  1. Hi Everybody, I was at Gleadless Primary School from 1956 to 1963. My late Brother John Worrall was at Gleadless County School until 1956, He then went to City Grammar School . He was in the same class as Peter Cousin who went to Hurlfield School for Boys after Gleadless. Other people I remember in the 50's were Margaret Swain, Dianne Dale, Graville Dale and Barbara Ackroyd. These people were all older than Me. Another friend who was in the year above Me was Susan Kershaw, Susan went onto Hurlfield School for Girls. There is a comprehensive posting for Gleadless Primary School on Sheffieldhistory.co.uk - Schools - Gleadless Primary School. Best wishes, Paul 'Wazzie' Worrall.
  2. Hi Everybody. This is a very interesting link. Although my favour band, and have been since about 1963 are the Rolling Stones, some of the other bands mentioned are also excellent! The Sensational Alex Harvey Band were brilliant, I saw them at the City Hall in about 1975? The lead guitarist - Val Clementson? had the 'white clown face'. They were also on the Old Grey Whistle Test a couple of times. My older daughter who is now 50yr loved the Glitter Band when she was a little kid and they were on Top of the Pops. Harvey Ellison the saxophonist with the Glitter Band lived on Bents Road and We used to see him in the Hammer and Pinchers - where is Harvey now? Best wishes, Wazzie Worrall PS - Not forgetting Canned Heat either - The Bear was Unique. A good friend was a roadie for them in the late 60's/early 70's and has lots of interesting stories. So many of these charactors are no longer with us, but their Music lives on! Wazzie Worrall (again)
  3. Hi. I Agree with 'bassett one'! Where would We be without the Rolling Stones or Bob Dylan? Mind You - there is a wide birth to pick from. You just have to listen to Sound of the Sixties/Seventies! Happy New Year Everybody! Wazzie Worrall
  4. Hi Everybody, Are there any local charities who are taking old Greetings Cards for recycling? All the best for 2022! Cheers, Wazzie Worrall.
  5. Hi Daryl , Thanks for the info about the Steam Special on Saturday. So Clun Castle is running through Chesterfield to Barrow Hill and not D&T Station or Dore Tunnel Loop? Cheers, Wazzie Worrall
  6. Hi Zarniwoop, Thanks for the information regarding the Special on Wednesday. I'll be going to D&T Station. The time I got at D&T is 11:39 which is similar. I've still not got a definite time for the Special on Saturday morning. However, the locomotive looks as if it's 7029 - Clun Castle. Cheers, Wazzie.
  7. Hi Annie and Everyone Else. According to my diary there are x2 Steam Specials due through D&T Station next week. 1. Wednesday 15.21 - The Christmas White Rose Express (Saphos Trains) 2. Saturday 18.21 - White Rose Express. Tyseley - York. At the moment I haven't got times for either of the Trains. Cheers, Wazzie Worrall
  8. Robbie is a very Sad Loss. From Reggae to Bob Dylan Sly and Robbie were always there! RIP Robbie, We all Love You. Wazzie Worrall.
  9. Hi Annie, Thanks for the information. I'll be going to D&T Station in the morning. There's another Steam Special due through Chesterfield at approximately 11:09 on Wednesday 8/12. Cheers, Wazzie Worrall.
  10. Hi Annie & Lemmy, Thanks for letting Me know about the Steam Special which comes through Chesterfield on Saturday. I'll keep an eye out to see the times of the other Steam Special which comes through D&T Station on 04/12/21. Cheers, Wazzie Worrall.
  11. Hi Everybody especially Annie. The York Yuletide Express is due to travel through Chesterfield then on the 'back line' via Barrowhill to York next Saturday - 27/11/21. The second Steam Special, also called the York Yuletide Express is due to travel through Dore & Totley Station between Liverpool and York on Saturday 04/12/21. Does anybody know the actual times of these x2 trains? Best wishes, Wazzie Worrall.
  12. Hi Annie, Thanks for the update - brilliant. I'll be at Dore and Totley Station. Kind regards, Wazzie Worrall
  13. Hi Annie, Have You any idea about what time the Peak Express (Tin Bath) is due through Dore & Totley Station on Sunday? Thanks. Best wishes, Wazzie Worrall
  14. Hi, I've lived in Sheffield nearly 70yrs and I've never heard of anybody referred to as 'duck'. To my knowledge 'duck' is a term of affection in North East Derbyshire/Chesterfield. My partner is from Chesterfield and her family always referred to each other as 'duck'. In Sheffield we are much more likely to refer to each other, male/female as 'love'. Many years ago a friend of mine who had recently moved to Sheffield from London was shocked when a big bloke at a bus stop referred to him as 'love'. I told him he would need to get used to this. He has now lived here for over 35yrs and calls people 'love' himself! Wazzie Worrall
  15. Hi Annie, Thanks for the steam train information. Your postings are always very useful. Best wishes, Wazzie Worrall
