Recommended Posts

Just been sat in front of the computer for about 3hrs looking through old threads really interesting. Albert Parr we lived next door to him I remember taking him something to eat and found him dead in his chair. All the photos of people I still recognise even though we are all a lot older.

Have you got your bus pass yet? I've got to wait while May 2012 for mine, were looking forward to getting it ....... think she might be a bit envious of us being so young.

Hi I remeber grimesthorpe well Had many a happy day in and around therelol I remember getting cardboard from a corner shop called hildas and going in the cemetry and climbing the hill at the back and sliding down ,lol those nettles hurt if you slide in them.seems the fun we had didn`t cost alot then as we seemed to have lots of imagination and had fun out of anything .I drove through there a while back,and not alot has changed although they have sprused the houses up and some have been pulled down.But the memories remain.
