I've just found this page, and has brought back memories. I vaguely remember the name Plant who lived on Dugdale Road. We lived across the road from Mr & Mrs North, and their next door neighbours were the Jones family, the sons were David and Bryn (I think). There were also the Shaw, Colton and Beatson families lived there. We moved to Yew Greave Crescent in 1974/1975. My brother and myself went to Mansel Infant and Junior School, then went to Colley school. I left Sheffield in 1985 and moved to Kent. My maternal Grandparents used to live in Wordsworth Close. Mr Mbele was my form tutor in Year 4 at Colley. I also remember Mr Mellor and Mrs Birkby. Mrs McNulty taught French. Mike Howe was my first form tutor (he taught woodwork). The newsagents on Margetson Crescent shops was Corbidges, there was Deakins greengrocers, Hulley's butchers, and the Chemist was Lomas', with the Post Office at the back of the shop. The Co-Op had 2 shops, on was a butchers, and the other was a grocery shop. I also remember Horace Ratcliffe, and the bungalow on the corner of Yew Lane. Didn't Horace used to drive round selling bread?

I was a friend of Barry Fox and played football with him I also knew Veni. We used to meet very often in the Middlewood Tavern sadly now closed. I left the U.K. IN 1969 and met Barry again when I came back for a holiday in 1998. He and Veni had long been divorced when I met him again. through mutual friends I am told that Barry is very ill.

I didn't know the bungalow had gone. I don't have any family left in Sheffield, as my Mum moved to Worksop, then moved to Andover three and a half years ago, where my brother lives. Is the Fighting **** still open? Never went in there myself.

Yeah Walt was lovely guy. He didn't have a chair in those days but was quite severley palsied. Watching him light a fag was always interesting as he had to co-ordinate in a way which was very difficult for him - never heard him complain though

 

Yes Walter is my uncle he is in wheelchair now I played golf with him every Sunday at my grandads on the garden we also took him fishing and he was a good fisherman

According to public records, Elaine married Fred Hiley in 1969. Just beware that your interest may not be welcome, but follow this LINK and the rest is up to you.
