The Old Club House School

A Memory of Addiscombe

I was delighted to hear (and see) that I was not the only person who remembers the Club House. It would seem that one or two of us lived on the estate (I lived in Coleridge Road) and a comment regarding the primary school prompted me to remember Mr Payne who tended the boilers that were underneath the primary school and Mrs Masters the headmistress. In sorting out some old paperwork I came across a Postal Order counterfoil from the Post office by the fire station - remember the name - Bellingers. I moved away to the West Country in 1969 and as all my relatives have long since passed on I have had no reason to return to the area. But very happy times spent there.
