Happy Days - a Memory of Gillingham.

I lived in Copenhagen Road from 1955 when I was 8 I went to Napier Road School and then Upbury Manor. My best friend was Dorothy Pout. Hard to believe that was 59 years ago. We had great fun down the Strand. On the Lines, being able to play football and cricket in the street - can't do that now. I haven't been back for years. Can remember going to Mudges in Canterbury Street, also to the grocery shop with my mum. I used to work in the wallpaper shop opposite Copenhagen Road (can't remember the name) in the 60's. My first job when I left school was in Dicks shoe shop. Going dancing in the Paget on a Friday and to a dance hall opposite the church in Canterbury Street on a Saturday. All live music then. Lovely days.
