Wade Deacon Grammar School Widnes Another Memory - a Memory of Widnes.

Practising for the Town Sports on the front lawn of school, I was 'doing javelin' My class-mate Ardrie Van der Wall (Dutch) was 'doing discus'
I threw my javelin, and went to retrieve it, whilst Ardrie prepared to throw her discus.

I tood up straight to pull my javelin out of the turf, as Ardrie let her discus fly....straight and true into the back of my head!

The next I knew, I was waking up in the arms of the delectable Mr Charlsworth, the boys gym teacher ( it was almost worth taking the hit!).

Other girls returning from a cross country run, had seen me on the grass with my javelin sticking up and thought I had been speared!!!!

I had three stitches in my head and was excused wearing my school beret for six weeks until I was 'healed'
I didn't get on to the team!
