Ascot Races - a Memory of Wokingham.
One of my lasting memories is watching the cars going to Ascot for the races in the 1950's, sitting on a seat in front of the Holt School on Reading Road, taking car numbers and admiring the fashions. The cars were amazing - Rolls Royce, Bentleys etc. There were no stretch limousines in those days and it was completely safe for a child of 10 to be on a main road by themselves .How times have changed and not necessarily for the better.
