Memories of Blewbury

Read and share your memories of Blewbury itself or of a particular photo of Blewbury.

My mum Olive Mary Broomfield known as Mary, was born at Brookside West Brook Street. Blewbury. It was originally The Old Wool Shop and was run by my grandmother Minnie Alice Broomfield [ nee Brogden ] . My grandfather was Charles Broomfield but always known as Ben.

My friend Catharine (Katie) was also at this school in 1946/47, about 7 years old before moving to South Africa. I remember walking in a crocodile line, carrying a hot brick to keep warm, on the walk to the vicarage. Mostly happy memories of Laurie & sisters Phylis & Dorothy Williamson & Prue. Miss Maggs (Sally) looked after the animals in the orchard.
