I lost contact with most of them when we all left school, the only one and I can't think of his name now, that I had contact with for several years after school, was one of my classmates who served his apprenticeship with the NCB at the same time as myself...

I was born on Trevitt Street off abbotsford street in 1946

i went to Sycamore infants, Elm avenue junior and then on to Manvers senior before moving to Netherfield when I was 12

We had Scotts the grocers on the corner of our street, Ethel's paper shop and Gilberts chemists on the other end of the street.

my aunt and uncle had a grocers just down Dame Agnes street and my cousin Terry Penn delivered the milk.

i can remember the shipstones horses and scarcity of cars, playing in the street was normal and just down the road was a nice park at the bottom of sycamore road.

my dad had an allotment at hunger hills and I used to go with him a lot.

we did not have a lot but for me and my sister Sylvia times were good and I look back with fondness and happy memories.
