My name was Mandy Donaldson and I'm the daughter of Joan Ellis. My grandparents names were Kath and Ernest Ellis. Aunts and Uncles were/are John and Joyce Ellis (they ran the local taxi), Roger Ellis, Bob and Wendy Ellis and Jennifer Carlyon. Anyone remember them? I have fond memories of Binbrook. I remember Oscar Cook's shop, also Heap's, Spar and the butchers that was situated right on the square. In the school holidays when we were visiting, I remember getting up early and going to work with my gran at the RAF camp - she was the head cleaner and the Blue Lion Club, the ballroom floor shone like a mirror. I also remember the chip shop - Friday night was chippy night, swallowed down with a bottle of pepsi cola or vimto- what a feast! Oh yes, and does anyone remember the cafe half way between the village and camp? Bottles of pepsie and dancing to the 60's music on the juke box..................happy days. Mandy Brew Birmingham
