name is Eileen Watts (nee Jackson). I was born in Cottingham and lived
there until I married in 1967. My mother lived there for most of her life.
my father was a scout master along with Mr Porter and I have a lovely
photo of the group. I am not sure when it was taken but my father died in
1961 so obviously it was some time before that. I can name most of the
people on the photo. I was also a Guide leader with the 1st Cottingham
Guides. Sadly I do not have any photos of that, but I am still guiding 30
odd years on!
worked for sometime in the post office along with Midge Claypole and my
mother worked in the post office on the Corby road for many years. Sshe
also helped the village nurse old Nurse Crowson with delivering babies and
also the local undertaker, Jack Buswell with laying out!!
Sadly she died last year aged 86. I know your researcher Irene very well
she also knew my mum. Your website is great it is so lovely to look back
and also to read letters from people. I do visit the village quite often
sadly my brother is buried in the churchyard.
you are interested in my photo you are quite welcome to have a look.
Unfortunately I do not have the technology to send it down the line, I
have only just got logged on to the 21st century.
Carry on with the good work!
