Newhall Road and Sanderson Street

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I am Roy Jow's daughter he lived on Newhall road not sure what number though. He had three sisters Audrey, Pat and Carol the youngest. Sadly there is only my dad and Aunty Carol now. He always speaks about the good old days and how friendly everyone were. My grandad Ernest had a scrapyard at the bottom of Broughton Lane.

 

If any questions I'm sure my dad would love to hear from anyone.

Hi Trace, Give my best wishes to Roy. We were in the same class at Newhall, and for a time I lived on Newhall Road before switching to Paget Street. I met Roy a few years ago at a class reunion, and it was our first meeting for many, many years. I don't think Roy came to the last reunion. It is now some time since we all got together, and, sadly, I doubt if it will happen again. Is Roy on Facebook? Send me a PM. K

Could you email me again please, and give me your private email, sure dad would be thrilled to hear from you. He does not use the PC bless him, hence why I am searching. Look forward to hearing from you Trace. We could always meet you for a cuppa one time in town.

Can't put my e-mail address on here, but no doubt you will soon complete enough messages to qualify to send PMs. I shall look forward to that, but, meanwhile, tell Roy to take care, and start humming "We are the Newhall boys..."!
