Hi Linda, welcome to the forum. Wave You don't need to set this as chat, since it's on topic. We do sometimes stray heavily from the subject Lol

Hi. I attended Foxford from 1935 till 1939ish, you just turned up or not for the next two years, depending on a number of things - if you were alive, if your parents needed you and scores of other problems. In ‘35 the old ruined Fox pub still stood on the corner opposite to the park and football field. From that corner to Jackers Road were allotments, standing in the corner of the allotments opposite the pub was a wooden sweet shop. From the sweet shop ran a small pathway through the allotments and May Mitten’s field, across to AG Rd, through more allotments that fronted AG Rd, two doors from the Bird in Hand pub. We didn't have a science class, but had a Bunsen burner that no one knew how to work - didn't have anywhere to eat sandwiches except in the small cloakroom, sat on the five inch hot water pipes. No houses between the school and Jackers Rd on either side. Geography got good, we learnt where France and Germany were, then Egypt - no family or teacher had ever been until ‘39 that I knew, no one had a clue where Australia lay, just somewhere you had to get a boat to, but someone had just flown to, so it couldn't be far. And none of the boys tackled Hazel or you asked for a black-eye, even I and Les Allen avoided her. Yeh, I remember it well.
