I too went to St. Johns School when Miss Boosey was the Headmistress she also took us on a Wednesday after school to "Kings Messengers" and to St Johns Church on a Sunday Morning.  
I can remember the Rocking Horse and having my first coloured pencil (blue or red) to write with in the bottom class.
Kate: Hello Betty.  I wonder where that rockinghorse ended up?  I expect it was well worn out by the time the school closed.
What was "Kings Messengers"?

Kings Messengers was a religious group where we went to a small house at the back of Bath Row after school and I think we did knitting and sewing.  We also had a gold metal badge with a cross on it.  I can remember Davinia Green and possible Pat Hayes going with me.  If they read this they might remember a bit more  Betty
Kate:  Thanks Betty.  Perhaps they will read this and add a bit more.

I was also a King's Messenger and remember well the house in Bath Row Alan and myself we were the packers. I don't know how because we were only small. I still have my badge and it looks as good as new.Gold with a cross on it  something I have always treasured.
Kate:  Thanks Richard.  Does anyone else remember being in
"King's Messengers"?
