    I enjoy Notts County although I have not seen them for a long time and I am an active fund raiser for many charities. I support youngsters and give talks to many groups on the history of the Post Office.
    In the New Years Honours List in 2010 I was awarded an MBE

  3. The houses at Trent Bridge Secondary Modern Boys was: Bosworth Lake Laws Pearson They were named after old boys killed in the first world war and they died in the school when it was being used as a hospital. Each house had a big framed photograph of them over the house name in the hall. I have often wondered what became of those photos when the school closed. Best wishes Peter

  9. As a long suffering County man it upsets me to see them in such a state as at the moment there does not seem to be any light at the end pf the tunnel in fact they seem to be struggling to even find the tunnel. I used to travel all over the county with them and walk round the pitch in my top hat etc. My nickname in those days was Prof. They were always a hard team to beat at home. I remember in the very old 2nd division we struggled for years we would say things like "If we win today by 2 - 0 and Lincoln City lose we go above them on goal difference" I used to stand in the Kids Pen" Lets hope this new consortium puts them back in better shape Best wishes Peter

  13. I lived at 100 Kirkewhite Street and we had a TV - one of the few who had in those days. The power came from an attachment in the light socket but we did had one 2 pin power point in the room but did not know if it worked or not. Chap from next door was in every night watching the TV and said he would tell us if the socket was live or not. He put a steel knitting needle in one of the holes and wet his finger - I am sure you all know what is coming next - he switched it on and boy o boy did he do a little dance and screaming TURN IT OFF - Where shall I switch it off my Mam asked - FOR GODSAKE ANYWHERE his hair all stood up on end. At least we were then able to use the socket Best wishes Peter
  14. Yes Manvers was for boys and Pierepoint the girls. I was at Manvers for a short time in the 50s before moving to Trent Bridge and I lived on Handel Street and Ashley Street and walked to school. Best wishes Peter
  15. I remember a shop on corner of Cambridge Street who had some sort of contraption on the counter to make children's drinks for next to nothing - stuff tasted vile though!!! A house, a couple of doors up, did children's haircuts on a Saturday if they had a bowl the right size!!! Best wishes Peter
