Thinking back to our days in Beech Road in the 1950s it was a wonder none of us was seriously hurt. From racing down Fuller Road hill on our trolleys, to stone fights using our dustbin lids as shields, making bows and arrows in harebreaks reck and using them in cowboys and indians duels ha ha great times. Playing games, lighting fires in the air raid shelters in harebreaks reck. Scrumping was always a great thrill too, we used to scrump at a house next to the salvation army on st albans road, one day w got caught and the woman said if we wanted the fruit jus knock on the door and ask , we didnt do it anymore ha ha instead we went down to the bridle path and scrumped from an hotel there, what fun we had. Sadly bygone times.
