Growing up in and around Dorchester
By David J Forrester
David Forrester’s mother ran Forrester’s Stores, which welcomed customers in Fordington High Street for 35 years after the Second World War. He recalls the life and times of the people going about their daily lives, through stories of growing up in the area. His reminiscences are a record of what it was like living in post-war Fordington, including school life at St George’s Infant School, Colliton Street School for Boys, and Dorchester Secondary Modern, the hey-day of Lott and Walne, market days and the old shops in Dorchester, singing in the choir, and school-boy pranks. The book is part memoir, part recollections of what life was like in an area of Dorchester known then as the ‘wrong end of town’.
