My First Memory of Hackney

Hackney Pirates


When I Moved To Hackney

I was 9 years old. I moved from Beckton near the Excel. 

I drove here with my mum, sister and brother. It was a 1hour drive.

I thought it looked crazy and crowded It smelled like smoke. 

My new house was dirty and awful but we cleaned it very well. 

My old house had a lot of space and my new house didn't have as much.

The first thing I did  was go to the cafe nearby.
