    Just thought I would visit the Bovingdon Bulletin Board to see what was happening in “my old village”. What a surprise to see that I’m mentioned as having lived in Hyde Meadow.
    Carol has reminded me of a lot of names from my past.
    I moved away from Bovingdon a long time ago & now live in Dorset. I occasionally return to Bovingdon & l’m amazed at how it has changed, “for the worst”.
    The fields I once played in as a child are now housing estates & the High Street seems to have become a car park. Perhaps that’s progress.
