have great memories of the place in fact I was in the Falklands during the war in 1982 and I used to think about my time at Lendrick made me smile in bad times you can say, I think i even wrote to the school when I was down there let people know that I was still alive and was thinking about them. That school was a great place and will treasure it in my memory for life. if memory serves me right they had a reunion in 1983 or 84 but I was back in the Falklands again I wish I had made it but maybe, just maybe, there will be another one. If so I would love to come see old friends and teachers; doubt there will be many alive now. Well I'm still alive. I'm still not married but have two kids boy and girl as you can see by the pic attached. I would be grateful if you would make my e/mail address free to anyone who wishes to get in touch with me; I live in Edinburgh so if anyone wants to meet me or write to me please feel free.

Yours sincerely,
John Berwick

 Well hello Ian

I don?t know or I?m not sure if I remember you from Lendrick Muir been a few years now but your name is familiar. do you remember me john BERWICK a.k.a. jay bee I was there from 1974 to 1978 3 and a half years to me exact a few names and nicknames that come to mind are Monkey, Peanut, and Findi and a guy called Shelton Waters if I?m correct and a few others that are in the school webpage. I?m 40 now have two kids b/g 11yrs old and 9 yrs old I still live in Edinburgh I was in the royal air force for 6 and a half yrs from 79 to 85 came out had a few jobs took me a while to getting use to being a human being again served in northern Ireland and the Falkland so I had a few bad memories but I like to think I?m ok now but you never know. After I left the air force I had a few jobs then when I was 35 I went to collage and got my city in guilds in electronics so I?m into servicing things like that. the only two people I ever bumped into from Lendrick were Nicky Kirwin and Alison Coleman. Nicky was away back in 1982 I think and I last seen Alison around the same time I think I seen them when I was home on leave. But anyway how are you and what are you doing you must get back and let me know. The last time I heard from Lendrick was back in 82 or 83 I think there was a reunion or some thing but I was serving in the Falklands then and could not make it well I was 8000 miles away but I wish I could have made it. Pardon me but how did you get my e/mail address was it from the school webpage as I only found that yesterday. I seen quite a few names that I remember there and some pics. I have great memory?s of the place and am very sad that it has closed, a strange thing was that I heard it changed to a school for dyslexic kids well when I was 35 I found out that I was dyslexic small circles I think. Anyway, I won't rabbit on anymore I do look forward to hearing from you."

"and"

"Do you remember Ana-Marie Cummins she came from Callender she went out with Danny Byrn and when he left Lendrick i went out with her. Do you remember the phrase 'fag runs'. and the forced church parades with Rev McConkey. We all used to have to walk down to church every Sunday in school uniform. I use to hang out with Danny, Findi, and John Reece. Here is a pic of how I look today and one of me in the R.A.F. back in the 80s. Hope they are of some good Ian, talk with you later bye jaybee

Danny, John Reece, and Ian Douglas (Findi) broke into the Beek's flat. John Berwick took the blame! Colin Webster and Derek (Deek) Walker gave him a kicking as a result. John also thought that Colin Webster was jealous of Ana-Marie Cummins.
