In 1970 Nobel School (the original Telford Rd site) started a School Council . This was run entirely by 6th formers. I cycled to Walkern to arrange for Wright’s fizzy drinks to be delivered to the school to be sold at our fledgling tuck shop. Lovely drinks with a good choice of flavours.

Re Wrights of Walkern cider.
We bought a house in Wright’s Orchard, Aston in 1977. It was said to be the orchard for Wrights of Walkern and we had the last remaining apple tree. The apples were profuse and great to eat or cook with the rather grand name of Peasgood Nonsuch a variety produced during Victorian times. We saved tree but sadly after we moved the tree disappeared. We are now growing a new tree of the same variety so the legend continues.
