I can remember watching childrens film foundation films at the highfields library in the 1970s. I think these films were shown about once a month and were a rare (free) treat in those days. Also im sure many people will remember the ABC minors, great days.

I made regular trips to the ABC minors on a Saturday morning. I think we were sent to give our parents a bit of peace! we had our own song and if it was your birthday you took your cards and went up on stage so everyone could sing happy birthday. I remember you got a small bag of jelly tots- I never had so many birthdays in one year!!!!! Can't believe they knocked it down.
