  1. There were five of us, me, Roger, Paul, Dave Smith and Barry Falcon. We all played for the same football team, holidays, 67/68 we went in a caravan in Yarmouth, 69/70 we went to Jersey, during the summer, after work we were in the Park footballing, also Sunday afternoon, I had a portable record player, when it got too hot I,d play records, we usually went to town on Saturday night. My cousin did a disco, two nights at the Fleur De Leys, Totley, two nights at the Olive Grove, East Bank Road, we had some great times. In 1971 we had an argument and I went my own way, pity but great memories.
  2. Hi Linda, I did walk you home one night, you phoned me at work, T C Harrison and invited me to an all nighter, I couldn,t go, that was the last time I saw you. If I remember right both you and Shirley had black hair and wore leather coats. I last saw Paul around 1995, he still lives at Woodseat s and is in the phone book, I keep promising to go over and see him
  3. Hi, yes my name is Roger, we used to spend all our time in the Park playing football, Roger Buckey was my best mate. The only friend of Shirley,s I knew was called Linda C. There was a gang of younger girls used to follow us about, Carol Cox was one of them.
  4. My brother, Christopher Billam worked there for a few years.
  5. I used to work at Kennings, Sheffield Road, Chesterfield, Tom and his wife used to bring their car for servicing. We used to call at their pub for a drink, lovely couple, always had a chat, brilliant pint in a proper pub, great memories of great people.

  9. Does anyone remember Keith? I worked with Keith at T. C. Harrison, nice guy, I have been told that he has passed away, very sad, I have nothing but good memories, I believe he was related to Albert Quixall.
  10. I lived in Olivet Road, Woodseats, we had a shop partway up that sold just about everything, then an off license. at the top on Cross Chantrey Road my aunt and uncle William and Elsie Ogden also had a shop.
  11. Dad used to take to Fox House, we played in the stream, sometimes he collected sheep droppings for the garden. I played for a football team in the 60,s called the Kestrels, at Whitsun we would walk from Woodseats up Whirlowdale Road, through the park to the Roundhouse and take the old Roman road to Fox House then on to Castleton. Catch the bus home for tea then down to the Royal Oak Cemetery Road for a few pints.
  12. I worked at T C Harrison, sometimes when walking past Hallamshire Heating a tall gentleman with a moustache gave me a lift, he had a bronze coloured mk 3 Cortina, I think he was one of the bosses, he would be taking the car for a service. A lot has changed but when I go back there are still reminders of my youth
  13. I had pelvic pains, doctor did a PSA blood test, it was quite high, I was sent to urology, had biopsy, no cancer. I have since had a PSA level of 32, another biopsy, no cancer. I had no problems with biopsy, I am now monitored yearly and glad of it.
