Acton Park Church of England School (on left), Rhosnesni, Wrexham c1905-10 with Acton Park Lodge in the distance.


We were the fifth family to move into Borras Park as it was being built- Borras Park Road – 1959, Borras Park Road being more or less a tree lined lane at that time, no shops or schools! Rhosnesni Controlled School as it was called then, I was top scholar in the infants (still have school report), got half crown off my dad for my effort. There also used to be a triangular grass island with a tree in the centre roughly where the mini roundabout is now

I was born in the school house attached to the school in 1961 we moved in 62 because the school governess would not let my dad put an indoor toilet and bathroom in at his own expense they bathed in a tin bath
