  1. “High Street by Chapel” Pretty confident that is my mum Jane Green (nee Wyatt) pushing my eldest brother Steven Green in the pram (he was 50 this year). Sister Tracey pulled along behind! The Greens were long time residents of BG.

    Colin :
    I attended Wrotham Secondary Modern with your mum – we left during 1955.
    I regularly used to see her, and her brother George, while they were living at Tollgate Estate.
    I remember your mum and dad being very good friends with Sandra Harris and Ralph Gill; late 1950s/early 1960s.
    My mum worked with your grandmother (Mrs. Green) during the early 1960s. They went on holiday together to the West Country/Widecombe in the Moor.
    I wonder how many will recognise your mum, at aged 25, in the photo?

    Colin :
    Here your mum has dark hair with her bob cut.
    For those who remember her from before, it’s quite difficult to recognise her.
    She had longer straight hair, almost to her shoulders. It was light brown, with natural thin honey streaks – and she had light, healthy-looking skin.
    I don’t know how I’m doing with my description, but with either appearance she looked good.
