Childhood In Woodford Bridge - a Memory of Woodford Green.

I grew up in Woodford Bridge with my twin sister Jean, friends Norma Overton, Pat Ancona, Lyn, Norma, Gillian and Gloria Jenkinson, and Richard Cutmore. Happy memories of buying hot bread from Rackhams, taking a ride on my brother John's go-cart from The Billett across the road, down past the library into Stanford Close without stopping - unheard of today. Waiting at the number 10 bus-stop for 1p for the guy. Going each week for my mum to Vaughans with £1.10s for the weekly leg of lamb. A lovely place to grow up, I have lovely memories of Woodford. I now live in Cornwall but my heart will always be in Woodford Bridge.
