Early Memories
Russell has lived in Newick Road all his life. Josie moved to North Moulsecoomb when she was seven years old. Both knew each other when they were seven years old and spoke of playing out all day and scrumping apples. Russell shares a humerous account of getting caught on the Everitt's fence whilst trying to get into their garden to scrump apples. Russell's coat got stuck and he was left almost hanging upside down!

As a child Josie used to play 'Postman's Knock' and says it was "harmless fun - that was our fun in those days". The rest of the group agreed and said that the kids were content in those days.
