Wow, welcome Paul :lol:  We all remember different things about Downham (some through rose coloured glasses I am sure), but one thing  always comes through and that is how hard our parents worked to give us a decent upbringing (grandparents included). Nobody had much in them days, but what they had they shared. Regards Bel

Hi Paul.we aren't fussy about the niceties of spelling or mis=hitting keys so you hit an I for an O  (They are adjacent ) and intend to type "shot" your friends understand . we can tell you about downham and its vagaries, but you have to be born there or have lived there. like your Dad and uncle Tony to fully appreciate the melting pot   that Downham really was . Where the people from the first war rose from the slums and moved into a brand new home on a large estate of others just like them to produce the children who fought the next and second war but we had fun, made friends and produced a better kind of person , the sort our parents wanted us to be. nice to have you aboard Paul    Dickie....
