Some Winter reading - The Bourne from 1952

John Hanson has sent in some wonderful archives from his days at PGS - here is the Bourne in it's entirety. Due to technical "challenges" the pages are not in the correct order.

Geoffrey Todd comments "Thanks for the recent posting of The Bourne from 1952.
It certainly brought back some memories and includes mention on page 10 of the Railway Club visit to RHDLR that year and links neatly with the photo I sent to you in December 2017.   Michael Haylock was one of the pupils attending.  He's in the back row 3rd from left - cap askew as ever next to Mr. Carey.
Another memory stirred was queuing for rock cakes at milk break.   The funds the cakes raised was put towards the War Memorial pavilion which Dr. Birchall is reported opening on page 2.   Believe the dinner ladies cooked the cakes daily in the school kitchen.
