I remember Percy Grillo he used to come to our house for a cuppa, as my step brother worked for him. My step brother started with Percy with an ice cream fridge and a bycicle on the high street on the corner by the pond. I see a photo of The Odeon cinema in north watford ( or the pictures as we called them ) saturday mornings was our treat going to saturday morning pictures, being left in suspense wondering if hop-a-long cassidy would be alive for the next wek ha ha. Also we used to change our farthings for bread at the yorkshire bakery on st albans road and it was still hot mmm lovely what a treat. Anyone out there used to go to callowland infants 1954-1956 and later the boys school up the road 1956-1959 then we moved to the meriden estate. My fatheer used to go hunting for rabbitts at the weekends so we had good stews, my uncle knew a good spot to fish for pike which was great for us when he came to visit a lovely big pike for dinner. Hope this has stirred memories in you take care all.
