I Once Lived Here - a Memory of Aveley.
I lived over the second shop on the right. KENNIES STORES which was owned by my grand parents. We as a family lived there until 1962 when we left for New Zealand where I still live. The first shop was a butchery owned by Mr & Mrs Mapley who also came to New Zealand following their son Dennis. Reids was the next which was a stationers and then from memory there was Perks Grocery, a fruit & veg shop owned by the Harpers & the chippy on the end who i only remember as fishy Jack. The actual shopping area was known as The Parade.
