Stoke Newington compulsory purchase Rectory Rd. N16 1967  

Hi all
I used to live at number 92; it's where the childrens nursery
is now. Anybody remember this event or know anything
about it, or anybody who lived at 92 or the houses in the immediate
vicinity?

In the early 2000's I knocked on the door of the nursery
and introduced myself, told them I used to live on the site.
The lady took me to the back, let me look around at what was left
of the garden. There was still a plank left in the tree, right next to where
the land slopes down to the railway lines - the remains of a tree house,
still there after all those years.
and that tree house was already old when I was a kid in the 60's

Stoke Newington Fleetwood School  

Hello. I live in a place which I think is where you went to school and is now called Fleetwood Apartments. There are apartments in the school building, and 3 new-build houses where I believe there was a bike shed back in the day.
I hope you don't mind me contacting you - my own former school (in Sussex) is also now residences. I have fond memories of the place and feel vaguely sad and resentful about the change, and no particular interest in talking to people (probably a fraction of my age - I am 60 now!) who now live there. But then again, if they are interested in the history of places - as I am myself - perhaps they would love to hear from me and hear my memories of being at school where they now live.
Anyway. Hello. If you'd like to see what the place is like now, please let me know - and if you don't mind sharing with me your memories, I'd be grateful and very interested.
Kind regards
Liz

I was a Fleetwood pupil, 63-70. Have fond memories of the school
and the area. My first teacher was a Ms. Burbank, last teacher
Mr. Timms. It feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago both

Hello
I attended Fleetwood and have some fond memories myself.
I was there from 63-70. I often wished I had got to revisit
the old building, but unfortunately, the chance never came.

It’s more likely that not, that I was there at that fire, as me and my mates were always on that piece of waste ground (what we referred to as ‘Over The Tin’) if not up to all sorts of mischief ‘here, there and everywhere’ else!

Of those other kids I was always with, that you may also remember were: Keith Glover (Sanford Lane) Francis Pridmore (Smalley Road) Brian Webb (Garnham St) David Fedarb (Sanford Terrace) to name but a few!

Talking of fires, do you remember the big bonfires and fire works on the ‘Common’ on Guy Fawkes night - most of the kids of the immediate area were there, usually with their mums and dads.

Definitely remember Francis Pridmore from school. We had fireworks in the back yard - they all got set off at once one year - dad didn't put the lid on the box, always made a guy and went out guying.

One of the saddest memories I have regarding fireworks is when a 'Banger' was put in a bottle and went off in Michael Brace's face and blidinded him for life.

Michael, although a couple of years younger also went to Fleetwood School initially - He actually lived in Smalley Road opposite Francis Pridmore. If you didn't know him I'm sure you'll remember the incident.

Stoke Newington Documentary looking at housing in Hackney  

We are making a documentary for Channel 4 that looks at the current situation in the housing market in London and elsewhere in the UK. One area we are interested in looking at is Hackney borough, an area that has seen dramatic rises in house prices that are impacting on anyone living or trying to move into the community.
We want this to be a comprehensive and authoritative look at the housing market viewed through the experiences of everyone, from first-time buyers to keyworkers to families seeking a larger home.
At this stage, we are interested in speaking with as broad a range of people as possible for background research. If you would like to share your experiences, we would like to hear from you.
Please contact producers Dan Trelford  Mail-me  and Sreya Biswas Sreya.biswas@voltage.tv or telephone 020 7290 0700.
