Due to the excellent work done by local historians generally, very little of this is original but I needed to reproduce some of their material to put the story into context. The game of hockey also gets the occasional foot-note. It cannot be judged as a religion but it was important to us in those days. We certainly wondered if our coach spoke to God. I still return to Margate regularly and regard it with deep affection. For many years it was in danger of becoming a wasteland. There are those now, some famous, some often unsung, who are trying to fashion a resurgence. Another form of true love. May their guardian angels help them succeed.
