Deptford Deptford Watson Street Coronation Street Party  

Can anyone remember the party that was held at the Institute in Watson Street because of the rain I was not quite three at the time but I can remember wearing a white dress with red dots on it made from crepe paper and the boy I was with had I think red trousers and a white site made out of the same paper, it was his mother who made the outfit she lived I think at the top of Speedwell Street, we must have won the competition because we were made DUke and Duchess of Deptford for the day, I would love to find out who the boy was and if he remembers that day. I do have a photo with us dress up and holding out winners plaque. My name is Amelia Evans and my email address is  Mail-me

Well done David, it's great to hear stories like yours, a credit to yourself, unlike the 'poor me' brigade today that wont help themselves but rely on the state for everything.

Deptford Juett/Powell Family - Deptford 1950s / 1960s  

I'm trying to contact members of the Juett & Powell families, specifically Nancy Juett who married Edward Powell in 1958 in Deptford. They had several children, Russell born 1959 and Michael born 1964. Not sure if There were additional children/siblings, but possibly Penny, born 1963 and Clive, born 1966. If any of these names are recognisable, and you have news or suggestions on the whereabouts of specifically Nancy Powell nee Juett, then I'd love you to get in contact. I'm hoping any news will help fill some missing gaps in my own family. Email :  Mail-me
