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?

Morning Service At St Mary's In The 1960s

Imperial Hall

My husband Ray Nimmo, and myself (Irene nee Ford) met at the Imperial Hall Waltham Cross, it was his first time there and I think the last as we met and fell in love... that was 60 years ago. We have been married for 58 happy years. Would love to have any old photos, also looking for photos of VE Day celebrations in Cheshunt and Waltham New Town, as it was known then.

The Old Pond

On a visit back to the area after a long time away living in Australia. I was dismayed that what was the old triangle with the Old Pond pub in the middle and then changed to a roundabout with a fountain, the area was still known as the old pond because another pub opposite Ripleys was named The Old Pond. I now see that this has ...Read full memory
