Winchmore Hill And Palmers Green Memories - a Memory of Winchmore Hill.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MY BACKGROUND: My mother Milly and father Bert moved to Winchmore Hill from Camden/Kentish Town. I was born in 1944 at The North Middlesex Hospital in Edmonton. I grew up initially in Arundel Gardens (23). I went to a Mrs Smith's nursery in Compton Road, followed by Highfield JMI and Winchmore Secondary School. My brother Derek was born in 1955. We moved to Queens Avenue in 1957. I played guitar in three local rock bands throughout the 60s.
I was for 6 years a compositor's apprentice at Bennett & Starling, Windmill Hill, Enfield. As a Journeyman I worked for typesetting companies in the London EC1 area.
I moved out of N21 from 1970-1976 returning to live in Green Dragon Lane, my sons both first attending St Paul's School, then the eldest to Enfield Grammar the youngest to Southgate School.
I remarried in 1998 to Liz, in 2001 we moved to our current home in Hemel Hempstead.
I HAVE MANY PERSONAL HAPPY MEMORIES OF WINCHMORE HILL AND INSPIRED BY A LOCAL FACEBOOK GROUPS IN HEMEL, CAMDEN AND ISLINGTON, DECIDED TO START UP THIS FACEBOOK GROUP: Winchmore Hill And Palmers Green Memories. I HOPE WE CAN SHARE MANY MEMORIES, STORIES AND PHOTOS. IT'S AMAZING WHAT THIS TYPE OF GROUP CAN REVEAL ABOUT OUR AREA. Rick
