  1. Risk assessment, Health and Safety etc, I really wonder how we managed to survive going to primary school in 1947 surrounded by bombed out buildings which became our playground, much, I must admit to the consternation of our teachers. But apart from a few cuts and bruises the worst that ever happened was getting absolutely filthy which was quickly and easily fixed with a drop of soap and water.

    FGS let our kids grow-up learning for themselves (the best lesson) the dangers of simply LIVING in this dangerous world. You can’t wrap them in cotton wool and keep in a sterile environment forever.
