  • I lived next door to Joan and Jerry and their family. My two sisters and I played with Billy, Johnny and Susan. I remember watching Princess Margaret’s wedding round their house because they had ITV! I have often wondered about Arundel Grove because, as they say, Milton Keynes destroyed the Bletchley in which we grew up. My late Mum, Mary, always mentioned Susan and wondered how she was doing. I remember Rock’n’Roll nights at the Working Men’s Club, the swimming pool with Joan telling us off (!) and Saints Junior School. A great childhood!
