Talkies Community Cinema: SIGHTSEERS at Bounds Green Bowls & Tennis Club

January 13, 2017 from 7:30pm to 10:30pm

Hot director Ben Wheatley (Highrise) won The Standard Best British Film for Sightseers. Not for the faint hearted! We are proud to announce that actor/co-writer Steve Oram has produced a specially recorded…See More

Robert Ayton was born in Russell Road Bowes Park…

Posted on April 12, 2015 at 16:30 1 Comment

Thank you for the message, Richard. I moved to Wolves Lane in 2004 and I like Middleton Road. I accidentally walked into a street event there where I experienced great community spirit.

I'm afraid I told a small lie when I registered for the forum. I listed my address as Arundel Gardens in N21. In fact that was my last address back in 1969, after that I stayed at Truro road. I was a regular at Fishmongers Arms and Springfield Park Tavern. I now live in a village called Crowhurst, near Battle in East Sussex. I still have strong memories of the area having worked at Express Motors and a spell as Road Sweeper.

Thank you Richard for your welcome, it is many years since I lived in the area, but it was the are of my teenage ramblings as you will see if you look at my website www.judydyble.com

I am currently in the middle of writing my biography and this area does feature in it!! I may have to ask people questons on here about it when my memory fails me :-)
