Memories of South Oxhey

Clarendon Secondary Modern

By Barbara Birch

My brother put me onto this site, what good memories all your contributors have, most of them I have, but had forgotten going on the bus to get fish and chips. we lived in Sidmouth Close , and got off the bus in Hayling road, surely the fish and chips were cold by the time we arrived home ? I have been in Australia for 42 years, and never had fish and chips that tasted so good.we walked everywhere, including Little Furze infants and Clarendon Secondary modern, I have really happy memories of school years. I seem to remember my brothers sister and I also walked RuislIp Lido, there may have been a bus involved.The golf course was at the end of our garden, we would cross it to get to the woods, and play there for hours.My group of friends loved the school band, we each had our favourite boy, mine was Ian Mckinnon who played the trumpet.i wonder what has happened in their lives, Brenda Alen, Pat Smith, Alma Quarrel and Pat Tavener, I have a photo of John Johnson, Jacqueline Steers and I posing with a model of some sort, we made it into the local paper, think it was the echo ? If anyone remembers me, would love to catch up and hear all your news. Barbara Birch.
