Christmas Eve - a Memory of Ashford.

I can remember being taken to Ashford on Christmas Eve and visiting Rabsons toy shop in Middle Row It was a magical place for a small child and I gazed at all the toys in wonder. I can remember anxiously asking my mother whether we would be home in Pluckley before Father Christmas came!

I loved that toy shop! Always spent my pocket money and birthday money there in 50/60's
Bought ladybird books, farm animals etc. I lived in Brook and travelled to Ashford by bus with my mum Peggy Elliott.
