A fascinating insight about the way of life, and it’s problems, for the first residents of the newly built Whitleigh.
Kindly sent to me by his Son Eric Pearn. Here is what Eric said….
We were among the first families to be relocated to the estate back in 1950 and my father, Ernest Pearn, served in and was one of the founding members of the Whitleigh Community Association. Later in his life, (he is now deceased), he took some time to collate and print a small booklet entitled, “Whitleigh, The Troublesome, Formative Years”.
