Recently, I went to revisit Valentines Park, Ilford. This was where my daughter Molly grew up and where we spent many hours- pushing her round in her push-chair; teaching her to ride her bike; feeding the birds on the lake. Then later, pushing my aged mother round in her wheel-chair; feeding the birds on the lake.....taking her close to her favourite Oak trees so that she could touch and gain strength from them.
Ilford was not a romantic part of London but in this park there was always something beautiful- and here it was, blooming.
