The GHRA recently received the following from a TV producer looking for help. If you can help please contact us and we will pass on any information.
I work for a television company called Transparent TV. We are currently making a documentary about the history of social housing for Channel 5 presented by Michael Portillo.
> I would be incredibly grateful if you could help please. I am trying to track down former residents of Willey Court on the Galley Hill Estate. They were called the King family, they were photographed with Margaret Thatcher as they were some of the first people to go for the Right to Buy scheme. I am attaching a picture.
> Apparently they have moved on from Willey Court. But to track them down it would be really helpful to know their first names. Might you be able to help with this please? Is there an old register? Or a long- time resident who has been living at Willey Court since 1979?
> Here is an article that refers to the family:
