School - a Memory of Crawley Down.

I was at the village school from June '54 when we moved to a new house in Grange Road, until '59 when I and 3 others went to the Grammar school in EG.  I remember Mrs Fry the school cook, (mentioned in another memory) from when I was a dinner monitor.  There were only 4 classrooms.  Miss Drew was the head and the next class was Mr Mills.  It was a friendly school and we had some church services - it was a C of E school - and I remember reading one of the lessons in church  I continued living in the village (Sandy Lane from '61) until 1968 when I was married and moved to Bristol.
