Comments about this page

My name was Ruby Young, born in Brighton in 1923 and I lived at No. 15 Eastern Road. I went to St Mary's School from approx. 1930/35. The Headmistress was Miss Apthorpe and the deputy was Mr Cooper. My teacher was Miss Mullins. Two other teachers that I remember we're Miss Dawson and Miss Smithers.

i was friendly with boy named Donald Fadden, and a girl called Iris Kennet. We went swimming once a week to St Luke's School or to the North Road Baths. We went to Church once a week as it was a Church  school. I don't remember anyone getting the strap, but a few fingers were rapped with the cane.

It was a long long time ago, but I have some good memories of those days.

Hi Ruby, just seen your comment on my page about my mother Florence Groves who lived in Riflebutt Road. I would love to get in touch if possible. Best wishes, Barbara Parsons.

I have just read your thread. Iris kennet was my grandmother and she was born in Hove. I'm wondering if it's the same person that you talk of.
