Temperance Hall stories

Folk drawing

Monica Sweeney nee Lawrence born 1930s
My brother, Roy, and myself are in the photo of the children outside the Temperance Hall, well we lived just opposite, you see, at Archlee Terraces. Our house was at the end. Opposite was a hawthorn hedge and we used to go out there at night to watch glow worms there. There were loads of glow worms and it was part of an evenings entertainment to go and watch them.
We went to Sunday School at the Temperance Hall with Miss Griffin. Then next to that was Ted Jennings and he had an orchard up to Chettles, and then there was Chettles and he had a tramp carriage on the bank where he mended the shoes.
