My dad’s job meant that he stored some strange things in our house and shed. All the houses on our street had a brick shed and separate brick coalhouse. Me and Les had a kind of Enid Blyton Famous Five set-up in his Dad’s shed – it was our den headquarters and empty except for a solitary sweeping brush we used to keep it clean – whereas our shed was in constant use.

He went to Eastmount School on Longhill Estate and I went to Estcourt High School for Girls. Like everyone of our age, we had a fear of the unknown and of being separated from friends. I was lucky that my closest two girl friends came with me. I’d passed the mandatory eleven-plus exam and scored high enough marks to be given my first choice of school. I had no idea what I wanted to do after high school but I never saw myself as following the usual pattern for women upon leaving school: working, getting engaged then married and having children.
I put on my old pre-teen clothes and took off on my bike, roaming the estates and countryside. I spent more time with Les. We’d both been introduced to chemistry at high school and decided to perform our own experiments, gradually acquiring an astonishing array of equipment, from Bunsen burners, test tubes and evaporating dishes to all the necessary apparatus to form a condenser (as used for distilling). Like most schools back then, Estcourt High School channelled girls’ education to suit various careers.
