  1. Thanks for that Nikki-red, I had it in my head that it was car showroom of some description, so I wasn't far off. ---------- Post added 20-05-2018 at 20:46 ---------- Thanks to you too muddycoffee, I can tell my husband I was right. He insisted I was talking rubbish!
  2. What was the Cavendish (West Street) called previously, or was it not even a pub?
  3. I remember all those but it's not one of them. Thanks anyway, it'll probably come to me when I'm not racking my brains. ---------- Post added 12-08-2017 at 18:58 ---------- Oh I missed the first line of your reply, yes it was Tom Cobley. Thanks for that. ---------- Post added 12-08-2017 at 19:13 ---------- Was there one called Wee Willie or have I dreamt that?
  4. In the 80's and early 90's there was a pub at either North or South Anston that I can't remember the name of. It's driving me mad and I've googled it but nothing's come up so I'm guessing it's not there anymore. I'm sure it was a man's name(Tom Something?). Anyone have a clue?
  5. No, don't remember that name.Thanks though. ---------- Post added 09-04-2017 at 20:19 ---------- Remember the name but it's not the one I'm thinking of. Thanks
  6. No it wasn't that but thanks for looking.
  7. Can anyone remember the name of the hairdressers on Union Street in the late '70s? It was run by a couple called Michael and Fran and was one of the first of it's kind back then. Very modern and very popular. Lots of us from Telephone House went because they gave discount to BT employers. Trying to recall the name is driving me mad!!
  8. I can also recommend BAR Investigations. Very professional. 0114 3992302
  9. I knew a Nellie Moore, lived at the other side of our yard when we lived on Gower Street, but think their address would have been Clun Street. Her husband and eldest son were called John and other son was Alan as I remember. They moved to Woodhouse like we did when everything was knocked down. Would it be the same Nellie?
  10. She's probably been talking to some of the biggies who played Don Valley and fancies playing there. Oh hang on a minute, someone better tell her it's rubble now!!
  11. I've been to the one in the Antiques Centre and it was lovely. Didn't know another one had opened but if it's as good it's well worth a visit.
  12. Does anyone remember Sheryl Thomas? She would have been there from 1965. She was my next door neighbour at Woodhouse, she went to Abbbeydale when I went to Hinde House. They eventually moved and I often wonder what happened to her,
  13. Sorry if it's offends you, but I was just saying it doesn't do to underestimate the power of the council, based on my own experience.
  14. On the contrary, I think people underestimate the power of the council. Speaking as a a householder who had planning refused, I later found that one of the main objectors was a neighbour (unaffected by the plans we submitted) who admitted afterwards to launching a campaign to get ours plans rejected, simply because, and I quote, 'I used to be on the planning committee, in fact I was chairman for a year, and I know how to get these things done'. Probably not pertinent to this particular thread but it still rankles after 10 years, especially when the council 4 years later sold the toilets adjacent to my property and allowed the builder that purchased them to do basically what we had wanted. I'm afraid it leaves me very cynical where the council is involved.
