Living In Horndon On The Hill

My name is Lee Struthers. I lived in Horndon back in the 1960s with my parents and sister at Alwin on Hilcrets Road, we moved to New Zealand in 1968. I have just been back for a visit, July 2010, went to the Bell for lunch. What a great place Horndon is, loved the place, wish I could have spent more time there. I remember going to school there and going to Cubs & of course church.
