Still finding old friends from the prefabs

This month’s meeting saw some ‘new faces’ from 23 Whinhurst Road.

It was lovely to meet Richard Hughes and his daughter Jacqui. Richard moved into the prefabs in December 1947 when he was 23 years old. He had returned from the army after the war. His wife Eileen & his baby son Derek moved in with him. His daughter Jacqui was born 3 years later. They left in 1960/61 and went to live in Allerton.They still both live in that area today.  Derek is in London where he has lived for some years and sadly Eileen passed away some years ago.

They looked back happily at their time in Whinhurst Road & were both able to share many memories with other prefabbers at the meeting & look at the volumes of pictures & archives we hold. Richard, whose memory & vigour belie his 90+ years, also brought along some of his own photgraphers to share.


Richard digs deep to rmove bricks of a buried Nissan Hut from his garden!
