AYUP - Notts Lad here. A potted history follows.........

Born in Derby General Hospital in June 1953 - very nearly with a silver spoon in my mouth ( just missed the Coronation!) have spent the rest of my life just missing things too!

Lived in Long Eaton for the first year of my life

Parents bought a house in the Meadows ( Pyatt St) so moved there next and went to Collygate Infants and Trent Bridge Juniors.

At the age of 10 I had to transfer schools when my parents bought a bungalow in Carltion ( Douglas Avenue) Went to Parkdale primary which I loved and passed my 11+ there

Next went to Carlton Le Willows Grammar ( which I hated) and did a 7 year stretch.

In Sept 1971 I left Carlton and Nottingham to start a 3/4 year Teacher Training course and basically never really moved back except for the big hols.

Still living near Manchester after all these years.

Still have family in Nottingham and Notts so do pop back now and again...

Enuff said!
