A Memory of Alverstoke

I used to come to Alverstoke with my mother, father and sister to visit my great aunt May Mackie from 1953-1970's. I used to love playing mini golf here with my family. I lived in Alverstoke for a year when we first arrived back from Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in !953 and lived with my Grandmother Mrs Violet Isabel Black. My relatives Mackies and Blacks lived in this area for quite a while and one relative Sir Frederick Field was Vice Admiral of HMS Hood in 1924. These wonderful pictures of Alversoke brought lots of memories back for me
