Lovely Childhood - a Memory of Wimbledon.
I was born at St Hilliers, Carlshalton and lived in Pelham Road for the first 5 years. I started school at 4 in Pelham Road School. Then we moved to Mayfield Road and I went to Dundonald School. We moved away in 1961 in the London overspill scheme. I still am homesick after 50 years and go back whenever I can. We get the train and go to the theatre. I love just walking around, looking at the houses our family lived in and owned. I always get a tear in my eye. My heart is definitely still in Wimbledon.
