A Memory of Burnt Oak

I went to Woodcroft Primary School in 1966. I was born in Borehamwood, moved to Burnt Oak in 1962. It was a great place to live. Watling park, Blundell park, great times xx. I remember Debbie Davies, Lizzie True, Cheryl Hiller, Jenny Cole, she was my next door neighbour. Michelle West lived in Oldberry Road. I loved the Saturday market, and the library on Saturday. I was there yesterday, 11 Jan 2011, it has changed so much. The old Woolworths, John Fords, my sister Deb worked in there on a Saturday. Worked in Tescos, the big old Co-op. Loved jingled on a Friday night with Karen McClean, she still lives in Oldberry Road/worked in Dixons office block. My brother is John Shipman, sisters Deb, Julie and Nancy. Loved reading the memories xxxx.
