Willingdon Church Hall - a Memory of Willingdon.

Referring to the photograph ref: W446012 I used to attend Sunday School in the pictured church hall from the mid 1950's to 1960 the teacher being Miss Parris. I also went to Cubs at the Memorial hall opposite the church hall (out of picture to the left) at the same time. I remember the A22 being the main road between Eastbourne and London and pre speed limit days there were many fatal accidents on this road, mostly at Lower Willingdon where I lived at 77 Eastbourne Road. I now live in Brisbane, Australia.

I also attended the Sunday school there with Miss Parris, in the 1960's, and Brownies at the Memorial Hall opposite. My mother was very involved with Amateur dramatics and used to write and perform sketches with her friend Beryl Bainbridge, at both places, as well as being a 'leading light' in the annual Willingdon Panto! I once stood on that corner with the Brownies to watch the Queen driving past, it was a bt of an event.
