Wonderful times spent in Brackenwood (Rolly polly) Park Iremember the Beautiful Building in the picture. We lived on the estate,so mum would have to go there occassionaly and would take me as I was only a little tot then. The whole place was kept tidy from the entrance at the bottom of brackenwood road to top putting green. I used to be in the Cubs attached to the the 8th Air scouts whoes original rooms where the buildings behind the Golf club and old toilet block (near to Mount road) In the winter it was the best place for sledging, and all round the year courting your girlfriends. So lucky to had my childhood on the Brackenwood. Lovely houses,gardens,play areas,Storeton woods as well. I live in NZ now but remember it all like it was yesterday.
