Hello Irene. I noticed that you lived at 247 Kingsway Park. I was born at 243 in 1954. I am the youngest of 4 sisters. Sandra - Jean - Lynn - Gillian. I have often listeded to conversations about times gone by from my family and the name Gregson was often brought up. My mum Amy is now almost 91 and she remembers living near your family.
