Caught bus opposite Essex County Hospital (Lexden Road). Walked home lunch time, then bus back after lunch. It was quite a long walk home after lunch. One day my friend Roland South was run into by a cyclist at the bottom of Balkerne Hill near cattle market.

Would certainly like to have a look at school if there is another open day.
