My Gran & Grandad (Jim & Lilie McDonald) actually exchanged properties with David Cook's parents, Albert & Dolly.

My grandparents were living in a ground floor flat in Chadwell Heath - beside the Eastern Avenue, near the Moby Dick - but Grandad got fed up travelling so far to work in East London, so they agreed to swap homes with David Essex's parents, moving to Avondale Court in Avondale Road, Canning Town, E16.

The switch happened in the summer of 1962.

The agreement to exchange was made between Dolly and my Gran, who worked together at Maycock's Laundry in Green Street, Upton Park.

Hello Folks,
        Just after New Year I was walking my dog when a bloke was doing likewise from the other direction. He gave me a sideways look ( I get a lot of those )  and pointed into the baby cart he was pushing and said “ What do you think of  them colours”.
       With hesitation I peered into the pushchair and saw a lovely baby bedecked in claret & blue. The bloke was responding to the C & B titfer I was wearing. “I’m a West Ham Fan” he says. I then went into one about my views on the Hammers and we parted.
 I spot him from afar the next day as he was preparing to leave a house then on day three we cross again this time exchanging dog based pleasantries at which point I’m thinking  this bloke talks like someone I know, the brain clunks into gear and just as we nod and part  the penny drops Hammers fan and the voice of, aah. Too late and I haven’t seen him since.
I felt annoyed as I’m usually good at recognising celebs and have always admired him for celebrating his roots (especially his support of West Ham ) and we have quite a bit in common-----although not as much as I think according to my missus!

I did read years ago on Friends Reunited that David Essex attended Burke School which I believe was in Balaam Street. Mind you there it could be another David Essex of course.

Hello  every one,

My cousin was a great fan of david Essex , and in her younger days she would travel to see many of his shows,  the strange thing is that david lived not that many miles from where she lived then, and that was in north Woolwich, small world isn't it,.

many regards to you all,

GEORGIAN,
