In 1945 my parents and grandparents moved to ‘St Hugh’.
My grandparents, Mr and Mrs Baker, converted part of the ground floor into a café in the late 40s early 50s and a caravan park to the rear.
My parents lived on the first floor. Dad converted the roof space into a flat not long after moving in.
It was sold in 1957 to Mrs Lacey.

Are you the Les I knew at Leigh Beck primary? I used to visit Riverside Café on the way home from school. You would give me shoulder rides in the school playgrounds.
Yes I am, from memory you were rather shorter than me.
Do you still live on Canvey?
