Memory Lane is back in the Recorder following requests from our readers who missed the column and also the memories from our Days of the Old School Yard feature, which ran for 12 years from the late 1990s.
So we have decided to merge the two in a feature that will appear weekly, monthly, or occasionally, depending on you, our dear readers! It will appear both in paper and online at www.newhamrecorder.co.uk
