My parents were one of the first to move to New Addington onto the Boots estate from Peckham before I was born. I have very fond memories of growing up there attending Wolsey infants and junior schools, moving onto Fairchildes secondary modern school, (didn't pass the 11 plus) opting out of evening classes to go to the Hilltoppers club. I loved every minute of it. One of my sisters was involved in the Carnival and the organising of the begining of the Hilltoppers and the pictures (cinema) that was held at the community centre. I eventually moved away on marrying a thornton heath man, not a good move!! Visit NA occasionally and feel much at home, although some seem to think it not a good place, what is!!!
