Many Memories

A Memory of Standon.

I went to the school here. Mrs Foster was my Teacher and Mr Pritchard was the Head Master.
We would cross the road to the village hall for Dinner. I vaguely remember having music lessons in the hall too (We all had recorder lessons).

We were lucky enough to have a swimming pool, which was probably, almost unheard of in the 1970’s. We had pale blue and pale pink rubber rings, I think they were real rubber too. And I remember how cold the changing rooms were.

We had a tuck shop, and for some reason I remember Bovil Crisps were 3 1/2p.

We would walk through the church yard to enter the school via the left hand side of the building. There was a court yard with black, cobble type tiles on the ground.

There was a school photo taken in 1974. It was taken in the road outside of the school. I was one of the last pupils to go here, and I am in said photo.

With thanks to Fiona Douthwaite for this memory of Standon
