We moved away from London before I reached the grand age of two and I spent the next ten years growing up in Luton.  My sister Pamela and I went to Denbigh Primary School.

I well remember Mr Lyons and his "smacky bottom club" (not politically correct these days, but what is?), and the book that he read out to us. I think it was called The Magic Door, but I have never been able to track it down since.
