Mr Twist's class (standard 5) this year was part of Shevington Junior School but was moved up to the parish room in Shevington for one year.

Anne, I've uploaded a photo of our class of 1955. I remember the parish room well. We were the first class to go in there, where we had coal fires and at first had to walk to the school every dinner time to eat. Later we had facilities there.

I passed the village hall a week ago and remembered how we used to get in trouble for standing on the steps that had been donkey browned at the nearby cottages
