Within the site as well as the history of the school you will find a large selection of other information relating to the
Photos from the early 1900's onwards covering all aspects of school life including school photos and sports.
School magazines and Documents relating to school matters.
Also school memories, teachers, reunions and news and emails from old pupils.
Urgent information regarding the Future of Mugs61 website
I started the Mugs61 website about 20 yrs ago for ex-pupils from the early sixties and
because of it’s popularity extended it to include any ex-pupils who attended UpHolland Grammar school.
It remains the top site if UpHolland Grammar is entered in a search engine and has
helped many people to trace old friends or information about relatives that attended UGS or information about the school itself. It still receives hundreds of views weekly.
The website contains loads of information ranging from the history of the school to
photos going back as far as the early 1900’s, school magazines and documents. It would be a shame if all this information was not readily available for anyone to access when required.
My health hasn’t been good recently and along with other family commitments I
am unable to keep running the site and if no other way of keeping the site going is found it will close by the end of the year.
For the Mugs61 website to continue for years to come it requires two things
Firstly it requires someone or several people to take over running the site.. Anyone
taking over the site can do as much or as little with it as they want. More information can be easily added or they could just deal with enquiries from anyone wanting information.
Secondly the site is funded by donations and the money will run out by the end of
the year. Many people use the site but it has been a regular few that have helped with donations.
If all the people who like the site made a small donation it will keep it going for
many years. The cost of the site and other small expenses come to around £200 per year. Also the site could be funded through sponsorship if any local businesses are interested.
I would be interested to hear from anyone with ideas to keep the site
