Good Old Days - a Memory of Ash.

My first girlfriend in the early 60s, Daphne, lived in the Chequers pub. I wonder whatever happened to her?

I still live in Ash not far from the Chequers. Unfortunately the Chequers is now closed. I wish someone would buy it and get it up on its feet again, so many memories there.

It's nice to know that you're still there Daphne. I missed Westmarsh so much after we moved to Hackney.

I knew it was you wondering where I was. It certainly was a long time ago. Do you still live in Hackney. I came to visit my brother when I last saw you but he died at the age of 31 . He was killed in a car crash. Have you ever been back to Ash or Westmarsh since you left. Do you keep in touch with anyone from here. I'm not a fan of Cliff now like I used to be more the modern music.

My life has always seen tragedy or upset. I've had a good marriage but at the moment my husband is in hospital and has been there for over a year. He was a builder and qualified nurse, he has suffered with agitation and anxiety for 8 years he's now in a forensic hospital in Maidstone. I do a lot of crying. I'll tell you more when you reply. Yes I am on facebook but I don't write too much as its trust with people reading my messages.
