Memories of Luton
I started work at Vauxhalls in August 1956. I was an office boy in "P" block for 13 months before going on to do a 5 year apprenticeship. There were 250 draughtsmen, about 50 engineers and me and 1 other office boy had 3 bosses. Bill Cox, John Soddy and Vic Cherry...they ran my ar$e ragged for 13 months, but on reflection they were great times...
My name is David Garner and I was born in 1942 and lived in Faringdon Road, My Great Uncle was Charles Jeyes a building contractor and was also a Past Chairman and President of Luton Town Football Club I went to school at Leagrave Junior School and eventually to The Technical school on Park Square
A Lutonian from birth, attended St Matthews Primary School and then Hitchin Road Sec Modern. A favourite past time of mine was dancing. I attended the Barratt School of Dancing in Gordon Street under the tutorship of Mr Gaddesdon. Old Time dancing, Scottish dancing and the Friday night dancing to the pop music (...Read full memory)
Moved to Luton in 1935 where my parents bought a newsagents and tobacconists in Bishopscote Road in Limbury. Can still remember the war sirens going and watching people hurrying to the Air raid shelters in Blundell Road recreation ground. .Have pleasant memories of attending Denbigh Rd school and then Luton Modern school...later to become the Grammar school in1944. Happy child hood days. !
