went to Sunday school and GLB there in the .40s 50s .Gladys May Aylward (Inn of the Sixth Happiness ) came to visit us from China .remember that amazing woman ( played by Ingrid Bergman )was born in Edmonton in 1902.

Willoughby Road Methodist Church in my day too. I was Christened here, went to Sunday School and GLB, which changed its name to GB while I attended. 
I remember the fact Gladys Aylward visited but not the occasion. It was a beautiful building with a large hall, break out rooms and a huge worship area. Being Methodist, when we started taking Communion, it was blessed Ribena!! 
Happy memories, happy days.

For a split second I thought Lydia and I might have been contemporaries at Willoughby but the GLB became the GB in '65 and by then I was long gone.

Couldn’t remember the year GLB changed to GB Richard, thanks for pinpointing ‘65: I was 10 that year.

Only briefly Irene; I switched to cubs/scouts up the road at St Paul's in about 1949/50; aged about 7-8. I was tone deaf and then got chucked out in about 54/5 for smoking under the stage! My brother was in BB for many years in the later 50s but down at Green Lanes Methodist.
