      Hi David. I'm sorry to hear about Michael, I remember him well when I lived down Brand Street so it makes me sad to hear that. I can remember him and Catherine talking about an older brother in the navy. Seems a long time ago now which it is but good memories stay in the mind forever. Thank you for letting me know.

      Hi Phillip

      Michael had a good life he had two sons  and lots of Grandchildren he had worked in the building trade throughout his life He is sadly missed by all. I have lots of happy memories of where we lived and of the friends I had. Lost touch with most of them while I was away in the Navy. I returned to Nottingham in the 70s I lived and worked out at Whatton before moving on again. I enjoy Nottstalgia because it sometimes throws up names I know and remember which in turn brings the memories flooding back.

      Hi David. Yes I know what you mean, I guess we all love to go back to our younger days and rootes. Occasionally I have gone back to the streets and although the houses are long gone the streets are still there along with a few of the buildings. when I look along I can see all those friends running playing and kicking a ball against the wall.


      Some more I remember which may ring a bell. The Cumperpatches from Holme Street, Terry Murden, David and Graham Love from Grainger Street, Maureen and Snadra Swinn from Grainger Street, Billy and Kenny Watts from Home Street, Dennis Pike ( he had an older brother carnt remember his name ) Brian Miles and a whole lot more it goes on.


      Simple days but great ones no one had much money but it was always fun playing out and running around those streets. Never to be forgotten as ive said.
