Re: Prospect Place, Wells Road

Hi David, it seems they were quite a group, all living to such a grand age.My lovely mum Mollie died aged 89 in 2011, she was bright, cheerful and positive all her life, and often spoke of her friends from her childhood.Eva still has a great recall of people and events....she has been the family his...

Lesley Tripp lived at the top of Prospect ...
