  3. I cant believe I've only just found this thread. I started work with Henry Pooley, part of the W&T Avery group, in 1960 and left in 1974. I remember Keith Eyre and the others mentioned. Pooleys was based on Eyre Street at the time and later moved to Lambert Street at West Bar. They were happy times.

  7. Thank you all for your help, I didn't think it would be so difficult to get rid of an item that someone could use.
  8. Thanks for that tzijlstra I might have to try Towsure. Even the scrap men cant take them.
  9. Thanks for that rossyroonney, the dump it sites wont take them, even if they are empty. I would give it to anyone who needed it. Thanks any way.
  10. Where can I get rid of a gas cylinder? I have a part filled BUTANE 13.5 Kg gas cylinder with gas valve. I don't know how much gas there is in it . Does anyone know where I can get rid of it?
  11. I lived on Margate Drive in the prefabs. I was in the same class as Mick Martin. I remember the name Brian Goldthorpe. I think he may have had two brothers but not sure. Was his name Goldthorpe or was it Gawthorpe? Did he live at the top of the hill on Grimesthorpe Rd, on the left hand side facing down the hill?
  12. Mick Martin was the eldest of three brothers, Anthony was next and Kevin was the youngest.
  13. Can anyone tell me the name of the Chinese restaurant that was just behind Cole Brothers? I think it was on Crossburgess street. You had to go up stairs to the restaurant. I had many a good meal in there.
  14. Check out Wigfield Farm at Worsbrough. They put on a very good day for my nieces son a couple of years ago. Lots of animals to see and a lunch for the kids and not too costly
