    Hi Kim. Saw your name on the web and thought this cannot be the Kim I used to be friends with as a young girl in Lorraine Road !! I remember my mum making me go to your house when Wendy had mumps hoping that I would get it too … I didn’t, but I seem to remember you looking swollen on one side. Haha. Looked at the photo’s in the time line and couldn’t believe it really is you. I am so impressed at all you have done and achieved and so amazed that from Old Dean you have travelled and worked so hard to promote animal welfare. Well done x I just couldn’t pass this site without leaving this message for you.

    Kathryn: Many thanks for your message. Congratulations on your childhood memories. I only wish mine were as good as you can recall them! Did you know that our home and others alongside them were demolished and replaced? The road itself has also changed. Kim

    Kim: Yes, I heard that they were going to demolish the bungalows and rebuild the area. I think they’ve put in some flats (you can get more people homed that way). It’s a shame they have taken more of the woodland too.
    I live in Fleet so not so many miles away from Camberley!! Next year though we are going to Italy to live for 11 months. So looking forward to that.
    Thanks for your reply.
