Spent many years in kittgreen up to getting married and moving away (my first wife).
As a kid I used to have a paper round and worked for Mr.Blackham.
The old Co-op brings back many childhood memories in particular when it was divi day and my mother used to collect her divi once a year
When there was open fields between Peter St and Bell Lane, plenty a room to play.
Going down to porters wood climbing amongst the trees...don't think its as safe for kids these days to go out on their own playing in the woods...sign of the times no doubt.
Some great childhood memories though....simpler times.
