this brought back some memories ...... it used to be freezing cold in winter and we still had to do it. I was at All Saints from 1963 to 1967 those were the days Ha Hanll

Weren't those navy knickers terrible - but the netball was great fun - and the canteen in the background. I remember one girl eating her dinner and a light bulb fell down straight onto her plate!!
