  1. well yes i loved covering my school books with wallpaper,used to get some spare from my mamas as she was a little bit posh ,so had quality wallpaper,we also have lots of old utensils,but we bought them from pownalls shop on bath street,sold everything from a teaspoon to table and chairs
  2. was mick marriott susan marriotts brother,she lived in sneinton and went there from 1959 till 1963,i thought it was an all girls school
  3. hello lupo sorry to hear only 2 left from the stredders,well apart from the dad dick all the roses are still alive,the mother rosie rose is 92 and still going strong,still dyes her hair jet black as she has always had it,when she was young,it was young dick that my friend was married to,she still keeps in contact,then it was carol,john,david mick and the youngest nita,rosie lives in a flat and looks after herself,as you say yourself i think there was a few scallys in the roses and stredders,but not really bad
  4. what street did you live on in sneinton,we lived on colwick road and knew some friends who went to nsw as £10 pommies in the late 60s
  5. ooh sounds interesting is their a link to this
  6. oh gosh,ugh horrible my memories of chaucer street and leenside dentists,they were absolute nightmares,so many children sitting so frightened then having a black rubber mask held down on your face,as others have said then sitting at a sink continual rinsing and so much blood coming from our mouths,i know i had need for only small fillings but yank them out was the order of the day,worst was waking during the night at home as a blood clot was coming from my mouth,sorry for graphic details but thats the way it was,many many years before i had courage as an adult to visit a "proper "dentist,but realisticly times have changed and maybe they thought they were doing the right thing
  7. anyone remember Dave Betton a real crooner from 60s to the 80s often played in the manvers pub on colwick road when he first started out,but even the pub has gone,but hope dave is still around
  8. tug wilson was not a fatty,he was very tall and his weight suited his frame,then again when you see all the gear they carry on their uniform it is a wonder they can run at all,is it all essential
  9. oh i wish we had hedgehogs,no more slugs in the garden and all our plants would survive i do know you have to feed them dried cat or dog buiscuits to encourage them to come visiting,nothing fish flavoured,and then a nice little hideaway for them to hibernate when it gets really cold
  10. a friend of mine used to be married to one of the roses and i remember going back to their house on castle street when we had all been in the bendigo pub which was their local it was always party time in the roses house.the stredders lived on the same street if my memory serves me right.i spoke to her and told her only 2 of the stredder family alive.she used to see one of the brothers that lived in carlton and his wife had her own beauty buisness.well all the rose family apart from the dad(richard) are still alive even the mother she is now in her 90s and still going strong.there was 4 lads and 2 girls in the roses.but theirs was not a happy marriage.she says most of the roses are on second and even third marriages
  11. for sneck we would say put latch on,then again we really never locked the door because our radiogram was the size of a coffin,the tv weighed a ton of bricks,no one had gadgets----i pad mobile phones or spare cash lying around,therefore never heard of many robberies in our area especially muggings they were unheard of
  12. best toy of all a trolley as we called them,pram wheels from trickets,some old wood and nails and amazing at junior shool we could knock up our own trolley(billy cart) as some call them happy days
  13. i can remember pownalls on bath street,sold everything from pots and pans to any furniture you needed for the house,it was a regular trip to sneinton market saturdays and mondays,and if you had any cash left nip in to pownalls to try and pick up another bargain,formica table and chairs was one of their specialities
  14. shocking,i have just been reading this article in the evening post,be warned always make sure your relatives male sure you are safe in hospital,and they give you food and drink if necessary,who would have believed we would even be discussing this topic
  15. never had much time for the xylophone man,he just plinked plonked on his 99p toy,bit off a rip off to me but lots of people gave him cash,how he became famous to be talked about on radio nottingham,i will never know and then for a plaque to be put up crazy
