Tring Memories

A Memory of Tring

The fondest memories I have was the time I lived in Tring. Born at number 36 Woodland Close and I lived in Tring until I was 21 years old. I remember Tring school and many of the teachers, Mr Thomas the Head Master, Mrs Thomas, Miss Speed, Mr Edney, Mr Hart, Mr Powell, Mr Green, Mr Jennings and Mr Edwards the sports master that helped me so much with my football career. I had a paper round with Mr Walton in Western Road and a Saturday job with Mr Bob Hedges and Mervyn in Miswell Lane. Of all the places I have lived none compare with the happy years spent in Tring. I have visited the town and not a great deal has changed, someone once said to me, stand at the bottom of the High Street and look upwards at the roof line of the buildings to which I did and found what fantastic buildings there are and complete with so much history.
A word of advice to all that live in Tring, appreciate what a wonderful Town you live in. Chris Wren.
