I have very fond memories of Barnt Green. My sister went to Woodruff School between 1937 and 1942 and I was there between 1945 and 1948; my short stay was due to the Principle, Miss Jackson, deciding that she no longer wanted any boys beyond the age of 8, I think this was due to her age. I also remember an excellent teacher by the name of Miss Mathews and others whose names I have now forgotten. I have happy memories of visiting the Cattle Market on a Wednesday and going with the lorry drivers to collect the animals in the morning. Then in the afternoon taking them off to the various slaughter houses. Also in the winter going sledging down the Bankies! This was the hill beside Woodruff School and also of course down Beacon Hill on the Lickeys. I lived in Barnt Green between 1940 and 1961 so if anyone reading this is also of this time there, please write via this site. I would be very interested, especially as I can remember so many names from that period.
