They were still building Broadfield Road and there was no school, it was just a field. Any time we always had to walk down town, we didn’t have any shops here. Queens Square wasn’t built, then they built the church and I remember the Adeyfield Hall being built. Where the field is, nearer to Adeyfield School there was a hut there and we used to have any meetings in there because I, there was a Co-Op Guild formed here and that’s where we used to meet, I belonged to that. Then of course, Adeyfield School was built, watched that being built.
