    So very sad to hear of Mr Carruthers passing. He is very fondly remembered by former pupils from Townfield. Who often recall in the group how he was their "best teacher ever" due to the support, guidance and fun he brought to the classroom. God bless Sir and rest in peace xx From all at Townfield Photos and Memories Facebook Group.

    Mr Carruthers was the best teacher I ever had. If only all teachers were like him. He was my teacher for the last 2 years at Townfield school, I left 1980. He made me believe I could go to University and I did. I am eternally grateful for having him as my teacher and for his early encouragement. RIP Mr Carruthers.

    As a former student I have very fond memories of Mr C. Some teachers stay with you for life and he was one of them. Rest in Peace Mr C and thank you.

    Mr. Carruthers was definitely one of my all time favourite teachers. I was in his class 1990-1991. He had a way of making the dullest subject interesting and enjoyable. He was compassionate, funny and incredibly likeable by everyone at Townfield. After leaving for high school I would often drop in on my way home for a chat and he always made time and never seemed put out. Please pass on my love to his family, friends and colleagues.

    Dear Jane and family, So sorry to hear of your loss. It seems like most people on the Townfield Facebook group thought Mr. Carruthers was the best teacher they ever had. I never had the luck of being taught by him, but both my sisters did, and they also thought he was their favourite teacher. Victoria Clark, Sue Ashburner and Fiona Cuthbertson (from BHS) asked me to pass on their condolences to you. Thinking of you all, Sonia Chou. x
