A Memory of Blackwood

I remember Mr & Mrs Williams living on Marian Wen, they were our neighbours and there was a butchers shop near by. I was ten when we left moving to Canada, my maiden name was Alderman. The best memories was going to the movies in Blackwood where my mother worked as an ice-cream lady. I will be returing for a visit soon and hope to revisit some of my childhood memories. My mother recently passed away and she always wanted to return home, so I will be bringing some of her ashes back as she wanted.

Hi Trudy, you were one of my dear childhood friends. Have never forgotten you . You were Maureen Alderman. Do you remember me ?
