Have only just discovered this website and it has made me so happy. I used to live in Kennington Avenue and attended the Rushbottom Lane school, remember the Canvey Floods and my mum Betty taking in some left homeless by them. My sister was Jennifer Chapman. Betty used to write skits acted at the Methodist Church next to the shirt factory. We used to roller skate and play on stilts down the factory loading ramp. My friends and neighbours were Theresa Capp, Christine Porter, Paul and Neal Hambridge. Thanks for the memories.
