Also sorry drab about your pal,and as Jill says don't give up on the site,I've been on here three years now and have mentioned dozens of old school mates,even school photos, and very seldom have I had

#65   Pales into insignificance when you think about the squillions of former girlfriends he's mentioned!  

Not everyone who recognises that photo is going to be seeing it within a few days of it appearing on here. Sometimes a new member will add a comment to a photo several years after it has been posted.

Hi all! When I opened up the site I had a notification that there was a new 'note', but, I can't find any new contact/notification......help!

The photo looks a bit like my old primary school, Hogarth Junior on Carlton Road/Linnel Street. If so, it's now a Hindu temple. I went from Hogarth in about 1958-9 to Manvers Bilateral, I'm just wondering if Hogarth was called Manvers prior to the new Manvers being built in the early 50s on the old brickyard further up Carlton Road?

 

Cheers

Hi Drabmuloc

St Ann's board school was an infant and junior school. I went about 51/52 left 57/58 went on to Sycamore schools for girls.

Infant school head mistress was a Mrs Hayes and Junior school head master was a Mr Salt, the school was between Edwin St and Duncomb St. Your right the class rooms of the junior school did come off the hall, opposite the stage was a class room which was at mazzanine level this was the art room. At the front of the school which was on St Ann's Well road were stone steps each side of the entrance (very impressive) but in all the years I attended I never knew any one who had used the front entrance.

OMG! Cliff Ton's picture is definitely St Ann's Board School. I really must go on google earth, go back to.....er.....yesteryear, and check out the streets either side and then see if I can see the Cavendish pub next to Cavendish Street.........it's all coming back. There was a tri fronted grocery shop called Tetleys, their son Keith died quite young. There was a Bookies on Southampton Street run by Charlie Williams. I think my dad 'probably' paid his mortgage. And May1947 you are so right, I had forgot the front entrance. Keep the comments coming guys and gals!

Hi Mary1947! Just thought I would let you know.....treated myself to a set of Drakes Pride d-tec bowls this morning, had a roll up this afternoon (indoors obviously) and I surprised myself with their accuracy! Couple more roll ups and they will be ready for a league triples match on Wednesday afternoon.

Just lost my first best mate, and, thus, my ties with dear old Nottingham are slowly, but surely, ebbing away. I will continue to monitor this site, but, I really don't hold out much hope for any further revelations as no body has come back acknowledging the existence of any of my youthful haunts which included the YMCA Jaze and Jive, the Dolphin pub in North Church Street, the Palais de Dance, Horne Brothers on Long Row, the shooting club underneath the Castle........the list is endless!

Dear Jill, I will persevere, thanks for not picking up on my jaze.....er.....jazz error, and, he, Bengi, is only 25......such fond memories of that many years ago! Thanks for the sympathy, but, that's life! Took my brother, who lives in Pinxton, for lunch at the Countryman Pub on Sunday, and, if you've not been there I can well recommend it. Best wishes to all until my next post.......Drab!

Hi all! Well another three months have gone by and no new postings....shame. Just booked the South of France for three weeks in June/July so looking forward to that. Outdoor bowling season has just begun (not looking forward to changeable weather!) so I hope I am as successful this season outdoors as I was indoors just gone. Sit here in the back garden, sometimes sunny and warm and sometime cloudy and cold, but, a glorious green all around! Went to the theatre last night and watched the Northern Ballet perform their new ballet Casanova. If you get the opportunity....don't miss it.....if you are into ballet that is! Out to dinner tonight so must get on and prepare. Night all!

Hi Drabmuloc

hope you have a good time in France but don't you know that your not allowed any holidays during bowling season (just jokeing) not sure of your age but in June they have over 55s bowls week at Skegness and almost every bowler you know will be there, the their are two other events one in Aug and then in Sept.

Talking about the ballet tried very hard to get tickets for The Red Shoes had to go and see Nutcracker in stead was not brilliant but OK

Do you ever go to the Opera's if not I can recommend it, don't worry if they don't sing in English as  you have a TV screen so you can read what is being sung.

Good Luck for your Bowling season, who do you play for?

Answer when you can.

Hi Mary1947, ballet, opera, theatre in general, to include serious and light pieces including musicals. Spent many years visiting London theatres, living just 35 miles north of the capital, but now we go to Milton Keynes Theatre for two reasons - they have all the major performers there, and, it's only a twenty minute drive! Keep your eye's peeled for 'anything' by the Northern Ballet...we have never been disappointed! We are also very fortunate to have on the doorstep the Wavendon Theatre....a great musical experience! They have three or four concerts a week and we manage to get to around a dozen a year. I'm retired now and this gives me all the time in the world to enjoy everything in my own time.....golf, bowls, theatre, reading, gardening, site seeing, holidays, whatever! Don't travel too far to play bowls, bit like the golf, there are so many opportunities not too far from home. My biggest travel is to the south of France every year and that wonderful trip is not too far away. Just booked the tunnel and the hotels going down. We always stop at the same hotels and fortunately get the same rooms....so nothing disappoints! When we get down there we rent a villa about 35 miles inland from the coast and being perched on the side of a hill the views are wonderful. That's it for now.......got to buy my NowTV ticket for tomorrow's match!!!

Hi my name is John Snowden. I went to Manvers from 1965sih to 1969. My form teacher was Mr Cork. I also remember the trip to Interlaken Switzerland and have revisited twice in the past 15 years. Anyone have the strap off of Corky? I did, painful. He used to call it Tickle Toby. I also received the cane once. Im not a bad lad but used to talk and muck about abit. Mr Hollingsworth was the Headmaster and Mr Pearce the Deputy Head. Dr. Leightgeb used to try to teach us German but gave up after two years and we had extra maths lessons instead. My form was 1T2,to 5T2. CSE grade,In my final year we amalgamated with Pierrpont Girls school. That was good.........I remember Lance Wright who used to teach Geagraphy and Valerie Mumby who taught PE...Wow!!!

The Forest! Goose Fair, cycle racing and Ray Booty, learning to drive on the parking area at the far end. Parties at the house almost at the top corner at the cemetery end. The girls school opposite.....oh so many very happy memories. Coffee at the Bambo coffee bar, harder stuff at the Dolphin in North Church Street, jazz and jive at the YMCA, jive and 'other things' at the Palais de dance, the Beatles at the Odeon.........why did I leave?

 

The "Bamboo" was the first Coffee Bar I ever went to. Lots of good music and frothy coffee. The girlfriend at the time was so posh but gorgeous with long blonde hair and blue eyes. Her name was ..........  (Old age again)
