Ronnie Ronalde at Heeley Green
Apparantly this whistling wonder of 1950's wireless is still
alive.Mercifully he now lives in New Zealand where his avian
outpourings go unnoticed amidst the wildlife..however a birdnote of warning to the UK "Mister Monastery Garden " is
currently on tour in the North.

I went to Annes Rd School and Heeley Bank, I have lived on Spencer Rd, Richards Rd, Alexander Rd, and Gleadless Rd, I think my parents must have some nomadic blood in them.

I also went to Newfield school but it was fully mixed by then, but it still had the blue and red bulidings (Boys and Girls). Was Chinney there when you were there (Mr Wilson). I am also interested in your family name as you may know some of my relatives as they all lived around that area and some would be your age. Send me and Banksia a private mail to discuss.
my parents lived behind ponfords in rooms,my grandparents lived on well road,as did my auntie and uncle,can you rember DR McCULLUM?he had a surgery on spencer road and upper albert road,he brought all my children into this world,my sister went to anns road school too.

I remember Heeley very well, used to live on Derby Street, top of Penns Road from 1967 to 1970. Went to Heeley Bank Junior School. My nan lived on the maisonettes on Abney Drive, near the Upper Heeley Club. The picture palace was a bingo when I remember it, there used to be a herbalist shop on Heeley Green where my grandad would take me for a glass of sasparella.

The grocer on Heeley Green had a a black poodle as did my grandad. He asked the owner of the shop if the 2 dogs could mate and the shop owner said no. So one day when my grandad was out walking the dog, he saw the shop owners dog in the back yard alone. Yes, my grandad without the dog owners consent pushed our poodle in the yard and low and behold 6 pups were born. The shop owner never did find out.

I remember Taggys ice cream for the little lumps of ice in it. I could see Taggys yard from where we lived, think its been demolished now.

Can you remember Elliots chippie, there was alway a queue stretching outside the shop on Saturdays. They were the best chips in Sheffield.

Pardon me correcting you but it was Staley's newpapers. I had an account with them for years when I lived on Gleadless Road.
I certainly remember Amy Mortons shop. We would take in the soap power coupons and trade them for lemon fizz or some such like. A girl I went to school with called Susan Marshall lived in what used to be a shop opposite the school. It was on the corner of Gleadless and another street, the name of which I cannot recall, the large windows were all blacked out with paint, ring any bells ?

The old shop I mentioned was on the same side as the Shaky but further up. There was Staley's and below that a few more shops, one was a butchers and a fruit shop I think, and then this side little street ran off to the left. I think there was a joinery business on there. The house/shop was on that corner.
