  1. Sad and sorry to hear Steven passed some years ago I didn't know. Steven was a couple of years younger than me but we played together quite a bit in the sixties. I'm from bottom of Valley Rd and did my apprenticeship at Tyzacks . We once made a banmarie for a chap called Garbutt who was a charge hand in another department as he diD pie and peas etc in a local working men's club. But I don't know if he was Stevens dad or uncle.
  2. Forty eight years ago today Mrs Rose at the Park Hotel Hillsborough gave my wife and I a wedding reception buffet fit for a King. Is the hotel still open and is Mrs Rose still around. We live between Leicester and Coventry now so don't get up much.
  3. Didn't realise the tech is now gone. I did weld and fab there for about 8 years after relocatIng from Newall road and pond street work shops Lecturers include Alan Flint ,Keith Jackson and Mick . More names could follow when I get my brain in gear. Talking about 68 to about 75.

However we got up on Sunday the first I'd December with flowers etc. To find a bunch of red roses there which only looked about a week old. The grave holds my grandma Betsy Ann Died 1935 my grandad Joseph died about 1962 and my uncle Douglas killed in about 1940 a war casualty. They were Whitham Sandersons. Also my parents ashes Jack and Elsie Downing can anbody please throw light on where the flowers came from. I think I am the last of this line so would appreciate any info on this one 🙏
  10. The woman who ran the place (not the owner) was known by all as "auntie" think A Connie Evans also worked there but can't remember the two Mentioned.

  14. Remember Brian he used to sharpen the cylinder from my lawn mower in exchange for a few welding favours. RIP mate.
  15. Just got back to Hinckley from a trip to Loxley cemetry to place some flowers on my wife's Grandparents grave. The flowers are back with us as we could not get to the grave as it is impassable with five foot high brambles and weeds. No one can visit loved ones there as you can't get to them. Any one else had a similar experience. ?
