Hi Everyone, my name is shirley and i was born in chalfont as was my father before me, all of my three children were born in chalfont and lived there until we emigrated to australia in 1976.

I have been reading the messages on here for quite some time but have been a bit worried about joining as i am not very computer literate and was worried about doing something wrong, my son has just joined me up.

I know quite a lot about chalfont from about the late 1930's, what prompted me to join is that i have been following the discussion on the broadway cinema  ( The Flea Pit ) i may be able to shed some light on some things about the cinema as i spent a lot of time there in my youth and in the hall next door taking dancing lessons during the war years.

hope to hear from someone soon.

Hi Shirley and welcome to the forum. Don't worry about doing anything wrong, it's all fairly relaxed on here and new members are always made to feel at home.

There is a memories section and I am sure people wold love to hear about your memories of Chalfont if you care to jot them down.

You are not the only ex-pat either so I am sure you'll be receiving messages from our other Aussie members.

Hi Shirley, a big welcome to the forum!
 
Whereabout in Oz are you? Two lots of my friends have emigrated in the past year, one couple to Sydney, the other to Perth..I'm quite envious of them!
