My wife went to Cavo and her two brothers, she knows several of the surnames you mentioned there Batesy. She is only 64 now but her elder brother is 67 so he would have been there when you were, his name is Colin Harrison.

My wife's friends were the Ingams (Jeff and Cathy) and the Sharps (Bella and Kathleen) and also the Weldons (Val,Kevin and Michael) but they may be younger.

I remember one of Colin's mates was Johnny Bird. Another was Dave Ford.

Col lived on Foxhill when he first married and was there a fair while, then to Burton Joyce but he now lives on Burton Pastures.

I always stay with him and his wife when I return , its really handy for visiting my relatives around nottm. They stay with us or my kids when they come here, or his younger brother Roy just north of Sydney.

I try to get back to blighty every 2-3 years so am due a trip now. Mmnnn! food for thought.

Been reading a lot of the different topics on nottstalgia to get a flavour of how it all works,and isn't it amazing how you only have to here a surname,a place,name of a street,it can literally be anything and suddenly it triggers the old memory bank into action,just read a piece on another thread mentioning canarvon grove,and it triggered memories of my first proper bike,took it for a spin with my mate Bill Willerton on his(we would both be about ten years old) ,cycling from the top of conno all the way down cavvo,we were approaching Canarven grove at a fair rate of knotts,turning right into canarven I miss judged it,mounted the pavement went round a lamp post and finished up in the hedge bottom,....lots of your memories just need that little trigger

Thanks for that piggy and babs,don't suppose the old Trent buses run any more do they,I know one used to run through to Burton Joyce,and was it gunthorpe and loudham there was one or the same.we used to call it gunthorpe and toilets,because the road sign saying gunthope,also said toilets on it.

Not a Trent bus, but there is a Pathfinder 100 service which runs between Nottingham and Southwell, taking in Lowdham and Burton Joyce on the way.
