Hullbridge Village History

Hullbridge Memories.

The memories of Jilly Booth

Hullbridge County Primary School.


I have great memories of Hullbridge School, having lived in the village from 1965 - 1976, I was then Jill Booty.

Mrs Chart and the swimming galas in the outdoor pool, Mrs Fairbrass poking and prodding us and even throwing chalk at me once.

I also remember our 4 day trip to Belgium, we all brought gun lighters, presents for our parents which were quickly taken of us by one of the best teachers in the school and on that trip and for the life of me I can not remember his name! He then gave them all back to us when we eventually arrived back home at Southend airport having been delayed for what seemed like hours at Ostend.

And of course Mr Hardy,
my best memory of Mr Hardy was in assembly when he would pick 'Onward Christian Soldier's we would all have to stand up and would sing at the top of our little voices, clap our hands as hard as we could, how I loved that hymn and the noise we made !
