Visiting Langley Park - a Memory of Langley Park.

Every summer I would go to stay with my mother's friend Clementine Burrell. Clemmie and her husband owned a small shop. I think it was on Front Street but not sure. I would be allowed to weigh the sugar and put it into blue bags. My grandparents were George and Elizabeth Johnson. They owned a newsagents shop which I think was on Quebec Street. My grandfather was a member of the Lanchester Rural Council for 26 years.

Remember 'Clemmie' Burrell and her husband Jack. As a little lad I used to go in for sweets. She used to remark on my 'peaches' complexion. The shop was on Front Street opposite the cricket field.
