44. Colin Harrison recalls Boundstone School early days
. I spent my childhood in the lovely village of lancing, and have so many good memories, Dad worked in the railway works after his discharge from the Army, right up to it's closure, Mum worked part time in Fircroft house. I attended North Lancing county primary school , then one year at Irene avenue secondary and was one of the first year at Boundstone, the previous year we boys had been up there on 'day release' so to speak, to do woodwork and metal work, as those classrooms were the first to be built and finished. I remember all of the school being told we all had to pay a pound towards the construction of the school swimming pool, situated in the open behind the police houses, a right cheek as I left before its opening, so never ' splashed in anger. I spent the 1960's working around Sussex, then wondered off to see the world, returning to live now in Eastbourne in my old age. Thank you again for the info and some of those wonderful old photos of the Lancing I loved.
Yours Colin Harrison, late of Fircroft Avenue.
