St. Paul's R.C. School - a Memory of Wood Green.
I remember walking along Station Road to school after getting the bus from Haringey. I can remember there was a swimming pool not far from the school where we used to go for lessons. I can also remember the Barrett Sweet factory and the smells that used to pervade the air. My mother was friendly with a lady who ran a sweet shop on Station Road near to the school and I just loved going in to visit as I was allowed to choose what I wanted. Such joy for a five or six year old. I can remember my favourite being a lollipop that looked like a mini upside down cupcake with silver paper on it and it tasted of rose hip. I also loved the honeycomb bars but alas they were dreadful for teeth!! I can still remember quite a few names of the children in my class and the head teacher at the time was Mr Lynch. Happy memories.
