Without their help, none of this would have been possible.

Thanks also to Eve Defty and Margaret Gosling at Wendover Junior School who allowed us to browse through the old school records and archives, in particular their wonderful collection of photographs. All of which was greatly appreciated.

To all of the teachers and to the caretaker at the John Hampden School – thank you for your hospitality, your patience and your suggestions. Special thanks to the Headteacher, Lesley Alexander, and to Belinda Horn who as mentors to the group gave encouragement when the going got tough.

Thanks also to John Alexander who has provided voice-overs on the pages, so that even the youngest children can hear the words on the page even if they can’t yet read them.
