Wimbledon Park - a Memory of Wimbledon.
I lived in Durnsford Road. My father had two shops a Florist and a Greengrocers both with the name "Bloom's".
With my mates, we hung around the Woodman Pub, while our dad's enjoyed their pint, I remember they had a nice garden at the side. Went to Wimbledon Park Primary in Havana Road and was part of the gang who built the pond and gardens in the school, which I believe is still there today! (Built to last was our motto and pride). We also went to the Central Hall on the corner of Ravensbury Road and Durnsford Rd, (sadly that is now demolished).
I had many mates in the Durnsford and Revestoke Road areas, would hope anyone out there might remember those wonderful days, including up in the pavilion in Wimbledon Park on a Sunday afternoon, come Winter/Summer.
Does anyone know of the whereabouts of Ron Lancashire, David Purl, Kalin Twins(Singers). Mike Langlois. Did anyone remember David Rainbow, sadly he passed away a couple of years ago.
I married Patricia Harding, who lived in Ravensbury Road, the marriage lasted only eight years!
My email is; email@example.com would be great to hear from anyone who knew me.
All the best and thank you for reading my memories.
