Memories ......

Gordon (Snr) had a woodworking shop on Nelson street, just a short distance from Dereham road, on the left. We used to visit Iris every Monday afternoon, and I often used to pop round the corner to his workshop. It was always knee deep in sawdust and shavings and I can remember the smell even now. I used to make 'airplanes' by nailing two bits of wood together. After he retired from woodworking, he and his wife moved to Hemsby where they lived in a wooden chalet very close to the sea. Flo was a large, nice lady who I believe survived him.

Gordon F. W. Blythe, uncle Gordon, was a lovely kind man as I am sure you remember. He was a bricklayer and died of Prostate Cancer. Despite the many many nieces and nephews he had, he would always slip me a coin or two with a wink and tell me to "be careful boy" - Richard Waspe.

I beleive Gordon was a builder - The thing I remember about Gordon is that he used to drive a big American type car with large fin like wings, I thought it was brilliant and in the 50's very cool. - Ray Taylor
