    Bye all

    Well I am popular aren't i?. For your information all you busy bodies i have contributed, i posted that i was ill for several months, i am not bothering going to look for the post. If this is the kind of welcome back i can expect I'm better off leaving. Your like a load of old women nattering over the garden fence, and i have got better things to with my life than be a member of a (I did want to use a stronger word here) forum like this. Well i'm leaving now, and the reason i haven't contributed more is for the reason i stated above. Goodbye.
  4. Started Work at Moorgreen Pit at easter 1969, my first wage was £6.6shillings a week. 16 weeks training then i went to Babbinton colliery. I have had a few jobs over the years but i always went back to the pit untill they shut. About 25 years in all, and i miss my old mates, and iften dream about the Pit.
  5. I have lived in Newbury Berkshire for just over 5 years. I married a Newbury Gal which i met on the internet. I have always had the wanderlust, and when we got offered this Flat in Newbury I, and the Mrs jumped at the chance. I couldn't wait to get out of Nottingham, it's not the same city i grew up in. I lived in Bulwell when we moved, and i was sick of all the Chavs hanging about on the streets.
  6. Correct me if i'm wrong but didn't it Show "Albert Finney" running down "Derby Road" after a bus?.

  13. Paulus i knew all of the families you mentioned. I lived just round the corner from the Pritchetts, in fact Paul was a good mate of mine born on the same, and same year. I went to school with the Whitby's. I knew the Wilkinsons they used to live on Woodfield Rd, Barry Wilkinson was a mate of my eldest brother Pete. I use to live on Frinton at 171 opposite the Wilsons. I have the same surname of Wilkinson hence the "W". Small world innit. . Bomber Wells was a good mate of mine too.
