  1. my family moved on to Carter Lodge Avenue in 1968. My parents still live there,I went to Carter Lodge School until 1973.I can remember coming down the steep hill from Woodhouse many a time on our bikes, at one point there was a very small footbridge you had to go over how we always made it to the bottom in one piece
  2. I went to Ph school until 68 I used to live on Plowman St until it was demolished and we moved to Hackenthorpe

  7. i went to phillimore road infant and junior school in the early 60s and i remember our school song was Jerusalem which i am sure we all sang at least once a week at assembly. What a shame the primary schools nowadays dont have school songs
  8. my grandkids laughed when i told them about whit sunday and parading round all the neighbours in our new clothes. Maybe its because getting new clothes is a weekly thing to most kids now a days it doesnt have the same excitement.The salvation army band marched around the streets the girls always had a handbag to put the coppers in that neighbours gave them when they saw you dressed in your finary then the outing to one of the local parks.It was always a lovely hot day can still remember my dad and grandad in the park in there suits with ties done up they looked like cooked chickens by the end of the day but what a day great memories.
