The Old Club House

A Memory of Addiscombe

I remember the old club house school. I lived in Coleridge Road and I went to the Ashburton High School, now pulled down, they have a new school there now but the fire station is still there, also the corner shop oposite the fire station is still there, it used to be the post office and inside the shop he had rows of jars of sweets. I came to Australia in 1962 so we are talking over 50 years now.

Oh Yes I remember the Club House, but no one else seems to, I thought I was imagining it, I liked it there it was a huge House, and it had big class rooms and a big wooden staircase, and if I remember rightly it over looked the playing fields oh I am so glad you remember too my name was Genese McBride in 1959 ish, then went on to Ashburton Girls School.
