I have been thinking a lot lately about Cookham history of 60 & 70 years ago. I would like to hear from those memory is still vivid of those years. My memory gets a refresh everytime I see the video "Good Night Mr. Tom."
I mean there must be a few like myself who are computer literate who lived in the village during that era, an era when the village pulled together as one, with some very interesting stories to be told, those who remember and I quote nom-de-plumes of several characters:
"Big Ben", "Agnes Halfpenny", "The Gaffer", "Toots Wooten", "Mrs. Cheeseman", "YaYa Hughes", "Dad Sexton", "Dolly Drew", "Snotty Graham", "Sally Salberg" and "Gandhi Wheeler" That is just a few that went to make up the village colour.
Anyone with these memories and would like to tell me their stories they can reach me via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As I am needing some more flesh to add to the skeleton of my book based on that period.
