29 Acacia Avenue - Pepper (Dinah Sheridan) waits at the tennis club for the Robinson’s son Peter (Jimmy Handley). Jules Ballantyne has suggested that this could be what is now Canons Park Activity Centre bearing in mind the amount of local filming. Unfortunately we have been unable to obtain a confirmation or denial from anyone associated with the present club. Perhaps someone knows the original groundsman or someone in the local planning office who could help us? (RL)
