What was your first memorable outing without your parents ?
Closed

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.

Well I have recalled one memory today so I do not think I wish to recall anymore for now. Sorry I am no use here for you.

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.

I can't really remember - I know we went to Yarmouth as I have the photos but actually remembering it is different! I tended to go out with my Dad more to give Mum time on her own to relax in / do the Sunday Roast and so on! Going out as a family I remember going to a funfair in Southend with the whole family, aunties, uncles, cousins and dog!
