St Marys C/E School - a Memory of Willesden.
I went to St Marys School and lived in Beckette Yard, Woodbine Cottage. Yes, we went to church at St Marys. At school Mr Sercombe was the head. I also played in their football team and we were the first team to ever win the league for the school. The infant school was in Pound Lane and I used to take letters for the headmaster on Fridays, to the infants. I loved it because it took me past my house and I called home for a quick drink.
