Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

Looks like a small pony, glad I didn't bump into that on the way home from the Grimey club. Dor's remembers the dog, but doesn't remember who owned it.

All old Sheffield Arms regulars will be sorry to hear the couple that took over the pub after Roy and Ada left, namely Gerry and Pat, Pat died over the Christmas period and will sadly be missed by all.

I think when they left The 'Arms, they went to the pub, bottom of Dixon Lane, Norfolk Arms?

Hi to everyone!

My name is Harry Standage and i lived on Cyclops Street from birth i.e 1933 to the early 1950s.

Have only just got going on the internet and have read with great enthusiasm and affection some of the posts on this thread!

I recognise many of the names, pubs and landmarks mentioned on here and its been wonderful to hear people's stories and memories! I have many of my own, still incredibly vivid after all this time.

I would be very keen to hear from anybody who remembers me, including any ex Grimesthorpe heroes or Owler Lane Secondary pupils, including Peter Dunn, who i lost touch with a long time ago.

Hi Harry and welcome from me too. I'm looking forward to your stories.

 

I was only a comparatively short time at Grimesthorpe although they were my formative years and seemed forever. I lived at the lower end on Adsetts Street from birth in 1943 and left for Shiregreen in 1957 aged 14.

I note that you mention the schools. There are several threads and here's a sample post of mine from the thread ''Earl Marshall Secondary...as it was known before''. The pics are on photobucket and now have lots of adverts on. I'm now using Google for future posts instead.

I love this Yorkshire grace - many thanks to Elaine Pickard of Sheffield Indexers.

 

Thank you God and make us able

 

To eight as much as what’s on’t table

 

Then God if thy bounty beckons

 

We’ll leave room enough for ‘seconds’,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and after the meal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you God for what we’ve getten

 

If moor ‘ad been cut moor ‘ad been etten
