When I was 10 years old, I remember Elder Johnson and his companion Elder Sterling visiting my mother when we lived at 9 Horner Road. Elder Johnson was tall, probably over 6’ 6”.
My mother Patricia received the discussions and was baptised in Poole chapel.
I remember the journey to Pool on a rented coach. The missionaries later played catch with me....I was the ball. It was great fun.
We met for church at the Odd Fellows Hall in Winchester Street. Dad did not allow my sister nor me to be baptised .
I can remember though that my dad drove me to Weston S Mare chapel for a primary activity.
I remember the chapel was a large house on the same site as the chapel now stands.
