School Memories - a Memory of Woking.

When I left my first school I arrived at Horsell school, a very pretty full of charecter building. I was about 6. A lot of the pupils were from my neighborhood, Hammond Road, Horsell. I remember the pretty church on the opposite side of the road on the hill, we sang in the choir there and I attended Sunday shool in the church. My headmaster was Mr Hall, a very tall man. Does anyone remember being at that school with me and often going accross the road to the field opposite to feed a lovable friendly horse? He was named Bramble, all the kids loved him, he was so popular. Sadly he tried to jump the railings around his field, it was a very sad day, I remember it well, I ran all the way home crying. There was a service in the school for him, all the children placed flowers and fruit in his field, it was quite a big story at the time.
