Grove Housing Association was formed in 1977 and to commemorate this the Association has produced a booklet titled “Our First Forty Years”.
Grove’s Chairperson, Mr Philip Oliver, says in the foreword: “I am delighted to present this special publication which charts the history, progress and achievements of this organisation through the decades. I trust that for those new to the area, this publication will help illustrate what conditions were like in Grove in the early years when three quarters of households lacked something as simple as a shower or a wash hand basin. Equally, I hope that it will also provide a welcome trip down memory lane for our more established residents who have known this area since early childhood.”
The booklet may be downloaded here, or a printed copy may be requested by contacting Grove’s office.
