Well it was nice when the Queen’s Square opened, I remember the Queen coming. She, it was St. Barnabas Church, wasn’t it and I took my young son and we went over and we heard her speak in the Queen’s Square. Then of course we all lined the streets as she went by, walked into Windmill and she went down there in her carriage and we all walked there to wave to her. Well it was quite, really good really, you know, it was something that had never happened, I don’t think I’d seen any royalty really before. She spoke very well, very good, I can still picture it now.
