Re: Sentimental journey
Hi Mac, my mother still lives in Bill Quay has done since 1951, I remember the fields that were there before the houses in Marion Drive, I was still living in Bill Quay until 1970 when I to moved to London, lived in Bayswater for about 5 years. The Cricketers brings back memories of pie and mushy peas that they always served I believe on Fridays, you had to take your own bowl for the peas. Bill Quay in those days had some nice little shops, I worked Saturdays and school holidays in John Brown's paper shop and sometimes helped in his grocery shop, Sharpes butchers were ever so good they had their own killing shops so meat always fresh, mind you I seem to recall if you went to the Methodist Chapel in Bill Quay you seemed to get better meat??? So maybe our pathes may have crossed
during your time living in Bill Quay? I feel, like most places, Bill Quay is a little neglected now such a pity.
