    All electoral registers are held at the Nottinghamshire Archives (which I realise you may not be able to visit in person) https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/culture-leisure/archives I know because I've done quite a bit of digging around in there.

    Come on then what did Santa bring you for Crimbo ?

    Someone likes his truffles? I once trained my Jack Russell to sniff out truffles, Thornton's where not best pleased.

    I was under the impression that electoral registers are not publicly available after 1931, a search on Ancestry turned up the 1939 register, and a search on find my past turned up the 1931 voters list. Does anyone know for which years between 1931 & 1939 the voters lists are available and where they can be found? Thanks George

    The first mention of anything to do with Beechdale Road in the news archives , whether to do with people living there or construction etc. is 1936 . This fits in with your other dates .

    Looking again at my original sketch, I think I'd better stick to what I know and do best.

    First time I've seen this topic so I scrolled back and read some of the earlier posts. Despite the basic tenet of no politics there is an amazing assortment of comment back there and a very active M2M taking swipes at things like Tony Blairs net worth, immigration and Europe etc... A typical M2M comment form March 5 2014:- 'If you feel that Clagg, Cameroon or Millibland should be put in power next time, feel free to express your views. Freedom of speech and that's what I say.' There was no nastiness among the various posters, in fact they all appear to be singing from the same hymn sheet. How times change... So who decided 'no politics'?

    I suppose for some people shoplifting is a psychological aberration and has nothing to do with need.

    It's not easy to find a specific date for something like that unless you know someone who moved in when it was all new. The best bet might be to look at Electoral Registers, which will name people who were living at the relevant place on a particular date. Electoral Registers won't start until there's someone living there, so by a process of elimination you'll find the first one.

    I surprise myself sometimes Phil. I even venture into Lidl’s occasionally, in my endeavour to learn a foreign language.

    It was bound to happen ........ I’ve seen an individual, to me it looked like a young man, wearing lots of makeup, trying on dresses (over ‘his’ clothes) in Primark. I tried my best to ignore what I was seeing but it wasn’t easy!
  26. As I said previously I played in that team for a few games but don't remember John Haberla but somewhere have a photo with Yolande in it. She went out with one of my pals at Digby College . Lovely girl .

    Origin of School Badges:

    I went to Bilborough Grammar and after reading this thread looked the school badge online. It was (and I quote) the arms of William Peveril, first lord of the manor of Strelley and Bilborough combined with the book of learning and sword of justice! The school motto was Summa fire ac probitate (scholar of highest honour and integrity). The badge was designed by someone at Nottingham Castle Museum. Oower just about sums up the pretentious little twit who was headmaster during my time there, always felt he had delusions of grandeur, it was after all just a school on a council estate. One good thing from looking at this have found the address of a website for the school to have a look at, other than that my time there was mostly boring and at worst excruciating.
