Fullwell Cafe

A Memory of Barkingside

Does anyone remember the Fullwell Cafe? it was on the left hand side of Tomswood Road just past Albany's wood yard. My father Peter Full owned and ran it between 1960-1968. It was pulled down to make way for the bungalows that are still there. Those were the days!

Just as another point of interest, Kathy Kirby's Mum lived about six houses up. Now I think further on it, Peter's wife may have been Pam, not sure.

I made a reply but it vanished. I knew Peter very well, he seemed to have endless kids and made the best curries ever. Ate at his café everyday with all the Council workers and he always made sure I got a sixpence in my Christmas pudding. Everything else stays in the café.
