After the first get together of the 'kids' from the original Mile Oak estate in 2008, I wondered if many would join us this year. They did, and the weather was perfect. It was lovely to meet up with everyone again, and some new faces. Thank you all for coming along and making Mile Oak Revisited Reunion 2010 a success. Hopefully we can plan another reunion in a couple of years, depends on where, what, and who is interested. And if Mary can get all her chores done that have apparently been waiting since the last reunion to be completed. We are so lucky to have Mary in Mile Oak, such a wonderful organizer. Thanks Mary for all you managed to accomplish, also thanks to your son and friends for cooking the barbeque. Through the last two years, David Elliott has, with help from the Dream Team, published the book, Mile Oak Birth of a Community. For myself I have never had so much fun in all my travels round the world than meeting up with my childhood friends. I encourage you all to dig back into your memories of the old Mile Oak. We still want to hear the stories of "so long ago" before they slip away into the realm of "I cann't remember that far back".. you know what I mean. Surely our parent's favorite sentence when questioned about the "good old days".

Bonny, your next door neighbour was always good touch for a shilling, just pick some flowers from your garden and give them to her. Mile Oak was good for adder catching, definitely scrumping, haystack climbing, summer grass sledging, winter sledging, bomb finding, bullet finding, bluebelling, strawberry/blackberry/sloe-collecting, Roman artifacts, dew ponds, rabbiting, lizarding, chalk pit, birds nesting and more. Always made for a good childhood. Marion Ditton was OK too. Paul Abbott

Hi, we really enjoyed the reunion, thanks to all who organised every thing. Our granddaughter took many photos including a few of the tractor rides and surrounding country side, if anyone would like any, email me.
