  • How amazing to come across this website. My family lived on the Great North Road, near the railway station, in the late 50s, early 60s. My sisters and I attended Countess Anne Primary School. Mrs Phelps was my class teacher so it’s wonderful to see her again in the ‘School Leavers 1952’ photo.

  • I remember Valerie Baker and Daved Baker was in my class.

    My Family moved to Hatfield in 1948 when I was around 6 years old. We first moved to the Caravan site in front of Hawker Sidney’s Aircraft Office. It was not long after the  war and things were very hard. Sadly I don’t have any pictures and I am hope to find some here.
