    Can anyone tell me what was on the site where Queens Drive is now? When I was a child, our family were one of the first residents of that road in 1962.

    [David Rose: it was most likely the gardens of a fairly large house called Helmsley that stood on the corner of Stoughton Road and Worplesdon Road. It had been converted to flats prior to it being demolished.]

    My grandparents, Andrew and Violet Chew, lived at 223 Stoughton Road.

    My dad was Wally Chew. He had two brothers, Frank and Len, and two sisters, Ethel and Rose.

    Does anyone remember them? Thank you.
