Hello to Iris again
I remember Kelly well in Leysdown. I remember my dad had cooked himself a huge breakfast one morning but then Kelly came into the arcade and my dad gave Kelly the breakfast. Kelly didn't always look as he looks in the above photo!

Hello to Iris Adams
I don't remember you, sadly ... by then I had moved away up to London to marry and start my family but George Parlane was my dad. And Wellworth Arcade was my home until January 1966 when I returned most weekends. Just found this website ... my daughter found it first when I was telling her of family history. Thanks for your piece.
Kind Regards
Linda (Parlane) now McMillan

I remember this Carnival day this photo of Kelly was taken im almost sure it was 1967 ,they dressed him up as The Mayor of Leysdown for the Carnival ,i worked in a shop called The Wellworth Arcade which later became Stage 3 building ,this was such a fun day Kelly looked so smart ,lots of us who worked in Leysdown at that time dressed up for the Carnival as Flower People when Flower Power was all the rage ,most of us were still at School but worked all the weekends and all through the Summer Holidays ,the Goverment have stopped Children working now ,but when i was young it was still acceptable and i started work up there when i was 11 years old and worked all over Leysdown every weekend and all the holidays untill i was 15 when i left School ,with a lot of us Kids working we all had fun times kept us off the streets ,and earnt money ,Everyone that worked in Leysdown at that time knew one another ,it was Great !!!

Thanks to Trevor for the great photos, and to everyone who has posted so many interesting stories of Leysdown.

I played the drums at Priory Hill for a few years in the early 1960,s. The band was:- Bob Gilbey-piano. Dave Stone-saxophone & vocals. Steve Barney-bass. Me (Reg) on drums and George Hobbs was MC. My wife ran a hot dog stand in a corner of the main hall, before it was refurbished.

I think that Dave & Doris Williams ran Wing Camp in those days, later becoming managers of the main camp. Doris is still around, her grandson owns the Royal Hotel in Sheerness, and she lives opposite the Royal.

I seem to remember
