HAMPTON, AROUND AND ABOUT

Things you may not know, or didn’t know you knew!

No 25 OLD PICTURES OF HAMPTON

On Facebook there is a new local history group;
Hampton & Hampton Hill History (inc. Hampton Court/Wick & Bushy Park)

It has only just started but is well worth a look for photographs and memories of the local area. Jason Dorner (much thanks!) has posted a lot of photographs and instead of me rambling on, I have selected a few from the immediate area…..
NB Unable to reproduce photos here, you will have to buy the progtramme!

So, another season comes to a close. And after 14 years and 313 local history articles in the Match Day Programme, it is time to call it a day. I thought that I would only find enough stuff to write about to last the first season. Who knew!

Well done Les, these have been a consistently enjoyable read and ought to be compiled in a book.

Because it's a slow news day, thought you might like to see a picture of Beveree in 1946 before the ground became a permanent sports field.
