I was in Millhouses Park with my grandchildren today and seeing them have their first paddle on the boats on the boating lake evoked many childhood memories of my own. I could vividly remember going to the park with my mum and dad on the number 17 bus from Upwell Street I just wondered if any one else remembers making such a long journey, having picnics in the park, splashing in the paddling pool and sailing in the paddle boats. One strong memory I have is my mum taking us one day just after it had rained and the scent from the wall flowers in the flower beds is one I will never forget. Happy Days!

 

Do you remember going to Bakewell Park on the bus with the Co-op Circle? I have a photograph of us somewhere. We went to Clee every year on a coach as well!

I certainly do I can recall the photograph there may be a copy at my mums I will have to check.

Fish and chip tea at the Winter Gardens after a day spent on the beach, riding the little dipper and the horses down near Wonderland and then into Wonderland spending up all our money, winning little prizes on the stalls or machines and taking home presents for our mums! Happy days

What times did the Buzzer/Siren go off every day. I think it sounded at twelve noon and 5.30 teatime but did it also go of in the evening?. When as youngsters we were up wood no one had a watch in them days so the only way of knowing the time is when the siren went off, either that or go down and have a look at Jimmy Childs clock.

Remember the sirens golng off occasionally going in the Firth Brown / English Steel area but don'y know exactly where or when.

I was really surprised when I saw the Tour de France running through that area.would have had a problem keeping up with them on our old BSA's and Wiggies Gaspipes. It was good to see how things have changed

In the 1960's it went off in the morning at 7.30am, not sure about the afternoon exactly but I think it was about 4.15pm - 4.30pm
