Hello, my name is Margaret Evans, used to be Margaret (Sally) Leach.
We moved to the police flats at the top of Honor Oak Rd., when they were first built. I was I believe 4 yrs old at the time, I am now 61 and living in the USA. I originally went to Kelvin Grove School (can't remember where that was, only know if was awful).
I remember a stand of enormous copper beech tress on the property. The original manor house was converted to house officers, etc. Us grunts lived in the concrete flats either side. Transferred from Kelvin Grove school to Christchurch. The headmaster was a Mr. Brough, a thoroughly evil man.
We moved from the police flats to Cranston Rd. My brother, John, and I revisited Forest Hill about 10 years ago. The flat we used to live in vacant at the time and we peeked through the letterbox. It was just the same as I remembered it. I remember going to Horniman's park and museum, also going to the Saturday morning pictures. Went on to the Sydenham secondary school for girls, used to be Shakleton College I believe
It would be so interesting to find out if there is anyone still living there who remembers.
