I went to Mayfield School in Goodmayes Lane, which moved to Christie Gardens in 1953. I’m not too good at remembering names, but Miss Tappenden seems to ring a bell so I guess she must have been the Headmistress while I was there. I left the school in 1956 and my family and I came to Canada in 1957.
I married a Canadian and it lasted for 10 years. He was an abusive alcoholic so we parted. I met my new partner a year later and we have been together ever since. He is English and came to Canada when he was 30 years old.
I am a hairdresser and I also sell Avon Cosmetics. I live just outside Toronto in a Town called Keswick, Ontario. I have kept in contact with my girl friend that I went to school with. She still lives in England so I don’t see much of her, but we exchange Christmas cards every year with updated news. I had two other friends one was called Sylvia Lewis and the other one was Sylvia Miller.
