Living In Aveley Between 1951 1968 - a Memory of Aveley.
I can remember many good time growing up in Aveley. We used to go to the Botany in Purfleet for the day walking across the pipe on the Mardyke. I went to Bushy Bit between 1959-1963 cannot remember Old Paddy Rice throwing the black board rubber at you if you was not doing what he had told you. (or checking out the senior boys sitting at the front of the class) Also remember him picking his nose and scratching his backside at the same time (lovely memories) also remember Miss Norman and Miss Close and Mr Napier.
I lived in Crescent Walk right opposite the shops in Hall Road with my mum/dad and sister Doreen and my Cousins the Foggs lived in Love Lane my other cousin the Woods lived in Hall Road and my aunt Liz and uncle George Thurogood ran the Aveley Working Mens Club in Mill Road for many years
