  1. Hi Geoff , Looks like we were there at the same time as per my original post . I knocked about with Dave Padgett for a while out of work and we went out as a foursome me with Rosie's mate. Dave had a grey mini and his mum and dad had a shop in Basford. I don't recall you though Geoff so we might have just missed working together. I also played football for them in The Thursday League . What is your surname Geoff.

  10. I think her surname is Peake and she still lives in Strelley Village just down from me. The cottage she lives in was her father's and it came with the job at the hall. Now when I lived on Yatesbury Crescent my next door neighbours on one side both worked at Players and the lady then in later years went on to be the head cook at Glaisdale School and Sue was her assistant . I know Sue still lives in the cottage but not seen her for a few years because she is housebound now and has carers come on a daily basis. Not sure if she had a sister.
  11. My dad worked at Friargate Station in the ticket office .
  12. Notts County Council started back in 1889 at The Shire Hall in High Pavement after centuries of administration by the magistrates at Quarter Sessions which dated back to feudal times.
