Hi Babs, I can remember Gary, June Thorpe's son but I can't remember any of her other children. You say you went to live on Deabill st, my cousin lived at 40 his name was George Ruff, he lived there all his life. Can you remember June Smith, I'm sure she married one of the Bates lads and I think they were going to live in Australia. I remember Mary Garner, she lived at the last house on Forester st. she was in my class and Geogina Glover , her dad had the butchers shop. I can remember the name Ray Clements but not his face. It was'nt me who organised the reunion it must have been Joyce Ibbotson, she did things like that, and yes Ann was Jean Lawtons younger sister, and we still see each other .

George's wife Glenis had a sister and she married Ron Tansley, I can't remember her name though. Can you remember Pat Merritt she lived at 42 Deabill st, I went to school with her and Irene Bush, do you remember her.,there was the Wraggs who lived down Hodgkinson st, what about the Swinscoes do you remember them, there was Colin, Dave, Maureen, Ida and a couple more who I can't think of. I'm still in touch with Ida , we phone each other and when I'm in Netherfield I nip in to see her, and Ann Lawton. I used to see Ron Tansley in his teddy boy suit walking down Victoria rd there was usually somebody with him, it must have been your Ray.

Hi Sheila. Name's Dave Higton. Grew up on Hodgkinson street. Few doors up from the Tansleys. Ron Tansley was probably at least ten years older than me.

Babs,

I lived on Hardy's Drive Gedling until 1959 and there was a family with the surname Wragg, who lived on the corner of Main Road and Hardy's Drive. Could this be the same family, as the name Sandra Wragg seems familiar to me? Could be some connection as it is a fairly unusual Surname.

There are Comery's in my Family, going way back. I have traced them to Thurgaton in early 1800s and then Carlton to present day. They were all over Carlton and Sneinton throughout the 18 and 1900s, but the name I am connected to is spelt Comery with one M.

Seem to remember there was a place called Wraggs organ builders on the Nottingham side of Carlton hill. Possibly on the end of Porchester road? They were the days when churches still had pipe organs rather than electronic. Wonder if they were relatives of the Nettherfield Wraggs?

Batesy #40,

I dare say Dawn is some distant relation to me, but there are so many branches in my family tree, she is probably very distant. I don't remember the name Dawn at all. But a Comery surname from Carlton is a possible link.

Hi Babs, I lived on Arthur st about 6 houses from the cinder path. Peter Burrows lived next but one to us and across the street was Dorothy Pritchett. At the top of the street was Otters shop, and if Mrs Otter was serving I didn't like going in for a newspaper cos I was frightened of her . I was at Ida and George's wedding at St.Georges church, she now lives down Colwick.

We moved to Bailey st when I was 11, used to play on the rec at the bottom of Forester st, a gang of us used to go on the Cricket field and jump the concrete blocks under the bridge. When I think back to what we all used to do , but we couldn't see any danger then.

Just been looking at Pictures of the Past. I've spotted one of Netherfield Rovers football club and found my dad, Jack Bell, he also played for their cricket team. From right to left my dad is standing next to the goalie. Arthur Ibbotson is standing behind him and his son Alan is holding the cup.Frank Welbourne is far left on his son Gordon is holding the ball. I can see Freddie Seston on the left and I know the name R Salvin .Can anyone else remember this photo?.

Sheila, I lived on Bailey St in the 50s, No. 8, I remember the Coffees, Jennifer May, Nigel and Judith Peck, Marylin and June Commery, David and Morris Flint, Derek Crisp, Geoffrey and Grenville Mawer., Played on the old rec, jumped the slabs, swinging over the lines in Colwick woods.

I'm guessing and hoping this is the one you're referring to. http://www.picturethepast.org.uk/frontend.php?action=printdetails&keywords=Ref_No_increment;EQUALS;NCCC002523&prevUrl=

Hello beach bum, what's your name? I can remember the Pecks, Morris Flint, Derek Crisp lived next door to me at No 5, I lived at No 3 . Can you remember Derek and Barbara Shaw and Alan Mehew. I can remember playing up Colwick woods and swinging over the railway lines. Did you ever put a half penny on the railway line near the bridge on the Cricket field , wait for the train to come and make it into a penny.. I did .
