What was your first memorable outing without your parents ?

Festival of Britain
In 1951 came my very first big day out with the school, it was to visit the ‘Festival of Britain’ in London.
From what I can remember, there was a complete train full of schoolchildren all met up at Gillingham station, early morning, for the exciting journey to London and the exhibition. The main excitement was the fact that it was almost like being given a lesson in looking after yourself for the day and spending your own money. The exhibition itself was really a bit over my head but I remember odd things about it. However, my main memory of the day was the journey home again on the train, because I had spent what money I had left, on a bottle of Lemonade and some sweets and then spent the hours journey home, scoffing myself until I felt sick, at which point I began to wish my eyes had not been bigger than my belly!! However it was still a part of growing up and learning.

I can not remember going anywhere as I had to stay and look after my invalid father while Mother took my sister out.I think my first outing would have been a holiday camp for the weekend with the ST johns but mother went with the adults at times when Dad had died.

Apart from the school outings. I remember when I was 14 my friend and I went to Blackpool on the bus for the day. Four hours to get there. I remember I had a really sore head as when I was that age I suffered a lot of bad headaches. My friend asked on of the lady's on the bus if she had any pain killers, so looking in her bag she said no but I do have a plaster. ?? Once we got there the headache disappeared and we has a wonderful time.
