My grandma also had a bungalow on Green Lane which my uncle built. I started school at the age of 5 in Skipsea village and would walk there and back with my brother. In the summer hols it was great as we had more children to play with
when they visited from the towns of West Yorkshire. Gram's bungalow was called Ken-Dor. It sadly went into the sea. How we all still mourn the loss.
