I went to the Methodist School just before the Second World War, the school closed because we had no shelters, and we were transferred to three classrooms at Picquets Way.
I remember Miss Parrott as headmistress and a Mrs Godfrey.
We still used the Galleon for swimming lessons, usually in the morning before the pool opened to the public. Yes, it was sometimes very cold!
We fished for newts and tadpoles in the pond. As there were no sweets generally available to us we bought Bonio dog biscuits at Privetts store to eat, they were very tasty!
