Memories Of St. Michaels Church

My daughter Jackie Fuller married in this church in 1972 and my daughter Trina was christened there. We lived in Manning Street and I was married to Ted Fuller who still lives in Aveley. Trina was christened there in 1968 and I still remember the Vicar who did the service for both of them but cannot remember his name..

I used to love that slide when I was little. I grew up in Aveley, my parents moved from London in 1966 when I was 2 months old, we used to live in Mill Road (my parent still do). The biggest thing at the Rec was the yearly Fair. Great memories.
