cold ashby school
Am I right in thinking that our family friend, Dorothy Richardson, was head of the primary school in Cold Ashby in the 1940'S? Does anyone remember?
Posted by stan bailey on 07 September 2013
I attended Cold Ashby School at the age of 5 in 1946, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of the Head Teacher at that time, but Dorothy Richardson's name rings a bell for some reason. I left after a year and went to Thornby School, walking each day there and back from Cold Ashby.

Yes, Miss Richardson was Teacher at Cold Ashby in the 40's We have a photo of her with her class at the school.

Queens Coronation 1953
What celebrations took place in the village to commemorate the Coronation. I recall a damp day, with a Fancy Dress Competition in which I took part and came 3rd as Lester Piggott. The winner was a girl who sewed sweets all over her dress!! In the evening (best part of the day) a lot of us kids went up to Winnick Warren for a frolic or two. Philip Bott and Roger Miller were my pals.
