Anne Norrey memories of Henry Road

by Anne Norrey memories of the Henry Road

Yeah, there was another park which was Henry Road Park which was at the top of, erm, Harvey Road. And, erm, I hadn’t used to play over there because at that time it was a refugee camp and I can remember, as a little girl, being inquisitive and walking through it. And even as a little girl I can, I found it shocking, how they were living. You know, there didn’t seem to be any proper toilets or… and they, you know… as a little girl everything seemed dirty, you know, everything was strawn everywhere and… Not nice at all, but I didn’t realise exactly what they were or who the people were. But, as I say, later on I realised that that’s what they were, refugees.
