Hi From an Old St Annian and Bilboroughite

Recommended Posts

Born and bred in St Anns and very passionate of my heritage. Although we moved from the area, my Great Aunt lived there right up until demolition. Then moved to council houses in Aspley and finally Bilborough. Last one on Hanslope Crescent. Looking forward in being part of this nostalgic forom.

Hi I was born at 28 Pym Street as was my mother Marjorie and my sister Gillian. It was the home of my Great Aunt, Florence Williams (on my mothers side). She was the 'Ladies Waiting Room Attendant' at the Nottingham Vic Station. She was an exceptional person to me and was my mentor. She lived in the house right up until demolition and then she was rehoused in a one bedroom council flat in Bilborough which she hated.

Although we moved to Aspley and Bilborough, I was still visiting Aunty Flo right up until she moved and I was in my late teens and she too came to us. I loved the St Anns then, the shops, the people places like the 'Cavvo' it was just a lovely place to be.

Hi Thefrog

Welcome to Nottstalgia I to was born and bred in St Ann's I am sure we have lots of memories to share.

Hi thank you for the welcome. I was born at 28 Pym Street opposite Moffat Street in 1948. Me Mam Marjorie and my sister Gillian were also born in the house which was the home of my mother's aunt Florence Williams. My father was born at 16 Simpkin Street and my Grandfather lived in that house right up until he died in the forties.

I loved St Anns. I have very fond memories and I am passionate about my heritage. Very, very happy days.

Hi Frog

Small world my husband's grandma lived on Monk St which used to be near Pym St (I think) but I'm talking of the year 1929. If your mum or any of your family can remember the Haywood's or Dawn's.

Then we are nearly neighbour's.
