In 2002, Minnie was outside in her garden when we were walking around the estate. So we stopped for a little chat and a cup of tea with her. She had been here since 1949. She told us her husband and her only paid £3 a week rent back in the 50s. 'I can't say anything bad about my prefab. We have been very happy here. We could get solid food out of the garden, there was a local shop and the milk- man still does his delivery. It has been 53years! There was a park for the children and I used to go dancing twice a week while my husband was going to the pub. Men went to the pub! ', Minnie remembers.
