I was at Thundersley Primary School from about 1962 to 1967 when we moved to Leigh. I had lived on the caravan park in 6th Avenue and was in the infants when the first fire occurred. Our teacher took home all our PE bags which had been covered in soot from the fire and washed each and every one – think that might have been Mrs Ball.
After that we had Mrs Cartwright who occasionally brought her young son into school and is pictured in one of our school photos. Moving into the junior school I remember having Miss Watson as she also taught my Dad – not sure if she was our class teacher, but she certainly taught me how to knit.
I did seem to get involved in some mishaps while living in Thundersley, so in some respects I was quite pleased to move even though I missed my friends and regret losing touch with them.
