  1. Apparently Roma was very pretty and wore sprayed on gold lamee trousers she had some connection with Terry Steeples who owned the Black Swan in Sheffield they came to have their poodles clipped at my wifes fathers Jack Wright on School Street.
  2. name was Arthur Haynes. He had the Arthur Haynes Show on tv in the early 60's, his suffering wife was played by comedy actress Patricia Hayes and the stooge providing the comments which Arthur (comedy sketch name Oscar) would respond to being sometimes Julian Orchard and sometimes Nicholas Parsons You can find the sketches on You Tube if you just search for Arthur Haynes When he dressed as a middle aged guy in his raincoat and cap he always reminded me of your Uncle Stan Re your mother Freda, I did think it was a butchers shop she delivered for and that is probably how my mother would know her from. Not sure who Fred the Butcher was though - I only remember Harrisons Butchers run by Mrs Harrison and a guy by the name of Hoyle - their son Norman was older than myself. Strange lad then and time has proved that - he married Cynthia Hartley whose mother rode around Swallownest delivering mail for the Post Office located then near the crossroads. Cynthia committed suicide in, II think the late 60's, - used the car exhaust fumes via a tube into the car - did it on a country lane off the road which runs from Todwick Crossroads to Dinnington. Don't know if you are aware that Norman bred the Old English Sheep Dogs used in the original Dulux paint adverts There was a smaller butchers shop further down High Street but I never went in there - was that Freds Bucthers ? Didn't know Roy and June moved to South Africa, wonder why they chose there unless it was due to family connections. Often wondered where the name DOMOV originated from . Somewhere on this web site there is a mention of the name and its origins. Looks like the "Grim Reaper" has collected a few of the people, I am somewhat surprised that John Farrington is no longer with us , he was only a little bit older than myself - quite a nice guy I remember. Michelle would be the older one I seem to remember Nice to hear from you and Lyndsey and to know what its like on Park Drive, long time since I lived there - has the road been laid yet, or is it still just as it was when I lived there What about Memories - has the company now gone, I know Stan and his wife moved to a new home about 1966 when they sold their house to Eric and Juliette Dobson and also that they had no children. Unless Stan's brother had children to leave the business to But of course "Life Goes On and On …" Best Wishes - Victor - Malaysia Victor.my wife Janice Wright has a scar on her lip from Normans dog Digby,she was at crufts showing their poodles and bent down to get some biscuits and Digby went for her.Cynthia used to wear a different wig every week and she committed suicide on Brampton Straight mile.
