While so many changes have taken place among the school masters, for upwards of 33 years Miss Marsar has been the school mistress in the village; aided by part of the time by her mother.
At First Miss Marsar held the school where Mr C Dresser now lives, afterwards for many years in a cottage at the other end of the village, and latterly as schoolmistress in the village schools.
Miss Delagrange was the school mistress before the days of the present teacher and Mrs Hall was a teacher of still an older date.
