Tracey Fuller - memories from 1976
My name is Tracey Fuller. I work at St Francis Pre-School which is in the Children's Centre. I attended Yardley in 1976/77. I learnt to swim in the freezing cold pool! I remember sitting under the willow tree eating my packed lunch in the summer. I was also part of the group of children that lived on St Egberts Estate. After a couple of serious road accidents in Kings Head Hill our parents took it upon themselves to challenge the local authority and strike from school to get the catchment changed so we could attend Chingford C of E School on Kings Road. How times have changed!! Now people resort to appeals to get into Yardley!!
