Hello Julie, I have just found this site and as a many year member of the club I was saddened to hear of its closure. Jane Parkin is right when she said that John Fisk would not have been with us at the 30 year celebration and the picture shows Dave Atwell as she has written. I will write more under the opening of the new clubhouse picture as it shows me and my wife to be just before we married.
I am Howard Embery and we moved to Truro in 2017 If someone could reach out to a Katie and send her our twitter page for the book club I run here in Truro it is @tregollsc It would b3 great to reacquaint
You don’t need to go elsewhere you can read it on here. Tony and the gold bricks. Just click on his name at the top of the article above.
There was a Ray Acraman, but this is his brother and my uncle Roy.
This story gets even more interesting. See Mcleans Magazine, March 25, 1961.
i went to school with them 1969 to 1974
“Oxo” on the Dodgem is Norman Woods; Peter Woods brother.
Right got you.
Indeed the property on the left is Leigh Beck Farm, but the Bungalow on the right, I believe, was called “White House”. Sorry for the confusion.
It’s Leigh Beck Farm Martin. If you look at our category about the farm you will see other pictures including a painting of Clayton’s farm which is the same place.
I believe this property was called “White House”.
There is an article that mentions it here:
Planning for Cyrildene was placed in 1927 and owned by Mr Henry MADDISON and Mrs Emma Sarah MADDISON.
They were still living there in 1929.
The property was vacant in 1939.
This was lovely had to read it from start to finish, as I was born in 1950, this rang a bell for me and my childhood holidays , very very good writing as if you were still a child love it xxx❤️
