  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loosing your lovely lady Tom. I hope your children and grandchildren give you comfort and strength.
  2. Rubbish! I was there that night and poster Timbuck has given the correct description of the evening. Yes it was. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is exactly how I remember the concert that evening.
  3. I was in the Pegasus house team. I left school in 1960 ---------- Post added 07-09-2013 at 15:17 ---------- I went to Rainbow Forge. I would have been 7 or 8 when I started there, so that would be 1952/1953. It was a lovely school back then.
  4. Are there any posters on this thread who attended Carter Lodge from 1955 to 1960?
  5. Yes, he still lives in Sheffield. I am Susan.
  6. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. It's so sad to hear of someone dying so young. Life can be so unfair sometimes.
  7. Is Dougie 68? His name rings a bell and I think he may have been in my class at Carter Lodge. Oh I do remember. I'm just sorry my grandchildren can't experience the freedom we did.
  8. Yes I do remember. Oh what happy days they were. I should have included the name O'Connor in with the Downend, Spotswood & Lunney families. Sorry Julie. I have a faint recollection of some of us being down in the 'woods' as we referred to the trees at the bottom of the slag heap. Julie's brother Kevin fell out of a tree and I think, broke his arm. Then again, my memory is not what it used to be.
  9. When we married in 1967 we had to stay with my husbands parents for about 2 months. Our new build house wasn't finished in time for our wedding. It was a small builder who was building 12 pairs of semi detached houses. My husband to be, told the builder that we'd have to move in with him if the house wasn't finished by the time of our wedding. His reply was "That's ok but you'll get no peace at my house". I think it may have been preferable remembering back.
  10. Two and six Or 2/6d Actually, in today's money - 12½ pence.
  11. Back in the early 60's, I went out with a boy called Alan Day. He lived on Daffodil Road, as I recall, it was a house near the end.
  12. I too remember the button factory. Couldn't walk past it without collecting bits of mother of pearl. Heaven knows though, what I did with them once I got them home. On the field opposite the factory, I remember there used to be some sort of fete/fair held every year. Such innocent happy times to be had as a child in those days.
  13. You can, it's called saving every penny you can for 3 to 4 years. Not spending on going out/holidays etc.
