Dear Fellow Forum Members. It is my sad duty to inform you that member "fch782c" - my younger brother Paul, unfortunately passed away on 28 August 2014 after a long illness. Paul frequently sent me links and photos to this local website, and it is only now that I've found the time to sit down and join up as a member. Better late than not at all.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Paul had a remarkable knack of turning up photos of Arnold that as a 1960's boy I could juuuust about recall.

I suppose my earliest memories of Arnold would be the old Front Street - pre Fine Fare/Asda etc when Dewey's grocers still occupied the site.

Also the cinema on Front Street (demolished late 1960's?), the old baths, police station and the original church that sat near to the junction of Calverton Rd/Surgeys Lane, the site now occupied by a community centre.

I can also recall the derelict remains of the Seven Stars as the St Mary's Close development was being built.

Ady, I'm so sorry to hear the sad news. I did enjoy reading your brother's posts which will always be here on Nottstalgia. My condolences go to you and the rest of Paul's family. I too grew up in Arnold by the way, and remember all those places you mention. I hope you continue to get involved with Nottstalgia, we look forward to hearing more from you.

Poor old Paul...sorry to hear.

Spent many an hour sinking a pint in the Eagle with him....I left the area a few years back and lost contact. I knew he had had a bad do health wise...it's the cards we draw in life I guess.

We never did get the metal detectors out Calverton way like we often talked. ;)

Although this has made me feel sad, it has also given me a lift.

It proves once again what a great site this is.

wouldn't it be good if the whole world was as thoughtful as the members on this Forum.

Just imagine Earthtalgia. com.......

Welcome AdyStimpson
