Clipping The Hedge At St Annes

A Memory of Bagshot

My dad, Eric Berry, used to clip this hedge - BY HAND!
When we're little, things always seem bigger than they really are, but my recollections of watching my Dad clip this hedge on the days he did the gardening at St Anne's church, were pretty accurate. It really is as big as I remember!
I also recall going to St Anne's Hall ( a bit further back down the hill?) with my Mum, to collect our ration books. At the bottom of the hill was Fortuna's Ice Cream Parlour - I can still remember the lucious creamy taste! Yum!
