Juli Saunders' memory of the Great Storm is 'waking in the night listening to
the wind, oh my goodness! ... opening the living room window on the 2nd floor
to keep an eye on the shop hanging sign was very tricky. Eventually the
sign blew off and luckily did not smash the shop window but went into a doorway
a few houses up the street. While hanging out of the window to see where
it landed the wind took the curtain ... I came across it a few week later in
the gutter opposite the Scout Hut in East End Lane, I live in the High Street.
