Dancing Round The Maypole

A Memory of Burgh Heath

I can remember dancing round the maypole by the conker trees just down from the pond on May 1st with the Burgh Heath Methodist School, Head teacher Miss Mary Fletcher - and buying sherbert in the little shop nearby which was weighed out on an old set of scales - sherbert and humbugs kept in little glass jars on the shelf - can't remeber the name of the lady that owned the shop but knew her daughter Mrs  Freida  Day - anyone else remember any of this or what this lady's name was?  Also remember hearing stories of the horse and cart that went down the well in the pond - wonder whether that was true -Miss Marshall who lived by the pond (school secretary) told us this story - gosh so many memories flooding back :)
