Seasonal Memory

Recommended Posts

Anybody remember visiting Santa Claus at Oxleys in the 1950s. Helena House also had its own version with a train carriage and moving scenery.

Who remembers taking stuff to school for their classroom party in the same era? Every child's parents sent their kid to school with some or other edible contribution, usually jelly and custard or jam tarts etc

Also remember having to take in your own plate, glass dessert dish and a spoon - labelled with your name - at least we did at Rivvy Road biggrin.png.

 

Of course, we all wanted to take in items out of the 'sunday best stuff' and NOT the tatty 'odd bits' that we used every day of the week rolleyes.gif.

Yes, we took in labelled plates etc at Knowsley Road School too. Potted meat paste butties and jellies in paper cups are my memory. A bit like the Walking Day food at Parish Church field off Rainford Road

Singing "Away in a manger" and not really knowing what a "manger" or "no crib for a bed" really meant :-)
