Obviously, Sundays were very different back then – the shops weren’t open, for a start! It’s almost impossible to imagine that now, isn’t it? Weird.
But it was kind of nice – Sunday really was far more of a ‘day of rest’ than it seems to be these days.
I don’t really remember specifically what we did on Sundays when I was young, although I did go to Sunday school for a while at Pinehurst Road Chapel, which is still there today. I’m not quite sure what brand of Church it was, but from memory it was a bit ‘happy clappy’ – I remember learning a hymn to the tune of the Match of the Day theme tune! I can even remember the words – amazing what the brain retains, isn’t it?
I also remember a period when we used to go for walks along the Dorset coast on a Sunday, and take a picnic lunch, which was fun.
And look at the photos – when I was a child, the weather really was always warm and sunny!
