My Memories - Kathy Harman


I was born in Newport Pagnell, the Westbury hospital in 1962. I lived on the Saints estate, in Bletchley with my three brothers and one sister. My parents Joe and Olive had moved down from London and loved their new home on the Saints Estate. It was great growing up in Bletchley as everyone knew everyone, or knew brothers, sisters or parents. We felt very safe, in this small community. I loved meeting up with friends at the Compass club, and dancing the night away. Then, the older we got, we moved on to Peaches night club, which was previously Tramps and then changed to Razzels. I  left home and purchased a home on the Windmill hill, where I lived with my then boyfriend, now husband. I today live in Tattenhoe, Milton Keynes with our two children. We watched the house being built and we finally moved in 1997.

  • Hello
    In response to a request about staff at Westbury Lane, when it was a maternity unit, a lady in my road worked there. Her name was Mrs Boodon and she lived in Withington, Bradville in 1980s

  • It was an even nicer place to live back in 1952. My Father, Mother, and younger sister moved here from Brighton in April of that year. We lived on the Saints Estate and it felt like a palace. We even had a garden of our own. There was a farm nearby, Mr & Mrs Gibbs at Badlands Farm. She made the most wonderful butter, and they sold eggs. They always called me Saundry for some reason. This small country town was an ideal place for children to grow up in. Then, as we got older, Top of The Pops at Wilton Hall was where it all happened for us. It is not the same now, progress happened, and sadly, not always for the better.

  • My brother was born in 1962 and i came along in 1970. He met his first serious girlfriend in Peaches.
    Bletchley was great back then, we loved Bletchley Leisure Centre with its slide, its not the same now sadly.
