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.

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!

My Dad

I was wondering if anyone had information around the year 1924 October? My Dad was born in Dunstable on October 7th 1924, but he and his parents and sister moved to Canada when my Dad was 3 years old. Any information/photos would be very much appreciated of that time. Thank you
