It has just dawned on me that it was fifty odd years ago – 1957 that I, along with many others, relocated with our families to Torbay from Ilminster.
How lucky we were to be relocated to this beautiful part of the country – it could have been anywhere – Blackpool, Leicester, Manchester. Yes, how lucky we were. Not that I felt it at the time – I missed
The prefabs
The willows
The Rec
The close-knit community
Herne Hill
My friends.. So very many things and, fifty years later I still regard Ilminster as my HOME.
Where have those fifty years gone?
Where are all those Summervale kids who would now be in their 60’s & 70’s?
