  1. Hi

    I was born in Walthamstow and lived there until 1997, I am a big fan of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and perform in tribute bands, it would be absolutely brilliant to see the place where they performed restored to its former glory. If i can be of any assistance in your cause please do not hesitate to contact me.
