Born There 1946 - a Memory of Rainham.

I was born in Upminster rd sth as it is now, opp the cemetery and Buttons shop. Went to Rainham village school then onto Rainham sec. Where my grandad was groundsman Was married in 1966 in Rainham church, run the brownie pack at the hall off Upminster rd then in parsonage rd school.i came back for a school reunion 225 yrs in 2010. My best man as was still lives there. Would love to chat to anyone of that era, there another reunion this year in the village school.
And yes I remember going down Ferry lane to balance on a canoe on the Thames !!
And spent summers in the park in lambs lane, where I actually met my future husband.
