Beryl Newton is my cousin. I love this photo, as this is how I remember her: full of life, a great sense of humour, and full of stories about her overseas trips. I live in Australia, but hold very dear memories of Beryl.

Beryl Newton (or Mrs Newton, as we called her!) was my first teacher at Holmesdale CP, in 1958. She was a very nice lady!

Miss Newton was a lovely lady. When my Mum died in 1960 I was 11 and in my last year at Holmesdale, when she found out I had lost my Mum she came and held me in her arms for a long time ( something you would not be allowed to do now ) she really was the kindest, sweetest lady.

This is my photo. Beryl Newton became a family friend. 2 of the boys in this photo, myself and Richard Cripps, were privileged to speak at Beryl's funeral, about 3 years after we held a reunion (2008) in the former school's building which Beryl and some 36 pupils came to. Me front left, Richard front 3rd from left.

For Penny Stapley, Comment 1, and Roger Campbell Comment 3, above. I was in Beryl Newton's class when my father died in 1956. She wrote my mother a wonderful letter, and they became lifelong friends. She ended the letter: "if there is anything that I can do to help you, or Peter, please do let me know. Remember me to Peter (I was off school for a while) and give him my love."
