London Road Primary School - a Memory of Burgess Hill.
I too remember Mrs Duckworth though she was not my teacher, my first teacher was Miss Richardson and also there was a Mrs Parrott. I then went to a class run by Mrs Donnovan, Mr Baird was head master and Ms Brown was the scary teacher, also I was in Mr Eliot's and Mr Smith's class.
Of course all gone now and a housing estate
I also lived on Chanctonbury Road (31) with sister Sue who also attended in Mrs Cardigan's class. I now live in Norfolk but occasionally visit Burgess Hill and also pass by Keymer Parade where my parents started a baby shop which later became a restuarant (The Jack & Jill), now an Indian restaurant. Brown's stationers and The Sunshine Cafe (4 Black Jacks a 1d and he'd still sell you one for a farthing). The Goose Fayre, firstly on Folders Lane and then to where was it - Brown's Lane?
The Orion Cinema and Swaysland the Barbers, happy days.
