To give a flavour of what life was like in Grange Park in the 1940s, one of our visitors, Harold Tokins, wrote:

Grange Park School Air Raid Shelters. I must have spent half my school days down those shelters in the early 1940's. Damp & Dark. No Lights. Teachers at each end and because it was dark it was always Spelling Bees. If it was a long Air Raid there would be Orange Juice and a Biscuit handed down the shelter. Then at dinner time one was not allowed to go home for dinner with a raid on unless a parent or adult came to collect you. If raid still on after lunch you did not bother to go back.

Hayes had over 2,000 bombs dropped on it during the course of the war. 3 DoodleBugs in one week. 1 in my back garden at Hurstfield Cres. (Mother killed & no Home) Another at EMI & Speedway Cafe, Dawley Road and another in Cherry Lane. I Remember Bombs top of Park Lane/Uxbridge Road. Some in Botwell Lane.
