I'm doing some back tracking to give some context to my early life, and I'm sure I recognise this hall as where my mother taught at about this period. Her name was Constance Foreman; her subject was English and she was keen on drama. I went to the primary school which I think was on the ground floor. I'd welcome any memories.
