Ashford - a Memory of Hothfield.

I used to work in the Chicken & Grill that was situated behind the tank in Ashford; it was a very busy little cafe especially lunchtimes; I met my second husband there; resulting in 42 years together till he died in 2006.
Another popular place was the Bon Bon in the High Street; mostly teenagers would gather there in the evenings & it was where I met my first husband.
The Toffs Jaz Club was very popular around this time; also The Three Jays.

There was a roller skating rink in Ashford at this time also very popular.
