School Memory

Both my Grandparents taught at the school. Arthur Charles Potter was our maternal Grandfather and Ralph Harding my paternal Grandfather. I also knew Miss Phillips who married my Grandfather Ralph in the late 50s.


Mr Arthur Potter is sitting in the front row next to Mr Jim Walford and Mr Ralph Harding is in the back row, 3rd from right. Miss Phillips is standing on far left.


My father, John Harding, attended the school in the late 1920s/early 30s. My parents first met on a Churchfield‘s school trip to the seaside in the 1930s, (when they were in their mid teens), as a result of their fathers working together and then they married in 1946.
