Any ex treeton colliery colleagues

Recommended Posts

Training Officer was my dad, Geoff Goy, died 1989, brother Mick was a fitter, he now sadly is in the advanced stages of Alzheimers at 63, he started ten years ago with it, Eric Tillery followed dad, he still lives in Treeton.

 

I was an electrician and Mick and I worked together at times. I knew Geoff your Dad he was a gent. I'm not sure but I think he was related (through marraige) to my family in some way. Sorry to hear of Mick's illness, he is the about the same age as me.

I was in Norfolk police at the time of the miners striker and we got on with the lads great. Just before Christmas we had a whip around and bought the pickets a few bottles of whiskey and we all did the hokey cokey around the burning fender

My dad was a deputy at treeton colliery in the 70s his name was Albert Sands and I followed him to work there after leaving school, in January 1976. my names Ian Sands. my time at treeton was short as we moved to Mansfield about September 1977. my memories of treeton are happy ones and I remember during my cps my trainer was a chap called Eric who's nickname was back to front, I also remember the colliery overman Pat Yates, George Ball, nickname Toby and a lanky long haired fella called Rover. I often worked with a chap called John and a Scotsman called Dave but I don't recall their surnames. Left the coal mining industry after the 1984 strike only a handful of the men at Sherwood colliery went on strike and been a Scargill follower I was disappointed with the conduct of the notts miners. Had they joined the strike this country wouldn't be in the state its in.

Hi all,

 

Not sure if any of you are still watching the page but one of my neighbours passed away last month who worked at Treeton Colliery and mentioned on this page - Mick Duggan. Sadly died of cancer. Just to let anyone who remembers him know.
