  • Enid, yes I do and my father did play cricket regularly on the Daisy Field. I remember the names Enid Brown and Valerie Wakefield from those Manorway says. Liz is now living in Ipswich with her husband – her two grown-up sons are now living away from home with her 3 grandchildren. It all seems so long ago now – I reached 65 earlier this week and I doubt that my daughters (24 and 22) would relate at all to our childhood in Tilbury. Must go back for a look round sometime. Best wishes.

  • Paul, do you have a sister called Elizabeth, and did you live in Gainsborough ave? Elizabeth Johnson was in my class at Manorway school. I was Enid Brown then. Valerie Wakefield was also in our class. If I recall correctly your dad played cricket on the daisy field?   By Enid Elizabeth Smith.

  • Have never seen this photo and have absolutely no memory of the event but I am 3rd from left in the second row in the light grey jacket, school tie, big specs and the least cool haircut on the planet (thanks mum and dad). Sandra Phillips was in my class at Manorway and, if I remember correctly, she lived over the fire station. Where am I now? Living in Solihull after having retired from BT where I worked as an accountant and I reach age 65 tomorrow. Still have the specs and the big ears but not the haircut!
