Hounslow In The 50's - a Memory of Hounslow.

Does anybody remember me. I was called June Warne. I lived down St Dunstans road, then Cedar Road in Cranford. I we to Cranford Primary School. I was born in 1945 and have a younger sister called Jackie. I used to have a v good friend called Carol,Bennett who lived on Beavers Lane Estate.
We used to go round with a small gang of boys. I remember we all used to go to Laleham on Sunday afternoons and pile into my dads big old car. My dad was a policeman and my mum was a teacher at Archbishop Myers comprehensive School. By this time had moved to Beresford Gardens off Wellington Road South. I used to go to Spring Grove Central School, but when I was 13 I then went Twickenham a Technical Commercial College at Hampton.
I now live in Somerset but often think of those fun filled days when we had no worries.
I could go on and on.......

Hallo, I went to Woodfield School, loved it so much!
I also attended Cranford Juniors, hated it, had the horrible Miss Andrews.
I lived in Rectory Court! Still in touch with Jackie Brewer and Susan Coleman
JB lived in Stansfield Rd and SC very near the Wellington PH!
How I miss those days, especially Giltrows and Woolworths. Sandy

I used to live at 46, St. Dunstans Road - one of 7 Jones kids (poor old Mum) who all went to Cranford Infant & Junior then Woodfield. I remember Jimmy Wilson and his wife who was a nurse at number 44 and the other side of us at number 42 were the Lyndseys, Fred & Doris with a daughter called Anne. We used to have evenings playing cards at number 42 and they both smoked Embassy cigarettes so you could hardly see the cards for the fog. Fred was a park keeper at Lampton Park and my Grandad Fred Westwood was a park keeper at Inwood Park. I live in Hampshire now but love to see all these memories

Have spoken recently to Bunny. Am contacting him when I get back from Denmark early Jan with a view to meeting up with both of you at Hammersmith to have a nice lunch and drink and remember Ernie. Hope you keeping ok - I am generally ok apart from aches and pains that comes to us all. Met up with Dave Goddard (via Bunny) but it all went pear shaped I’m sad to say. Yes I sent copy to my sister who lives in Denmark and has fantastic memory. She recognised quite a few people but I didn’t. Hope to see you soon. Junex

Dave Goddard has been in touch. It was nice to hear from him again. We had a great connection once. Funny how you remember certain things about people. He camevround my house one Sunday morning and he had jeans on!,,,
My mum and dad thought this was terrible and I had to ask him to go home and put “proper” trousers on I felt so embarressed for him. Funny how things like that stick in your mind. I had a big crush on him at the time. I often tell my grandchildren this when they say my sons are strict with them. At least th e boys that come to their house don’t have to go home and change inton”proper” trousers. How times change. Goodness knows what my parents would think if they saw people walking round with rips in their jeans.

Hello June, I remember you being a good friend of my cousin Carol Bennetts. Unfortunately, Carol passed away in April 2010. Very sad. Her brother Jim is also no longer with us he died at a very young age. Sorry for the sad news. You have comments from Keith Bryant on here .. he was in my class at Woodfield. Kind regards Christine Markham (Tyler) x
