  1. I'm glad someone else remembers Miss Parsons she used to inspect your hands before cookery she was an ogre.I was at the girl's school but can't remember Players boys.
  2. I remember school dinners yes I loved them even though my mam was a good cook.I attended Players secondary school and the puddings especially caramel tart and treacle tart YUMMY.
  3. Does anyone remember a cookery teacher at Players secondary in the early 1960s her name was Miss Parsons, she used to be so strict frightened the life out of me.But she taught me how to cook,I can still remember her dark permed hair glasses sitting at lunchtime eating her sandwiches with a knife and fork.!!

    Ah Locarno dancing round your handbags good times eh.I met my husband there he and his mate heard there were lots of girls in Nottingham and pretty of course he was right !!.They came from Coventry so one dance led to another....I moved to Coventry when we married and the rest is history we now live in beautiful Devon.We have been bac k to Nottingham once or twice but never the same.
  10. When we saw an ambulance we would say Touch your collar touch your nose hope we dont go in one of those,still stay it now but quietly.Still cant walk under a ladder or cross someone on the stairs without pretending to spit. Does anyone remember Colwick cheese it was delicious.I think they sold it in the old market and what about real mushy peas not the tinned type.One more item,someone mentioned Liquafruta for coughs it tasted like weedkiller smells vile stuff.One more horlicks in tablet form.

    Hello again just to reply to someone's questions, I lived on Lindfield Rd The better part as my mam used to say Lol .I saw the article on Drewry and Edwards and it brought back memories I was an overlocker there and I remember the supervisor cant recall her name We used to call her Dobbin she used to terrify us and we had a young handsome mechanic who all the girls fancied.Some lunchtimes a group of us would go down the Locarno fabulous.In the early sixties you could walk out of one job and straight into another ah happy days.
