4 photographs of Malcolm Titcombe as a young boy. Malcolm grew up in Lydiard Tregoze and was very much part of the village community. Following his father's footsteps, he attended the school at Hook.

As a small child, he along with his peers, attended the Methodist Hall in Hook as St. Mary's Lydiard Tregoze was a long way to walk across the fields, especially in winter. As the children got older and acquired bicycles, some gravitated to the church in the park.

Following the retirement of Gertrude Gough in 1980, Malcom became organist at St. Marys Church until 1999. He still plays for occasional services.
