Comments about this page

Just discovered this great site. I was brought up in Piddinghoe, just outside Newhavem, My Mother was a clippie on the Southdown buses & often worked the 26 local service. I have many memories which I will share over time, looking forward to getting to know my town again.

Welcome "on-board" Malcolm, we look forward to receiving your input in due course...

John -- Editor
