Hawkins Bakers, Honey Lane - a Memory of Cholsey.
We moved from Chelsea, London in 1959 to the baker's shop in Honey Lane. My dad was the baker's man and my mum worked in the shop. Brett's garage was next to us and Pete and Fiorella lived opposite. My friends were Jane Sadler and Colin Edwards. There was a sweet shop down the road, Johnnie Preece's, and then Tynan's before you reached the Forty. I went to Cholsey School with my brother Paul and my sister Trish.
I have fond memories of Cholsey, Miss Hearmon, Maggie Davies, and Archie Campbell etc and try to get to the flower show each year. It's good, but not what it was back in the 1960s.
