SUNDAY SCHOOL TRIP 1486
The Sunday School Trip, boy does that bring back memories, saving all year
to go and it then cost 2/6p. That was for the train to Portrush and then
at lunch time you got a bag with sandwiches and a bun in it at the church
hall. The boys would see who could keep their head out the train window
the longest before a bit of soot got in your eye. Anyway that's what these
two youngsters were on back in 1948 with their buckets and spades.
They are Anne Knox and her brother Jim Knox and they brought along their
Aunt Muriel White nee Rae to play with and hopefully take them into Barry's!

many years ago. A practice carried out in my day although I made sure they
were well spaced out if you get what I mean!
