Poyners Nursery East Hill Ashford Kent

A Memory of Ashford

When this building was sold and demolished by Ashford School, the site was turned into a Tennis court with a igh steel net fence placed along East Hill to prevent balls landing in the road or hitting pedestrians. It was only when this was not found to be effective ( could it be the girls tried on purpose to hit their balls over the the higher net ?) was it then turned into a car park.

This was mummery nursery... My grandfather and his sister ran it for many years till granddad retired and pointers took over. Many. Members of the mummery family were born at that cottage. I remember it well.
