Top School

A Memory of Blaengwynfi

I remember doing the transition from the infants school below the British Legion and going to the "Top school" just by the now defunct St Gabriel's church for the first time and paying 1d bus fare to get up there from my home in Jersey Road after going to "Jobey's" for some sweets. I was flabbergasted to see that the boys and girls were separated, especially at play time and that the first and second years were kept in the top playground. Had a great friend Roger Woods and Graham Bush was another friend, along with Wyn Davies (Jumbo), classmate and Alun Richards.
