Where did I get this from? I haven't had it very long and already I can't remember...the joys of getting older. It tells the story of the church where I was baptised back in 1953. I'm not religeous but in those days everyone pretended, and I had to go to Sunday School and I even did a duet at the Harvest Festival when I was around 10 or 12 years old - not at the Parish Church but at Broomhill Road Methodist Church, a bit smaller and on a sidestreet n Bulwell.



As soon as I saw the booklet I had to have it. I don't really remember anything about the baptism but I must have been there as I have the certificate that says I was. I remember as a yougster that we always had 'The Hill' delivered to our house, the magazine of the Parish Church. I presume it was called the Hill because the church was on an elevated position overlooking Bulwell Market. The preface is written by Canon Sprittles, I don't remember him but I remember his name being mentioned by my mother from time to time.



The booklet of 16 pages ws produced in about 1950, two years before I was born, and was written by K. S. S. Train. Tolkien got away with three initials but Mr Train obviously didn't get his name into the psyche of the nation. Hopefully I'm doing my bit to bring his name to the people of the world. Go like a train Mr Train.
