I lived in Cheriton Road from 1956 until 1970, I attended All souls primary and Folkestone Grammar School for Girls 1967 to 1970, I went to Cheriton Baptist Church where I was in the choir, entered the #@*%!ure exams, sunday school etc.

I am trying to make myself a memory book of events and pictures but am having trouble finding photographs so would be very grateful if anyone has any they wouldn't mind sharing with me. I am interested in the uniform of the grammar school - it changed from green when I started to very trendy royal blue suits before I left.

My friend at primary school was Bobby who's parents ran the shoe menders next to Elizabeth's bakers. (now sadly gone).

I returned to Cheriton in 1974 and often spent my lunchtimes in the sunshine caf? so I remember it well.

Was Bobby Dyer related to Sheila, Kathleen, Reg, Peter or Ricky Dyer who lived first in Risborough Lines, then in Canada Close? I married Peter in 1963.

Hi Christine, I don’t know if he was related to the other Dyers that you have mentioned. He had an elder brother called David.

Thanks Barry, I suspect they were not related or I would have heard of them. Coincidence that both families lived in Cheriton though.

Hi Kathrine,
Is Langley your maiden name? I lived in St Hilda Road from when I was born in December 1954, attended All Souls primary and went from there the to the Girls' Grammar School. I also went to Cheriton Baptist church. I remember the shoe repair shop and Elizabeth's well
