    • Paper clipping dated by hand April 1944 Notes of the Week Link With the Past. Mrs Culbertson, of Avena, Albert-road, St Mary Cray, who is leaving for another district, was a pioneer of social and welfare work in the Orpington area over 50 years ago. Her late husband, Mr. John Culbertson, was for 40 years Vicar's warden at All Saints', Orpington, and on his retirement in 1932 Dr. Linton Smith, then Bishop of Rochester, presented him with an illuminated address and a garden shelter on behalf of the parishioners. Orpington and District Nursing Association was founded by Mrs. Culbertson in 1891. Dr. Tennyson Smith has placed on record his appreciation of the association's work and the wonderful organising abilities of Mrs. Culbertson, who was always ready to help poor people in distress. Avena was the residence of a Vicar of St. Mary Cray over 70 years ago; another resident was the late Judge Wheeler. Mrs. Culbertson has lived there for 61 years.
    • Paper clipping - dated by hand April 1944 Leaving Orpington To the Editor Dear Sir, Will you kindly give me space in your paper for a few words of farewell to friends in Orpington as I am giving up my home at Avena, Albert-road, Orpington, next month, to my great sorrow. After 60 years of happiness there, it is a spot full of precious memories to me. Always I have received such courtesy and kindness from everyone, giving me much pleasure and help in my life. I am quite unable to visit all my friends, and I therefore ask them to accept from me, in these few words, greetings and thanks to one and all, and my most sincere wish for their happiness and peace in the future years. Yours faithfully, Florence Culbertson Red Hill House, Red-hill, Chislehurst.
