Stanhope Primary School

I have really good memories of going to Stanhope Primary School along Kingsnorth Road, Ashford. Are there any old photos of the school? I know it has been pulled down.. such a beautiful old building.

Toffee Apple Man

Does anyone remember the toffee apple man? He used to push a bike around with a tray on the front, crammed with toffee apples, always rang a hand bell so you knew he was on his way.

Christmas Eve

I can remember being taken to Ashford on Christmas Eve and visiting Rabsons toy shop in Middle Row It was a magical place for a small child and I gazed at all the toys in wonder. I can remember anxiously asking my mother whether we would be home in Pluckley before Father Christmas came!

History

Where now heavy traffic pours both ways along this road, children played in the street early this century. The only vehicles in evidence are a cart pushed by two boys, and in the distance a bicycle being ridden.
