I am writing this in the hope that people may remember me. I lived in Cascade Close from the age of four and a half to 11 years. I had been fostered by a family. My best friend was Linda Liddell and she lived next to me. I unfortunately did not have a happy childhood and to escape the sadness of the home environment I was always either playing in the river roding, especially the summers splashing about or catching minnows. As children we would make a guy and stand at the railway station asking for a 'penny for the guy'. Or we would play in a place called Mazes - I think it was called that. There seemed to be a lot of empty houses around and we would enter them and look for scrumping apples was a must do thing... how those apples tasted! There was always a jumble sale on most Saturdays. I went to Princes Road School, then went to St John's later on. I was the only black child around - my name was Jean Holden. It would be nice if anyone remembered me. Also, I remember a friend called Diane and she lived in one of the prefabs.
