  1. Bit late to this, SG, but Happy Birthday anyway
  2. Nonna. I do hope your Mum will be OK. Take care
  3. We went to see Richard Thompson a couple of years ago - don't know why. SO boring that we left after about 30 mins
  4. RR, your answer to 19 gave me a laugh
  5. I have 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, No idea about the rest
  6. Little Richard has always been one of my great favourites. Good Golly Miss Molly for me is the best, followed closely by Lucille
  7. That sounds reassuring, Nonna - I do hope they'll stick to their promise
  8. I love that film too, Jill. We read Great Expectations for English Lit O Level, so we were all taken to see it, but I've watched it a number of times since. I'm not a great fan of Dickens but I love that book, my favourite line being about Bentley Drummle "he was so sulky a fellow that he even took up a book as though it's writer had done him an injury"
  9. Happy Birthday and what a lovely idea the tea party was
  10. Jonab - isn't the first word Enquete (don't know how to do the accent on a keyboard!) rather than Euguet? Not that it really matters!
  11. I'm so sorry to hear this Sue. Care home residents and staff have very sadly been neglected. Take care
  12. Yes, SG, Bilborough Grammar always had speech day at the Albert Hall. I remember they were always even more strict about school uniform for that occasion
  13. I'm so sorry to hear this and what lovely words you had to describe your Dad
  14. An article in the Nottingham Journal of 22/10/1941 about Scotland Place Schools, New Basford, says "Tribute was paid by the Lord Mayor to the headmistress, Miss J Boultby, who, he revealed, would be retiring shortly"
  15. Yes, Brew, I think most on here are in receipt of pension. There are those of us, though, who are self-employed, like my husband and I, who, whilst in our 60's, are without any pension or income and have to wait until at least June for any Govt support
  16. MD I'm so sorry to hear this and hope you'll soon be together again
  17. What a lovely photo and big congratulations to you both
  18. He was Edward Hurst, always known as Ted. He and his very big and very poor family lived in Elson Terrace, off Elson Street. He had a sister, Margaret, who was a bit closer to your Mum in age (she was born in 1924), but I don't know if she went to Berridge
  19. Very interesting, Jill! I assume Berridge Infants was mixed? If so Miss Wheat would have been Headmistress at the time my Dad was at the school (he was born in 1922) Found a death for Elizabeth Maud (sic) Foden with a matching birthdate. She lived in Ulverston and died on 3/2/1991 ( GRO Deaths Index and National Probate Calendar)
  20. A Death notice for someone with the surname Plenderleith in the Nottingham Evening Post for 1931 mentions a Rosa Villa, Station Road, Gedling
  21. There's a marriage for a Johnathan Eyre to Sarah Ann Fish in Nottingham in 1902. Your mothers Birth index entry shows her mothers maiden name to be Fish. In the 1911 census, Sarah Anns birthplace is given as Cromer. In 1911 they are living at 7 Hope Street and Johnathan is a Coal Miner. On the 1891 census, Johnathan is living with his parents (father is Robert) at 2 Hope Street. Robert's occupation is Collier.
