Good evening, In the1950's and1960's we lived in the prefabs overlooking Richmond park.My father was one of the founder members of the Bowling Club,as was President.I spent many hours playing football cricket tennis and bowls in the park.My family along with friends on the prefabs,started the Stradbroke Community Centre when the school was built.It was a very active community in the 1950's,especially when the Stradbroke estate was built.Every Saterday night was a dance in the hall,and visits were made to different places. There were sports days in a field at the top of Stradbroke Road at the back of Richmond Hall Estate,which is now Lamb Hill Close. My father used to train around the football pitch in Normanton Springs,and next to the pitch was a small farm,which had pigs hens and farmer grew grapes in the greenhouses. Hope this info has been of some interest.
