Memories of Cheshunt

My First Try At Stand Up Comedy In Cheshunt :

When I attended a weekend course called "The Entertainers" at the old Theobalds centre in Cheshunt, I had no idea what was in store. I was supposed to prepare a ten-minute piece to perform that night in front of a large audience. I didn't know! Without warning or rehearsal, I was thrust into the ...Read full memory

Was The Sweet Shop Foyles, Near Holy Trinity?

I still remember the thrill of walking down the drive from Cheshunt Sec' School on the last day, with the image of it burning on the back of my neck. Refusing to look back I was saying to myself, "I will never have to walk this path again as long as I live". I remember Farriday with yellow fingers, chain smoking. Does anyone have a good memory to share?

Cheshunt

Yes Valerie - I too have a similar memory of the day I walked home from Cheshunt Secondary School on my last ever day. The sun was always high over Grundy Park during the summer months, and shone down directly onto your neck and head as you walked up Windmill Lane to the Old Pond. That memory of the sun burning your skin as you ...Read full memory

Lotus Factory

I remember back in the early 1960s walking along Dalaware Road and looking into the open doors of the Lotus factory while they were assembling Lotus Cortinas. This meant nothing to me then, but now I am a petrol head and like cars.
