As Kids We Loved It

I can remember orange rolling; mum and dad used to bring us kids from Cheddington every year, can't remember how old we were... great fun as kids but could not do it now!

Whitethorn Morris Dance At The Dunstable Folk Festival

Whitethorn Morris danced here at various town centre sites and pubs along with St Albans Morris Men, Caddington Blues and Bedfordshire Lace. It was all in support of the Dunstable Folk Festival which was organised by Dunstable Town Council. A surprisingly enjoyable day was had by all!

Ashton School

I attended Aston school in church street. Mr cunningham was the headmaster. The school had a path up to it with cottages to the right.(now demolished ) Many happy years there, especially with mrs pratt. I failed my 11 plus and went to Brewers hill and now i have an honours degree in history from huddersfield university.. so much for the 11 plus.
