World Book Day 7 March 2019 - I have to confess to not being a book-lover (for me a good read is the Argos Catalogue - Mrs P.M. on the other hand can dispatch War and Peace in a weekend and still have time for a bag of jelly babies) so World Book Day pretty much passed me by. So, did HLS library carry a copy of Alice in Wonderland? I doubt it, catering for 11-16 year olds there was little space for anything other than reference books in the tiny library.

P.S. Actually, the Cross Keys (20 mins walk from my folk's Lyndhurst Estate flat) was not one of my watering holes but it was my dad's, god rest his soul, it was his second home.

Christmas 1964 - my last Christmas at HLS. The Class Christmas Party was a bit on the sombre side. The girls of the form did a great catering job, the celebration was held in the library (our home classroom) and our teacher Mr Thomas try to lighten the mood with the odd party game, once the new year was out the way it would be down to serious revision for the forthcoming May 1965 CSE Exams.
