Welcome to London Kenton


I did work for George in the greengrocer shop Kenton Rd

back in 1963 I was 17 at the time, for a time as we move house in 64, I remember the bike George would tie a large wooden Banana box on the carrier so as to get more on the bike some time's tip up if you was not on it,

I remember the large sacks of Potato's in the shop hall way,

also boiling the Beetroots out the back in an old boiler,

As you said very sad George having his Legs take off the last time I see them George.. Bill .and Ron would be 1964

I do remember Bill and his loose teeth.

I remember George Durrant

I had a Saturday job at George Durrant's when I was still at school, delivering fruit and veg on one of those old-fashioned trade bikes with the carrier on the front. Bill was no longer around then. I remember him, though, with his ill-fitting dentures. I think that he and his brother had a falling out over something and he had gone by the time I worked there.

I think that there was another brother called Vernon who had his own greengrocers in Cricklewood or somewhere.

I think George used to live somewhere around Wembley Hill. Last I heard of him, he'd had both his legs taken off. Very sad.

There was another chap called Ron who worked for George for some years. I think he started driving buses when George eventually closed the shop.

I suppose they're all long gone by now.

How Kenton has changed. I'm glad I don't live there anymore.

GCSE tuition Offered (maths, sciences, english, art)

I have been a tutor for 3 years now, and have been awarded by teachers and students alike in the Uxbridge and Harrow areas for simply acheiving the best of the best. My students average an A-A* because I don't leave until my planned lesson criteria has been satisfied.

I'm extremely easy going, adopt a relaxed fun and interesting working environment; relaxing the left side of the brain so that both loaves work rather than just one. With me you'll have a fun time getting top grades, a teacher and a person to talk to and call for any reason. I am on messenger and offer 24 hour consolidation via phone or internet.

I can travel anywhere in london, my rates are one of the best.
