Maidenhead Advertiser Photo Archives

Just had a peak into the photo archives of the Maidenhead Advertiser…. I put Bourne End in the search bar to see what would come up. I can’t seem to copy the old articles onto here so I will share the links on our Facebook page…. I recognise a few faces….Pop over & take a look.

Read About Gill’s Memories of Bourne End, 60 years Ago.

Gill Hoare has kindly written a glimpse into her memories of the village when she was a child, around 60 years ago.

Thankyou Gill, I know people will enjoy the read.

Take a walk with me to remember (or, for the new Bourne Enders, to find out) exactly how the village used to look some 60 odd years ago, who were the main players, and just where all the shops were and how the village worked!

Let us start on the Marlow Road at the bottom of Blind Lane where Cressington Place Estate is built – much to the horror of villagers – on The Water Cress Beds – the ever gurgling and bubbling beds that had been there goodness know how long.

The garage is a newish acquisition – the “new build” office block was home to a Solicitors office and others but no longer around. The new retirement complex seems to be where both the Billinghursts Builders yard and the Billinghurst family home were.

The new Co-op on the corner replaced Mr Whites “Corner Shop” selling ice cream, fizzy pop, sweets etc. Sundays in the summer was not complete without a block of vanilla ice cream for pudding – it used to be my task to go and buy it (for 1/-, 5 pence in today’s money) just before the Sunday lunch was served as not many people had a fridge in those days! The ice cream was indeed a treat and always looked forward to on a Sunday! I remember getting into trouble one day while on the ice cream run – on the way home clutching the ice cream, I met a boy who I got talking to for rather longer than I should, and on arriving home clutching a sodden mass found my lunch, cold, on the table and no one talking to me as the pudding was ruined!!

Respect The Water Campaign with RNLI

As we are now coming up to the school summer break, taking a look at the RNLI website with your children could be one of the best things you ever do.

Living by the Thames & the Wye,  we often spend time by the water… taking a walk, making use of the local waterside pubs or taking a trip on a boat & for these reasons we all need to be informed of what to do should someone fall in the river.

The website helps you to think & learn about situations that could occur & what to do if you find yourself in water or see someone else in trouble. The website offers lots of tips & advice at http://www.rnli.org/respectthewater

Introduction of Memorial Page

Last week I received an email from a family who had moved to New Zealand a few years ago. They were very familiar with the area & had been trying to locate a certain person in order to get back in touch. They were saddened to read on The Village Journal that this person had in fact passed away last year. With this in mind, I have decided to add a Memorial page but of course, need your help with the details.

If you feel you would like your loved ones to be included in this, please would you be kind enough to send in a short bio & photo of you family member or friend….. It doesn’t have to be a recent passing,

I have made a start but your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance, Kaye.
