Holidays Around 1959? - a Memory of Lechlade on Thames.

I am sure I am right. I have the fondest memory of this place. We were sent on holiday there by the Country Holiday Fund. We were inner city kids. The place was so beautiful and every one so kind. Obviously to us this was a very rich environment and I remember the children left things for us when they went home for the summer. I got my first pair of roller skates. The nuns were very kind to us. I remember swimming in the Thames and there being a bridge. It was a world apart from our life in London. I have never forgotten it.
