Thirty Years Since I Left

Went to the Avenue School summer fete today.

Oh, how things have changed. The huge field on which I played hundreds of hours of football is drastically smaller. Buildings occupy more than half of it and the long building which used to house the lunch rooms/classrooms has gone completely.

Kind of sad, looking at what wasn’t there.
Avenue Primary School, Warminster

But also a lesson: things change.
I dare say that, if the Avenue Primary school could talk, it would say I had changed, too.
Maybe both of us for the better?
