Childhood Memories

Many good memories of the area apart from Collingwood School which I hated, all now departed, I wonder if anyone one here remembers them?

Collingwood School

Mr Kirby Birt was an odd character with a viscious streak. They were all scary. I think there was a Mr Maynard who wasn't too bad. I failed my 11 ...Read full memory
