    From the southwest of France I send best wishes for a very successful set of jubilee
    celebrations. The return to the 1950’s will no doubt bring back memories for some, and provide surprises for others.
    Certainly I remember the school well, with father the headmaster. You’re right it was chalk and blackboards, information came from text books and the teacher, computers were unknown. BBC schools’ radio programmes brought the outside world to the classroom. Pens and ink in inkwells the writing materials. The school functioned on father as headmaster and three staff members, with peripetetic specialists calling weekly.
    The school also served as a branch of the county library service, offering village
    readers a choice of books that changed every 3/4 months.
    A summer coach trip to London or other interesting places was in those times
    a high spot on the calendar.
    No doubt the presentations will do the memories justice.
    Memories too can be revived through seeing the silver jubilee dvd, which I hope
    wasn’t considered too unsophistcated for today’s demanding viewers.
    Enjoy the day, I shall raise a glass of our wine to the village.
    Neville James Cole.
