Well Paul I will be blunt its a shocking place to be honest overrun by Eastern Europeans utube page hall shops I guarantee it will shock you how it's changed was a brilliant place in 70s as you will recall 👍

Not much difference down here.You have catchment areas where they seem to live and you know immediately due to car wrecks sitting around.Sorry state of affairs.

I think when I could not master Sugar Plum Fairy it was decided my future did not lay in the stringed section of the school orchestra. Hope your girls mastered the clarinet.Too complicated to me.

I had a guitar + Bert Weedons  (how to play the guitar in a day)

Never mastered it though.

When I went to work after I stopped dyeing my hair, some of my colleagues made fun of my unprofessional hairstyles when they noticed that my hair was not dyed.

Can I ask who you are?  You've referenced hair colour as did Idsworth.

Hiya meandyou, I lived there from 64 to around 76ish...sold the house to a lovely family and then we all moved to Hillsborough. Even went to Shiregreen Junior and Middle school.

 

It was a great road to grow up on and I had some fun times on there. Families, like the Rutherfords, Robertsons, Grants, Hancocks, Boolers, Swinerds, Nodders, Holmes and us the Taylors...I still park on there outside the old house when I visit Nat West at Firth Park.

I know Joanne Swinerd, she and I played in the Early Risers Bowling league on Sunday mornings.
