I was born in Hawkhurst in 1941 went to school there from January 1947 until I got married my maiden name was Jsephine Mary HILLMAN. Ihave been married to Roger. Maynard for 57 years does anyone remember me?

On this 70th Anniversary of V E day, I remember going to the Victoria Hall with my family, friends and neighbours for a lively celebration. This was my first introduction to the Hokey Cokey, Knees up Mother Brown and the Palais Glide which young and old participated in with great enjoyment. Pauline Sims nee Bird
