I Was There

A Memory of Blackboys

John your memories of Blackboys Post Office bring back cherished memories of my own. I was fortunate to have lived in Brownings Cottages opposite the PO and at the age of ten I helped ?? to remove the counters and walls one Saturday afternoon, with yourself, your father and Mr Berry, who referred to me as FOREMAN.

A memory shared by Robert Dann , on Sep 28th, 2008.

Hello Harry
Remember the pigs at Squatts Farm , helping you in the morning and going to watch you play football in the afternoon.
The Red Lion at Magham Down comes to mind. Spending hours walking behind the plough in the Park just for a ride home on the tractor at the end of the day.
