Letter: I Was At Westborough School – During The War

Sitting next to teacher at Westborough School.

From Anne French (née Dennett)

I was born in 1939 and started at Westborough School aged just two.

I have memories that are rekindled by the photos I have of that time. For instance: sitting in a playroom with the teacher and friends, doll washing, hand washing and eating dough. Great pictures of a moment in time.

Doll washing.

The photos were taken 1941/2ish. I have fond memories of this time and during the war years I spent living over a sweet shop in North Street.

Eating dough.

My grandparents had the Seven Stars pub, then a brewery house in Drummond Road.

I just love Guildford. My family name is Dennett. Uncle W.D. Dennett was a photographer for the Surrey Advertiser.

Ready for something messy.
