Growing up in the High Street
134 High Street
I lived next door to Youngman’s shop. Dorothy gave me a Saturday job and woe betide you if you sampled the sweets!! Reg also ran a printing business.
I was in the same class as Susan Odell and Terrence Lockhart. I use to sit next to Stuart Blackie and I clearly remember the day of the 11 plus results. Tom Edwards was concerned that Terence should not feel left out.
My mother Nayda Affleck was a staff nurse in Casualty and I am still in touch with Jenny Simpson whose mother was Captain of the Girls Brigade.
