I lived in Laindon for years as a boy with my Mum and Dad and so did my Nan, known as Nanna Best. My name is Donald Nelson. Please can anyone tell me if they know of the whereabouts of Reggie Bird who was one of my best mates. Is he still alive? I will be 87 in March and I think he was a little older than me.
I went to Markham’s Chase School and also Laindon High Road School and left when I was 14. I loved Laindon and I would love to come and see the bluebell woods once again. Maybe one day I will. I would also like to know what happened to Harry Russell who married an Adams girl, if someone knows please.
Regards to everyone who lives in Laindon. I am in Australia now. Don.
