The Evans Sisters On Moorlands Avenue

A Memory of Barton on Sea

The Evans sisters, their donkeys, and their Kindergarten School are a substantial part of my childhood memories. We lived around the corner from them, and we were sometimes boarded there when our parents needed a break, or just babysat while the parents worked. The donkeys were taken down to Barton beach in the summer to give visitors donkey rides along the beach. They had a brother Tom I seem to recollect, who travelled around the world with the Navy. We kindergarten pupils were showed all the 'Pink' bits on the world map that Tom was visiting.
