True Native Of Gerrard's Cross - a Memory of Gerrards Cross.
I was born in Gerrard's Cross in 1943, lived there until 1960, and went to the Primary School opposite the common. Many of the kids stayed there for lunch - I didn't, but when I got back I was allowed to eat the left-over custard! There was a beautiful lime tree at the edge of the playground. The school has now been replaced by another building, I don't know what it is - flats? - but according to Google Street View a small tree still stands where the lime tree used to be and I like to imagine it's an offshoot of the original. Did anyone else go to the C of E primary school, as I think it was called?
