I remember being absolutely terrified of starting at Mayfield School. Although some of the teachers were quite frightening, I look back at my time at the school with very fond memories of the friends I had there. I’ll never forget Mrs. Mendham. She told us, when we were playing her up in class one day, that she could see us all in her glasses and what we were up to whilst she wrote on the blackboard. That’s multi-tasking for you. Mrs. Taylor stands out as one of my favourite teachers. She gave me one of those green triangular chocolates you find in quality street. I’ve been hooked ever since.
