Gills Cottages - a Memory of Wouldham.

My memory of Wouldham is my uncle and aunt Sid and Shirley Buss used to live at 3 Gills Cottages. I was working up at Thorn AEI at Rochester airport in the Payroll Department. A woman worked there called Margaret and she came into work one day all excited saying that she had won a Food Hamper. She then told us that she was really shocked because she hadnt entered any competitions. Imagine my surprise when I found out where Margaret lived? She lived at 3 Gills Cottages, Rochester. What a coincidence? That I should be working in the same office that Margaret worked in. Needless to say she was a bit peeved to think she hadn't won the hamper. She was kind enough to let me get in touch with my aunt and uncle and give them the good news.
