Seeing the recent discussions about Carden School reminded me that I have this press cutting in the collection I inherited from my mother. It is from one of the local papers and dated November 13th 1948. Apologies for the quality of the picture but it has been pasted into a scrapbook for over 60 years.
The cutting shows some of the the dignitaries who attended the official opening of Carden School. Seated with the children was the then Minister for Education, George Tomlinson. Also in the photograph is my grandfather, Horace Robbins who was the Deputy Chairman of the local Education Committee; Alderman Dorothy Stringer and Councillor Trevelyan Leak.
Do you remember?
It is a long time ago, but do you recognise any of the children here? Did you attend Carden School in those early days? If you can share your memories with us, please leave a comment below.
