I lived in School St off Greenough St with my mother, (Helen Stephens), 5 brothers and 2 sisters! Mrs Cunliffe made all of our walking day dresses along with baby brother, Peter. She also made my confirmation dress. We alweays walked with St Georges, it was one of the occasions when we had a new dress! I remember Mr Spencer with great fondness he was my inspiration to go on and do an English degree. I was in the same class as his son Geoffrey and also George Giles. Loved every minute of my schooling at St
