Boynton Hall, near Bridlington
During the war (1939-1945) the French Convent school, run by Catholic nuns, was evacuated from Hull to Boynton Hall.
I remember the day war broke out - my sister was sent to Boynton - she was very happy there.
When I was 5, I joined my sister - there was a small number of boys there.
It was a very well run school in which the interest of the children came first.
There was a picture of Sir Walter Strickland on one of the walls - his eyes followed you around.
There is a seasonal stream - the Gypsey Race - I was pushed off a bridge into the Gypsey Race by another of the boys - I was vey cross!
The Vicar was a Mr Lawrence.
Times were very different to to-day. At the age of six I would be expected to walk into Bridlington (accompanied) over 2 miles away.
Happy Days - a Beautiful place.
