- Start of Christmas
Peter Packwood's memory from 16 December 2014
Coming out of the Christingle Service at St Mark’s Church on Christmas Eve into a dark, cold December evening feels like the real start of Christmas to me. Having sung carols and watched the children receive their orange with a lit candle we go home to a warm fire and nibble on ‘Nigella’ cooked ham straight from the oven. Ah!
- Lunch and Football
Eric Baddeley's memory from 31 December 1969
It’s the late sixties. My memory as a student at St. Mark’s Primary is of playing football on the hard surface of the carpark. No synthetic ball mind, but a real, leather ‘case ball’ with stitching. Every day, just as the game got to the “next goal wins stage” all the boys would have to race inside to put the tables out for lunch.
