Anyone from Shiregreen or near?

Recommended Posts

The people I did hang around with early on were Brian (Cherry)Williams, Doug & Michael Thompson and later Sue & Janet Ellis, Roger Storie, Alan Chittenden, Faye Longmore, Ian White,Bob Wood and Vicky Hall as well as many more I can't readily recall. I knew the vicar Philip Cawood very well but fell out big time with his successor the Rev Scott. /QUOTE]

 

Of the names above I remember Alan Chittenden (nickname Chitts) although we went to different schools I was in the St Christopher's Boy Scouts with him in the same "patrol". I remember Rev Cawood also. About 1958 to 63ish.

Happy days.:)

 

My next door neighbours were Janet and Sue Ellis. I am still in touch with Sue she lives in Deal Kent

Hi Susan,

Memories come flooding back from this thread .We lived at no 13 beck close untill about 1963 and went to Beck Rd infants untill 1960 then I went Owler Lane Intermediate.

A few names spring to mind Jeff Hudson Geoff Crownshaw Geoff Drury John Winter.

People have written some unkind words about Shiregreen but I have some fond memories.

We moved to High Storrs in 63 but have never forgotten some great times with my old mate Steve Langford.

 

John Clapham

I knew a Geoff Crownshaw who was a nurse at Lodge Moor Hospital is it the same Geoff you know?

Did anyone live on or near the beginning of Hartley Brook Road in the 60s.

The Huntsman end.

I use to visit my nan quite a lot on there and remember Desmond Briggs, his dad was of the same name and his mother was called Edith. There was also a mrs Dearn and a Mr Denham.

Further up lived the Eddisons, Joan nee Bennett and her husband Bill was an MP or councillor or something.

I lived at 26 I am still in touch with des and Edith Briggs. They attended my Dads funeral in June last year.i remember Mrs Dearness too, Neil Websters Grandma. I know the Eddisons they were agents for David Blunkett Mp. Who was your grandma what number did she live at? We were The Floods.

Hi Pat

I do remember you from about 1957/8 We were friends with Linda Hodgetts, I also remember Ted well from the church. You may recall that I was at Central Technical School and a very keen cyclist. My dad was a pal of mr Hodgetts through the gardening club - but I have no idea where that was.

 

The name Jean Ball sounds very familiar.

My mum was good friend of Joans at school. Sadly my mum passed away 2 yrs ago so I cant ask her but Im sure Jean Ball was mentioned at some point.

My mum lived next door to Mrs Dearne and Mrs Briggs. My Mums maiden name was Antcliffe.

 

I also went to Hartley Brook and Firth Park schools.

My sister Vanessa Flood knew the Antcliffes on Hartley Brook Road we lived at 26 The Floods
