  1. Dear John and Joan,I am so enjoying the Palmers Green Tales.What a good idea. I particularly enjoyed Betty Martin’s recollections as I too went to Minchenden School and found the teachers(apart from the young ones) totally out of touch.
    Keep up the good work.! Best wishes Janet (Lane) from the Southgate Civic Trust.!


  2. Thank you so much, Janet. Joan and I have felt very welcomed in the community since we moved to Palmers Green a couple of years ago and it’s nice that we are able to contribute to this excellent project. We also enjoy being members of the Southgate Civic Trust!
    Best wishes from Joan and John.
