I grew up on Milnrow Rd, and I think the Atkin's I knew were a different family. Their house was attached to ours but we were in a corner house, so we lived on the road as said and they lived on Milnrow Drive. The oldest I'm sure was called either Arthur or Bernard, there was a daughter who'd be around 70 now called if I remember Pauline, then there was David, the youngest Jacqueline who would be 65 now. On the same road as me was another Atkin family, Margaret ( my best friend) Sandra, Barbara, and Susan. I wonder if any of these ex neighbours of mine come on this forum.

I( was born in Parson Cross in 1940 when people were friendly and were quite prepared to help their neighbours. I now feel sorry for the people who cannot get away from the area which seems to have become not unlike Beirut with problems.

Easy mistake to make cos Pete is about ten years or more younger than June

I never Knew the dog flick but I do remember David giving Peter a pup which

he called Ivan he had that dog for many years and he went all over the place

with the kids on our estate everyone knew Ivan, brilliant dog.

I knew Barbara. She'd be about 60/61 now I guess. Her best mate was BeeBee Nelson (real name Beatrice believe it or not). For a while they hung around with a couple of the cycle speedway guys on Wordsworth
