New material for the Village Heritage Collection

At the recent Residents Association AGM, I asked ‘Where is Thames Cottage?’ Nobody was sure, although there was recognition of a few local family surnames associated with it.

For the Village Heritage Collection I want to gather something more personal, more emotionally tangible, which will complement the maps, the photos and the documents, (not forgetting the gas mask, the brick and the Codd bottles), that form the basis of Laleham’s local history collection.

For this I’m seeking and pestering for memories of Laleham from past or present residents. A few weeks before the AGM a friend sent me extracts from the memoirs of Muriel (Danny) Daniels.

Muriel had lived with her mother at Thames Cottage and … well, it’s written from a perspective that few today will have experienced and you’ll have to read it for yourself...
