Lyminge Close

A Memory of Gillingham.

In the mid 50s we moved to Gillingham Lyminge close. We were the first occupants. I think it was number 10 anyway, the corner house facing NE. I with 2 friends started the Twdall scout group and as we had nowhere to go, we used the Kitchen for the first 6 Scouts. Later on we had an ex-Army hut.
I can remember as a student working at a canning factory plucking the stalks off Strawberries. The mouldy or bad ones were separated and thrown in a large container. This container was full of mouldy fruit and wasps. Once a week they came and towed it away. I asked where is it going? To the ice cream factory. Since then I have never eaten Strawberry ice cream.
