1943 ~ The Managers' Minute Books
Winnington-Ingram CE Primary School
- 1943 -
The last record of a Managers’ meeting had been
in 1940, none being extant for in either 1941 or 1942.
Below we present the record of a single
meeting of Managers held at the start of 1943. The sole item
on the agenda, the perennial one of limited accommodation, concerned the
establishment of a boundary to define children who had the right of
admission to the school, and those whose entry was not guaranteed.
Later in the year there was a change of incumbent at St Martin’s, Ruislip, with Rev. Ernest Mortimer taking the place of Rev. Barnsley. It would appear the next meeting of Managers was held on March 7th 1946, after the end of the war, when Ernest Mortimer signed the minute book. However, no minutes of that meeting nor any other until November 13th 1947 were entered. When Mr Dixon‑Smith took over as Correspondent/Secretary to the Managers at the end of 1948, he fixed a note to p.174 to explain the lacuna.
