When the Aspen Tree, Gobions Avenue, Havering Road opened in July, 1955, Mr A E Bone became the licensee. He moved there with his wife and two daughters from the Castle at Stratford after 12 years as its tenant.

Mr Bone must be one of the very few licensees who can claim to have been a Member of the Pharmaceutical Society. He dispensed medicines until 1943 when he decided that he preferred to dispense products which have more than healing qualities.
As a young man, Mr Bone was an accomplished batsman and played a lot of cricket, an occasion with the Essex Club and Ground XI. He played regularly for Highams park and knows Trumans Sports Ground well. Today, his hobbies are motor cars and reading history.
Although the Aspen Tree is a relatively new house, Mr and Mrs Bone have created a family atmosphere. Their daughters are both married but often help behind the bars at weekends.
The Shove Ha'penny team at the house are unbeaten at the time of writing; the star player is Charlie Ramsey, brother of Alf Ramsey, the England International Football Team Manager.
Mr Bone is President of the Romford Drum and Trumpet Corps, a famous local band.
