Wow, yes i do remember kev renwick,tiny little lad with round glasses ,just like me , we went on a mission one day to the quarry opposite shiregreen cemetry now jacobs drive and the quarry was full of water, kev fell in ,the sides were very slippy ,we had a right job getting him out,it terrified us,we were so lucky,ill never forget how scared we all were. The wilsons moved to shiregreen,michell,delise,wayne and malcom, wayne was my best mate back then,malc and my little brother went missing one day ,they had been gone all day ,they had ended up over burngreave and the nuns found them and bathed them ,our terry was only 3.

  17. Its never pointless if you want to see change mate. There is always an answer to the problem its just finding it.
  18. Sorry to hear about your dad mate . My memory is shocking i cant believe how much you remember,i remember a few people , Pete farnell he moved to shiregreen and we lived a few doors apart in the 90s. Kieth ford, he moved to shiregreen and still lives here, I remember the baileys, the wilsons from the bottom of botham st, and i remember michell seal from school,i liked michell she was a right laugh at school. When i read some of the names mentioned i remember the names but not the faces,but i left grimme in 72 and i was only 10 . when you all went to whiteways i never went there.i went to hartley brook then firth park comp. After we moved to shiregreen i spent all my time at my grand parents on skinnethorpe.
  19. I understand people's frustrations in seeing page hall in such a state,but i dont see how just washing our hands of the situation can resolve it. I didn't know that the council go every other day to clean the streets,if thats the case then surely there are leaders of the community that could be doing more. I grew up in page hall and its sad to see such decline but i fear it will just get worse if there is no intervention of any kind from the wider community,they need help,that im sure of.
  20. So why dont we all get together one weekend with them ,get some vans and clean the place up . It would be a start .... From small acorns mate ,and all that ..
  21. Hi gary course i remember you How are you , Did you know my mum went to school with youre dad.

  23. Why is it that in 2019 we still have to put up with all this dribble about how bad it is in page hall. This forum has been slagging page hall off for years. The community in page hall and firvale must be sick to their back teeth with all this negativity and alienation. We are supposed to be friendly ,tolerant, caring people in sheffield, yet we can't wait to add to whatever misery we suppose our European neighbours live in. Page halls New community need our help not our constant criticism, and it is a new community with a diverse populous. Over the past May be 10 /15 years The Asian and Arab community have slowly left page hall and now our new neighbours are copping for all what they received in the 60s 70s and 80s Have we come no where over all these years . I agree it shouldn't be down to the council to sort things out ,I think it's down to us all that live in the surrounding areas to help our new neighbours. It's time to step up and help our new neighbours and get out of that 70s sitcom (love Thy neighbour) Attitude.
