Memories of Dorking
I remember going from St Pauls school to this pool for swimming lessons. I would also swim there in the holidays. I was afraid of the slide but would jump from the high diving board. I never did learn to dive.
I worked in the Buying sction of W. T. Henleys as a Clerk for about two years before leaving to join another cable manufactring company at Leatherhead. I remember there being a very fine staircase in the building.
My wife and I were married in this church on the 30th March 1957. I had spent most of the first twenty five years as a Sunday School member and later as a full member of the Methodist Church.
My first post as a carer on a holiday in the UK was in the house next door called Pixham Mill house. A lovely first impression coming from Australia. Exactly as I imagined a country home to be. You could see the mill house from the creek which ran down by the side of the property. Just lovely!
