A Childhood Memory In The 1950s - a Memory of Wickham.
I can remember this tennis court very well during 1953-4. I had to walk around it until I was told to stop as a punishment for break a school rule - probably for talking after 'lights out'. The Headmistress at the time would watch us out of her study window and if we weren't walking fast enough she would shout at us. We were told that ten times round was a mile and I seemed to walk for miles. I was only 8 years old at the time. My name then was Wendy Oxley.
