Greek Girl Wed at Laindon 22nd August 1959.

By Andrea Ash (Nee Pinnell)

Gloria Muir (nee Sewell) once asked 'what happened to the beautiful Greek girl who came to Laindon High Road School?'  Well sadly too late for Gloria to know, but I have been with that Greek girl today (30th April 2016) - my friend for many years, Olga is her name.  Today she gave me a wedding day photo that appeared in the Basildon Standard, so perhaps someone else may recognise her too?

I knew of Olga as I lived nearby in Kathleen Ferrier Crescent and often saw her passing by. On her wedding day I was playing cricket with a bunch of mates in the field next to her house when the bridal car arrived. Everything stopped as she walked with her father to the car. The neighbours were all out to wish her well. I remember her smiling and waving to everyone thanking them for their good wishes. As the car drove off the cricket resumed. I was ten in 1959.

I remember Olga; I remember playing netball with her.
