Plumstead . my that brings back family memories. Our family came from that area of SE London. I was mostly brought up in Charlton .mostly cos WW2 evacuation split the family till we all came back together after the war.
My mum was at my brothers house in Plumstead in 1980 when she suddenly passed away.

Funny how just one word can spark off memories..

Sorry nothing at all to do with snowy Plumstead today

Its been snowing here too in Rainham Kent

Brings back memories to me too, Shirley. I went to school on Plumstead Common and I lived in Charlton until I was 16.

Shirley and Jaqueline, I lived on Prince Henry Road, up near Shooters Hill. Was Floyd Road near where the sweep lived? I remember walking down there to book him.

Jaqueline, I went to Charlton Manor too at the same time! Small world!

Moved here some 15 years ago from Rotherhither, prior to that lived at the Elephant & Castle.
