STEPHEN Dixon from Redcar [...].
Stephen says First holy communions were always angelic affairs as this 1970 photo shows. The image features Stephen Dixon (left) and Jimmy Callaghan (right) outside their catholic infants school St Joseph's on Mersey Road, Redcar.
The infants school is no longer there but the houses occupying that site are named St Joseph's Court.
In the background we see the huge Catholic Secondary Modern School Sacred Heart, a school which was demolished a few years ago - the land is owned by the church and is now currently under redevelopment. A brand new Sacred Heart catholic school was built directly opposite the old one on a field on the old Saltscar school playing field.
