From Doris Mary Bainbridge

My father (Cyril Bainbridge) was Police Constable at Moreton in 1960 (approx.) but also covered Gnosall. In 1965 they,that is dad,Cyril,mum,Philip and myself moved to Gnosall Police House,at Bank Top. In those days Police Officers moved around a lot. My brother Philip,attended Gnosall Secondary School,while I attended the Infant school going onto the Middle and then the Secondary Schools.

While my father continued to serve in the police (until 1976),and he was well known in the village. My mother became a School Crossing Warden (lollipop lady) on the High Street and was well loved,being on duty during all sorts of weather for a number of years.

After my father retired in 1976 after 25 years service,approximately 20 of which were spent around Gnosall,we (myself,and my parents) moved to Stafford. I returned to Gnosall a couple of evenings a week to help out at Youth Club. After a few years I bought myself a house and thus left home. Sometime later my parents moved to Masons Lawn,Gnosall. My father became seriously ill and during his final years my mother dedicated her life to care for him. When he died in October 1992 she wrote on a calendar ‘my life is over’,but she persevered and returned to Stafford to be closer to me. Eight years ago she became blind and developed dementia which led to her death. Her funeral took place at Stafford Crematorium on 27th December 2017 with a collection of behalf Dementia UK and the Shire Horse Society.

My parents were well known in the village for a time and they,like me,had a love of Gnosall and it villagers.
