Catching Tiddlers In The Village Pond - a Memory of Woodford Green.

My name is Jean - maiden name being Hamy and I had a wonderful childhood living in Stanford Close. I have a brother and sister - Janet and Michael. I remember going to the pond - catching small fish and newts - taking them home. I was always playing in Ashton Playing fields pre M11 enjoying the school holidays outside. At that time my friends were Gillian Smith and Margaret Turner. I got married at St Pauls Church and my children were christened there at that time by Reverend Raynes. I still live in Essex and often think of the times growing up in Woodford Bridge.

I also grew up in in Woodford Bridge, in Waltham Road, with my brother John, but left and moved to Cornwall in 1969, when I got married to a Cornish girl in Barkingside Church. I've been in Cornwall ever since, but still have many fond memories.
