Hi – although I’m not in this photo I do know a few of the faces. Back row, 4th from left (with glasses) Adrian Mason, back row right – John Ponsford, to his right Michael Langridge, to his right Graham ?. Front row 4th girl from left Ann Cunningham? And I think back row 2nd from left is Spud Edwards Hope that jogs some memories. Paul Andrew Smith
I would like to correct the dates on this post ,my father George Milford was born in 1922 and moved on to Canvey in 1923 , He is 98 now and still fairly mobile .
Before Beales owned it it was run by the Cuthbert family, the father only having one leg. That was in my childhood from 40s and 5Os.
I believe this shop was known as Beale’s papershop in the late fithties and early sixties.
My dad used to work the doors at kings Johnny said to me that he knew him which was lovely to hear as I lost my dad young xx I no Johnny from langsdon hills golf so sad to hear of his passing lovely man xxxx
A friend and good neighbour. RIP Johnny.

So sad to learn the passing of Johnny he was a legend in his own right with the Gang show and entertained us all for many happy years R.I.P.
Rip Johnny used to work at Kings Thursday nights ( dancing) such a funny lovely man 😇😇

The Property Fairlawn appears some time between Autumn 1924 and Spring of 1925 and owned by Martha Amy TURNER.
She applies for planning for a brick chimney in 1932 and drains in 1942.
In 1956 Mrs H. B. ELMES applies for planning and gives this her address.
Good morning. I was a friend of Karel’s son, also named Karel Machacek, at The Brentwood School in Essex in 1965 to 1966. I would very much like to get back in touch with Karel. I last heard he had married a woman named Helen and was still living in southern England. Would you be kind enough to help me find him? Thank you so much. Tony Balis
My grandparents, Sam and Nellie Morton bought Fairlawns from their friends Alice and John Shaw in the mid 1940s.
I used to train with Arthur on Thursday at Appleton school with some friends Dave Dave Sarah & Jason Bonnie & Jason I would do the double class and again on the Sunday morning for 3hrs. I remember we did a Judo display for Princess Margaret when she visited the Island. Funny enough I was just talking about Cliff Baker Brown and Arthur to Dave Sullivan and decided to google to see if I could find out if Arthur Fisk was a student who fought for England back in the day not just been a coach and in buisness with Cliff. I see Leslie in the 90s when I was a sales rep she was a client of mine. I still have my trophies medals and certificates 🙏
The manager (on the left) is my uncle Horrie Jarvis. He lived in Mayland Ave with his wife Alice and one daughter and three sons. Alice was my Mum’s sister. His mother lived in a bungalow near the Lake. At one time he was manager of Greens Stores at Furtherwick Road, next door to Cockle Jack’s.
Hi Carol Smith (Bonner), I am hoping that we might be in contact regarding family history – your Bonner family? Not sure if it is possible but I will contact canveyisland.org and see. Here’s hoping…..
I think this is possibly around 1955. Jacky Gagg, (now deceased) was a twin. She, her sister Christine and younger sister Elaine (now Stevens) lived in a house in the field in Orange Road. Tony Bradley’s family owned Cockle Jacks at the Haystack. Sara Colognori was the elder daughter of the family who ran the Commodore which was opposite the Admiral Jellicoe.
Yes I am, from memory you were rather shorter than me. Do you still live on Canvey?
Hi bottom left was not mum, she left before then. Doreen Moore. Mum said hi Val
