New Shops - a Memory of Ascot.

Warren Row was built to provision the people of Bracken Bank, Fernbank Place and Wentworth Way + roads off. The end shop by Bracken Bank was a butchers, the third in was the newsagent and the end one by Fernbank Road was grocers. Also there was a hairdresser next to grocers. We came from the Warfield Park where we lived in a Nissan hut up to 1952 then got a "council house" at 45 Bracken Bank (2 bedroom) then moved to a 3 bedroom at 24 Fernbank Place. At 18 were the Greenaway Family, 20 were Harry & Family, 22 the Pennells Family and us at 24 with the Levinsons at 26 and the Scott Family (Dear Doris) at 28 - opposite us lived the local matron / nurse / called Tuck. She bought me and many others into the world. Also opposite were the Beasleys and further up Susan & mother.......
Finally further up on our side were the Houlihan Family (maybe No. 30) with their daughter Margaret and 2 brothers. My best friends were Richard Cleverley, Keith & Richard Ingram who all lived with their families in Bracken Bank. Me and my brother Trevor were all great mates with these 3.
