Growing Up In Whitleigh During The 1960s. - a Memory of Whitleigh.

My memories of growing up in whitleigh were happy ones, as youngsters we were blessed with having such big fields and of course the woods to explore and play in.The fair [WHITELEGGS] would arrive during the summer and would remain in Damerells field for many weeks.The long hot summer days seemed to be endless and we never wanted to come home unless our bellies told us to, we all remember November the 5th Guy fawkes night and how we came home smelling of smoke and getting a clip cross the ear.The many trips to the local orchards and scrumping apples our poor jumpers always ended up three sizes bigger.These are just a few of my memories of growing up in whitleigh.
