Sorry to hear about your dad mate .

My memory is shocking i cant believe how much you remember,i remember a few people ,

Pete farnell he moved to shiregreen and we lived a few doors apart in the 90s.

Kieth ford, he moved to shiregreen and still lives here,

I remember the baileys, the wilsons from the bottom of botham st, and i remember michell seal from school,i liked michell she was a right laugh at school.

When i read some of the names mentioned i remember the names but not the faces,but i left grimme in 72 and i was only 10 .

when you all went to whiteways i never went there.i went to hartley brook then firth park comp.

After we moved to shiregreen i spent all my time at my grand parents on skinnethorpe.

Hi ,i thought i would chip in,Michelle Seal was my sisters best friend,who was then called Kay Wild.We lived at no.3 Botham Street,the house that stood on its own.We moved to Shiregreen in january 73.It was strange for me because the week before we moved i went to see the new house with my dad on a saturday morning to take a few measurements,carpets and curtains etc,but there was the worst fog you can imagine,a reyt pea souper !! so couldnt really see the area much,then the following day i broke my femur playing football.Was in the old Royal hospital for 3 months in traction so didnt get to see the house until the middle of April.I do remember you from those grimesthorpe days Tony.Renwicks,Butlers ,Mcdonalds were on Carlisle road but shared the same yard as us.Barry Renwick was my best mate,you might remember his younger brother Kevin.Teales,Wilsons GoodladsHudsons Johnsons Daleys and more Wilds spring to mind.
