I WAS RAISED IN THE FLATS WHERE THIS WAS TAKEN (CHAVILLE COURT). MY PARENTS MOVED THERE JUST BEFORE I WAS BORN IN 1960 AND THEY WERE THE FIRST TO MOVE INTO THE FLATS! BUT I DONT REMEMBER THE DONKIES, BUT THEN I WAS ONLY FOUR!

My Nan and Grandad, Betty and Harry Stebbing lived in these flats for many years. My sister and I often stayed with them during the summer holidays and helped my Grandad in the garden that he kept at the back of he flats
