    I was born in '56 and went to Bluebell hill school. Lived at 12 Alfred Street South (the back yard was on Gordon Road) near a corner shop as I remember. I used to play in Stewarts Place (nice tree lined area I recall) and I seem to remember a "Mrs Coffee" in factit might have been next door. Moved in '62 to a house on Bluebell Hill road near the junction of St. Bartholomews Rd (Donkey Hill).In fact both my brother and myself lived on Donkey Hill but at different times in different houses.
  4. Yes my Dad worked in the office there. When my mum took me shopping in the Co-op we would shout to Him and He looked out of the window and waved to us. Magic time as I didn't see a lot of Him due to the shifts he worked.At weekends worked with his brother for Jacklin (?) removals..
  5. Still there, went past it the other day. Corner of Thomas Close
  6. Sorry you've got the wrong place. It was at the top of the escalaters opposite Whimpey's Yes it was a furniture shop
