Hatfield Cottage Crays Hill - a Memory of Crays Hill.
I have amazing memories of crays hill, we lived in Hatfield Cottage Harding Elms Road, my nan and grandad lived there ,then my mum and dad my brother and myself moved in with them around 1958.
I lived there until I married then moved to pipps hill cottage. My other grandparents moved to oak avenue during the war. Loved the little church in crays hill, my parents were married there, my children attended play school there ,I can remember family and friends saving money each week and having parties in the church hall, My brother had a Saturday job delivering milk. We had a lovely village life with wonderful people, Ada Flint , from the shop, Mr. and Mrs Weston from the post office, me and my cousins would go into Mrs Ozmers and buy sherbet powder, those steps up to the door seemed so steep and all the jars of sweets around the shop amazing so lovely memories
