|Elaine Wilson was my name and I attended Scarborough
Girls’ High School from 1958 until 1965. My father was the Barrowcliffe
pharmacist at Wreyfield Drive and we lived on Scalby Road. My brother
Richard Temple Wilson attended Scarborough High School for Boys from 1961
In Sheffield I joined Friends of the Earth in about 1977
and met Karen Flack (now Karen Vitler, born September 1949) who attended
Scarborough Girls’ High School and she invited me to the major reunion
arranged by Carol Clark in 1973!
Our family moved to the southwest edge of Sheffield
April 1968. I attended Sheffield Polytechnic, now Sheffield Hallam
University, from 1970 and gained H.N.D. in Computer Studies with merit.
I worked as a computer programmer, became married, had our first son, and
stopped work. We moved to the southern edge of Nottingham and two
more boys were born. We began to attend the Church of England services
weekly. I was elected the local Conservative Borough Councillor, which
position I held for fourteen years. I attended Nottingham Trent Polytechnic,
now Nottingham Trent University from 1990 and gained a B. Ed. in teaching
maths, with added computing. I began teaching part-time.
Our three boys went to public school in Loughborough
and we moved there. I became the Chairman of their Parents’ Association
until our youngest left. Our oldest son is now an Army surgeon.
Our middle son is a solicitor in Harrogate. Our youngest is a dental
surgeon in Sheffield.
My husband still works full-time and I am telephoned occasionally
to go and help do a bit in the field of maths education. Our house
backs on the National Forest. I enjoy hiking, opera and visiting
