Ron Wood's School Day Memories

Ron Wood is uniquely placed to write about the history of Brightwell School, as he has sat on both sides of the teacherís desk. In his retirement, he has written several articles for The Villager on life first as a pupil, then as a teacher. He also has vivid memories of life outside the classroom.
