:Classics Book Club London East

Hoping to form a club with a friendly local feel. The venue is minutes from the South Woodford underground station.

We'll be reading books at least 50 years old - the best endure after all, and sometimes it's interesting to read a book a bit different from what's on the best sellers list. BTW this is in no way intending to be intellectual or elitist.

The idea is to meet on the 1st Sunday morning of every month at 11 for chat about the book and life the universe and everything over a coffee/ drink/ brunch/ whatever. I have a regular venue in mind (near tube, roomy, cheapish, hopefully not noisy.)

For more information e-mail me at

My mother Daphne Large lived in Highfield Road at that time. I just spoke to her - she is 80 now so I guess somewhat older than yourself. She said she remembers your family well and was friends with I suspect your older sister - she recalls you came from a big family and had one brother called Billy who she thinks is no longer with us. Billy was friendly with a boy called Robert Beard. She remembers that there were always kids having great fun with various activities in the front garden but when you all grew up it was very well manicured. She remembers that your parents made a staircarpet themselves - quite an achievement hey - hope you are feeling nastalgic. Daphne my mother was extremely happy in Highfield Road - she married whilst there and had my sister Deirdre in 1950 and moved with her parents to Epping.
