Good Memories

A Memory of Aveley

My mum and dad Pat and Brian Green lived in Aveley all there lives, Dad was born 1933 and went to Bushy Bit school and mum was born 1936 and her grandfather Jack Thornhill owned the Prince Albert pub. Once they were married they lived in Purfleet Road, which is where I still live and my sister also. But Oh how times have changed here. But I have lovely memories of Aveley and the fun fair at the 'rec and going to the stables at Park Lane, and going to the Mill Club house in Purfleet Road for evenings out with mum and dad, which is now a firemen's club. Anyway all good memories,
Alison Green
