I remember the Oak tree on the green I used to climb that as a kid. Others were more adventurous than me, at some point it had been pollarded and the top of the trunk was actually flat and some kids used to climb to the top and sit on it.
Jacqui Richardson
I climbed the tree in the background many a time, until someone fell out and broke their arm, they cut it down. Health and safety went wrong way back then .

I think these houses were just up from Mum's house. I remember I was stuck indoors when this was going on I had Chicken Pox but at 16 years old it would not have been cool anyway to have anything to do with a street party!
