The White Hart Pub Purbrook

My Father held a senior position at Brickwoods Brewery in Portsmouth from the late 1940's until the mid 1970's. He and his colleague would stop off at The White Hart for a "quickie" on the way home from work on a Friday.If I was good they would bring me a lemonade before the onward journey home to Denmead. Ahh. Happy days. I now drink something stronger !

School Days

Hi, I remember Mrs Darbey and Mrs Vincent, the school was small and we dressed in the area near the office. I remember when we went to lunch in the hall we walked through the graveyard. Sports Day was always held in the church grounds, great days. When scool finished my mum would walk me past the Black and White Bakery. If you remember me then contact me. Debbie
