1945 1962

A Memory of Blakeney

My memory goes back to 1945, my surname was Virgo and I lived in Cluster Cottage next to the brook. I remember standing by the brook with my cat in my arms; I must have been about 4 years old. A man took a photo of the brook with me on it, it was on a post card. I went to High Street church, was in the choir there and went to the school there. I left Blakeney when I married in 1962. I have been back a few times but have a lot of memories of Blakeney.
