Memories of Bishop's Cleeve
I can remember going to the Kings Head with my parents and their friends and spending time in the beer garden on the swing being given coke and crisps.
I can recall going to the Tithe Barn in 1961 where they were holding a jumble sale, and buying my mother a wind up gramophone for a shilling. There were some old 78's with it which mum kept for many years. I was 8 at the time and living in Stoke Orchard. Its wonderful looking at these old photos. Thank you.
I am positive that my cousin RJ Smith and his parents lived in the housev in the photo. If anyone else remembers them please get in touch.
We were billeted in Woodmancote, but went to a temporary school that was at a tea rooms in Bishops Cleeve. I recall many huts. There was also a funfair type of thing there but that was out of bounds. I well remember the bakery that was there, the doughnuts were to die for - huge round ones with jam and cream inside.
