Hi Jim,
Thanks for your reply. Lovely to hear from someone from the village. Since Sheila died I find not many people are interested in discussing old times. How long have you lived in Canada? I will e-mail you my address. Bye for now Brenda

Brenda Simmons:

Hallo Jim,
Yes, you were right. Brenda was the oldest in family and Pauline was younger. I think Ian was eldest n family. They lived up the front road, near grannie Mitchells. I was first thinking of the other Haffendens who lived round the back road at the Marlpits. They were Ian, Gill and Roger.

Sheila and I lived in Lower Street. Yes, she was there when Mr. Woods was headmaster,
I see Allan when I go back home to Ninfield. He still lives at the gardens at Lowwr Street.

We had the other half up near Moorhall. Allan did have firework making and his mate died when they blew up the shed in the orchard. Think his name was Bob, but not sure. Do you remember Cynthia Guest. She is still around. I saw one of te Spandleys from back road, last summer. I could goon for ever. I think you mean Vaughan Pont or Mark Pont fromthe butchers Vaughan commited suicide a few years back.

Would love to see some photos. Doing family history I enjoy all the old photos. Thank you.

Bye for now, Brenda

Does anyone have information on the Simmons' who used to live at Cowden Farm in the
late 1800s. One of the children there was my grandfather Richard Simmons. I would appreciate any news from past concerning them.
I know a lot of them are buried in Wartling churchyard. Thank you. Brenda Simmons

Hallo Caroline,
Glad to hear from you. My cousin Allan let me read the book and I was so impressed with it. My dad went to school when he was teacher at Ninfield. I was looking to have a copy of the book, but thanks very much for the offer of looking in it for me. Tried to get one from Amazon, but don't have it at the moment, but they might get one later on. Bye for now, Brenda
