Memories of Beckley

Happy Memory

I remember my mum and dad taking me to see Mr and Mrs Farley, they lived in a lovely house with apple trees,I also think there were chickens, because I seem to remember collecting the eggs, I especially remember their daughter Mary, she was very pretty, with freckles like myself. My dad's name was Reginald Green, he worked at Rye council along with Mr Farley.
