Preparing for war

Some houses were being built at this time. One was an extension on the end of 115 The Limes. The builder was Arthur Hayward of Great Bradley and the bricklayer was Cecil Webb. Charlie and Lily Fountain moved in just after it was completed.

Mr Sargent built a bungalow at Little Thurlow Green, where Sunningdale is now. It was built for Mr Akehurst and his son David, who were our neighbours in the Street. It was called Sunnyside. Mr Sargent also built the pair of cottages, 137a and 137b, called Locks Cottages, but I cannot remember when.
