memories

Post by susanhennessy » Wed Aug 20, 2008 1:42 pm

I would like to congratulate you on your site, the photos of the school/church, bought some childhood memories back to me.

My father, Danny Kay, was the local policeman and we lived in the police house at the time. I am talking some 48 years ago when I was a child of 7. I can remember the local school and being in the church choir. Anzac Day also springs to mind, collecting flowers to be placed on the graves.

People in the village I can recall. Jane Elliot was a school pal. If my memory is correct her Dad was the local milk man and her gran had the village shop.

I can recall a very harsh winter when my grand parents came for christmas but had to stay longer as the village was snow bound.

Dad was promoted, and after 3/4 years we moved to Warminster. But it was happy days spent in the village.
