Hi, I seem to recall that the guy who lived across the road was an apprentice plumber. Is that you? Trish and Joan Barks lived on the other side of you and Lesley Camm lived next door to them.

Welcome Kathleen.

 

It's always interesting to see if there's any reaction when someone replies to old posts. Radford Boy"s was made nearly 7 years ago but he still looks at the site frequently so hopefully you'll get a reply. DaveK hasn't been here for a few months so you might not be so lucky.

Hi John Dudley.

You are correct. I am indeed the Les Newberry who emigrated to Australia in 1964.

I married an Australian girl and have three children and now five grandchildren.

Prior to retiring in 2012 I was the product manager for Australia and New Zealand for a range of Samsung products.

I was back in the UK only four months ago catching up with my cousin, Paul Brooks.

Paul used to live at 82 Southfield Road, right next to the gates to the playing field.

I remember Lindsey Dale who lived there..think she had a brother who's name was also Lindsey but spelt differently maybe Lynsey or could have been the other way round.

Tims wife was called Lindsay, which could have been confusing. Lindsay Cohen from Aspley.

Hi Pete C.

Are you Pete the Plumber?

I think a family called the Barks used to live on the other side of you. They had two daughters, Patricia and Joan. Any one know what became of them?

I was across the road at number 44.

Hi Pete C. Sorry, the memories starting to fade a bit. (The joys of getting old). We left in December 1964. I do remember Pat Crowley, Paul Scales, Russel Palethorpe, Nigel Wagstaff,

Sandra Talbot, Chris Morley, The Blatherwickes, and John Dudley. I have photos somewhere of most of these people. Must see if I can find them.

Hi Jackson,

A girl that lived opposite me on Vale Crescent South worked at the library in the 60s. Her name was Joan Barks.

Wondering if you knew her and where she is now.
