Bell ringers on Pauline Jones and Keith Furness' wedding day 12 July 1958 .
Mr George Markwell’s Memories
Lessons in good behaviour & good manners were taught & put into practise. Since there had been a Lord & Lady of the manor in the village everyone was expected to respect them. The men & boys would have to doff there caps & the women & girls would have to curtsy in there presence. So whenever Lady Pell visited the school, something she did regularly up to her death in 1886, the girls would curtsy.
The same continued with the next Mrs Pell & her family. Mrs O.C Pell came regularly to take lower standards for reading. She did this up to her death in 1917. I did learn that several parents forbade there children to curtsy when Mrs Pell came into school.
The following verse was used for as practise for good hand writing:
Lost somewhere between sunrise and sunset ,
Two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes.
No reward offered, they are lost and gone forever.
