Lunchtime Bopping In Leeming Road.

A Memory of Borehamwood

Does anybody remember the radio shop which also sold records and record players? They used to play the modern hits over a loudspeaker in the doorway and it wasn't long before pupils from Lyndhurst school (me amongst them), used to gather at lunchtime on the pavement outside the shop to bop the hour away - much to the annoyance of Mr Fennell, the headmaster. It became quite a daily feature until eventually a TV crew turned up to film it. Finally the shop was persuaded to silence the music and Leeming Road's moment in history was over.
