  1. My wife Bridget & I recently moved into a flat on Jews Walk. We often pass Maple Road, the Pawleyne Arms and the local nick, which is now being converted into flats, and also Bell Green, speculating on what these places were like when you were a lad. Can you remember what the shop with the chrome window frames, opposite the Pawleyne Arms on Croydon Road was? We think it might have been an ice cream parlour, and neighbours in our block mostly hail from Catford, Camber well and Peckham, and can’t remember. Great if you can reply, but don’t rush to, put your energy into getting well asap! My brother-in-law beat it five years ago, and has been clear since, so can you!!

  2. Interesting to read that Bill Wyman grew up in Miall Road, a road named after my ‘natural’ great-great-great grandfather, Edward Miall MP (1809-1881), Editor of The Nonconformist newspaper.
