Schooldays - a Memory of Auldgirth.

I was born in Hayfield Cottages, Auldgirth in April 1931. My first year at school
Mrs Garthwaite was my teacher. She lived in the house just north of the school.
In the mid 30s my brother Bob and I saw an airship fly over Barbra Mill. Can
anyone else remember that? Aulgirth sports were held in the field across from
the inn. We gathered the empty bottles and took them to Mrs Telford the landlady.

Although I left Auldgirth when I was six I have so many pleasant memories of
the place, like catching and eating my first burn trout, going to school parties at Kennedys home at Blackwood. Jock Richardson & Jock Robson (farmers) I remember.
