Welcome to the Old Uffs' Home Page


Welcome, this site is meant to jog a few memories from our dim and distant past of Willesden.

I know it's a long time ago but........scan the pages, shown on the left, and if these provoke any thoughts 
please let the Old Uffs know.  For example perhaps you can add some entries to the "Who's Who" page or
you have  some interesting photographs or School Magazines - then all would be appreciated.   Thanks.
