Priestfield Road by Roger Taber (Member 10037306) on 27-Aug-2016
I was born at 91 Priestfield Road on December 21,1945 and lived there until my family moved to Hoo in 1959. I continued to attend Gillingham Technical School (in Green Street then) but travelling to and fro on a number 19 or 65 bus was a nightmare as there was only one bridge across the Medway in those days, and there was awful traffic jams between Chatham and Stood. I would love to hear from any childhood friends.

Great Sandwich Bar In Strood by Derek Hallewell (Member 10248895) on 9-Dec-2010
There is a great new Sandwich Bar called Franz'n'Janz opposite Spike Lee's. I went in there today and the sandwiches were lovely. They also sell pies, jacket potatoes, cakes and the usual crisps,chocolate and hot and cold drinks. A breath of fresh air for Strood to have a quality food place. Recommended :-))

Why not make a new resolution to change your life in 2009. I am looking for people who have experience in the Financial Services, Utilities or Sales Industries.

Looking for Gina by Bill Gibbons (Member 10233704) on 1-Dec-2008
Hello All,

I lived in Priestfield Road, Gillingham from 1987 to 1994. Before I emigrated to Canada, I rented out the house to Gina Johnson (or Johnstone), a divorced mother with a couple of kids. I lost touch with Gina after the move but would like to find her again. She was then in her 30's, very attractive with short black hair, curvy and had a sort of Mediterranean look about her.

If any... more >>
