Can anyone tell me if this is the same as Warden Bay Caravan park? I used to go to one or the other c1956-8 in a caravan owned by Fred Church. I remember a clubhouse where Eddie Calvert music was being played and cliffs weren't far away. Thanks john fletcher

hiya Jean sorry i got name wrong i thought it was hedges not edge the surname, just that as i said my nan and granddad worked for them on the site, (Marge & Henry Gardner)in the 60's, they lived in the little flat next to the blue lagoon too during the season. Eventualy brought property and lived in leysdown until 72/73. Great days

My nan and granddad ( Henry & Marge Gardner worked/managed the club house for i think Les Hedges during the 60's, they lived in the flat next to the Blue Lagoon, then brought property a bungalow in leicester gardens then house up on the cliffs called Glengary, which i believe was demolished years ago now for new builds. My aunt and uncle peggy and Ron owned the fish stall at the entrance to warden bay.

I"ve seen this picture on here before and didn't realise that it was a photo of my uncle Charlie untill I read the comment from my cousin Jean. This photo would have been about 1960 and is the main entrance to the camp; i have many happy memories as my father and uncle owned and built the camp from scratch; Not bad eh!

hello its nice to see your site the picture of warden bay holiday camp shocked me as the man in the picture is my father Charlie Elliott he built the first chalet on the camp which belonged to my uncles Les and Bill Edge which was my mothers brothers.I lived there from the age of two and went to school at Eastchurch through the summer i would like to know if any one remembers my mum and dad they worked on the camp for about 13 years we know so many people and would like to speak to some of them if they remember us

thanks again for so many good memorys if you have more pictures of my dad or of my mother and uncles i would love to see them it was in the 50s and 60s
