My name is Keith Nock I was born in bungalow called Ashdene on A127 between Church Rd. and the flyover in 1950. I remember the winters were bad, snow was really deep. I also remember the fog being so bad, that cars on A127 just crawled along.
I attended Laindon Park school in 1955. I always remember Cooper’s shop in Church Road where we got our sweets. After that went to High Rd. school, I left in 1965.
I remember our bungalow had an outside toilet, dad had to stand by the door while mum used loo. One night mum went to go out and there was old tramp on seat, what great days. I have really enjoyed reading all the stories of Laindon residents on the website
