thankyou Stanley for putting this wedding photo on here. I knew Eileen very well, her parents Mr and Mrs Balmer lived opposite to us in Delgada Road. It was Mr Balmer who alerted us on January 31st/Feb 1st that Canvey was flooding. He asked that we get our family up into loft for safety. He then continued to knock on people’s doors to also alert them. Most of those that lived in our little road came up into our loft space for safety. Eileen’s sister Sheila still lives on the corner of Delgada Road and Maurice Road.
