St. Margaret's School - a Memory of Yeaton Peverey.

The headmistress was utterly terrifying, I don't think she liked children very much! There were some lovely staff there, particularly Miss O'Connor (Maths) and Miss Williams (Latin and History) - she was as daft as a brush, but very kind and true. The gardener/handyman was a Mr Digweed! and the lovely Cook was Miss Evans - parents used to queue for her recipes. We were allowed to see our parents twice a term, and to go home for half-term. I can't say I was happy there, but I did appreciate my surroundings, and to this day love the outdoors, beautiful gardens and homes. A few years ago I went back to visit with my family and found the place boarded up and deserted. I am so thrilled now to see the pictures of the restored building (c/o Messrs. Strutt and Parker, Shrewsbury). I hope it has a good future.
