This website is a living history of the John Lewis Partnership. Through the site, people share their memories, photos, maps and information about the John Lewis Partnership, past and present.
My brother Godfrey is in the middle of the front row looking curiously to the left and my sister Nina is the fairy right at the top of the picture. Both were evacuees from London, with my parents Alwin and Rene. They all lived first in Bridge House, now the Dower House.
In 2017 the 2 year old being held in the left of this image revisited Odney as a special treat for his 80th birthday. He was most surprised to see that his photo had been included in an exhibition about the Odney Club and even more surprised when we told him that we knew this and that a lunch table was waiting for him in the club as a special ‘VIP’ visitor.
Thank you for your comment, I have updated the page with the correct spelling and checked for further errors but as the link is automatically generated, I am sorry to be unable to rectify this. Our Memory Store sites are run by a very small team of Partners and volunteers and unfortunately mistakes are sometimes missed until they are pointed out to us, so thank you for this.
