Didn't Mr Stobie live at what is now Rock House care home, just a short walk to his surgery?

When Darvills was the barber shop at the top of Market Place, was the old chap (well he probably wasn't old but he appeared to me to be old, but then I was just a youngster!), called Mr Waite? And why does the name Brenda Waite ring a bell? Chalfont Common?

Who was the man often referred to as Churchill? He used to always wear a suit and waist-coat.

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

I believe you're right Sid. Where did Winston live? What did he do?

Jack Taylor and his wife Mazy with those two daughters !!! Also had a son

I used to work at the garage next door to Johns cafe on the service road Gravel Hill (now Tescos garage) when it was Chalfont Service Station.
Jack and Maisy Taylor had 2 daughters Libby was one I forgot the others name, but they also had 2 sons, Aubrey and John, Aubrey worked with his dad on the farm over the road and John was a roof tiler, when I was driving around the Chalfonts, you would often see John running up a ladder with the roof tiles balancing on his head.
When I was serving my apprenticeship at the garage one of my first duties was to have to go into Johns cafe at 7am with a breakfast order, mainly for dripping or buttered toast.
I remember having a toasted bacon sandwich but with dripping instead of butter on it, and it was the best bacon sarnie ever, that was a first for me, dripping with bacon I mean.
I would be greeted by John, Ruby, Pearl and Bet, some very very fond memories.
Oh, and by the way, next door to Jack and Maisy Taylor was Jack Shallis a little old man who was the part time tea boy at the garage.

The other Taylor daughter is Margie, I went out with her a long time ago and have many happy memories I knew Libby as well she would sometimes come with us when we went clubbing. My daughter has recently moved to Gerrards Cross and I couldn't resist a drive up Gravel Hill (memory Lane) it looks so different now I don't think their house is there any longer. Does anyone know what happened to Margie and Libby and the Taylor family farm
