"Do you recognise this totem pole?It was only a part of my childhood because I knew other kids went there. After a quick glance around online, I think I may have found an eyewitness account of the making of the totem pole at this old BBC page. Over to Bob T:
It was made by teacher Ken James and pupils from Sefton Park Secondary School in the 1960s and soon became a well-known feature of Colomendy Centre for Outdoor Education, in North Wales.
For generations of Liverpool children, Colomendy has been an essential part of their childhoods."
"I remember doing lots of projects for the place making bird boxes, we even made a totem pole at school out of a telegraph pole and placing it at the entrance to Colomendy. We made the flag pole in a workshop there and I made the button on the top the first time I'd ever used a spoke shave. We even re-fenced the weather station. No wonder the then boss Mr Farquerson, like us being there!"
