With his father in the RAF and the house in Romford bombed out, Dennis was evacuated to Cambs. with his mother and younger brother. The sidebar picture shows Dennis, amongst others, in front of Cottenham Memorial on VE day. The family later moved to Cambridge, where Dennis became an apprentice bricklayer, and the eldest of five brothers. His National Service was completed in the Royal Engineers.
Dennis moved to Over with his wife and family more than 30 years ago. He built houses all over the county, including some in the village. He now makes the most of his retirement, surrounded by family and friends, and enjoying fishing, bowls, and other pastimes, but especially spending time with his young grandson.
