I moved from Swallownest to Driffield near Bridlington in 1966 then to Malaysia in 2006

 

I had long connections with Handsworth, my cousins Christine and Michael Brooks lived on Ballified and went to Ballifield School about 1951 to 1958. My father had Crest Service Station from 1967 to 1982/3 - Victor Hutchinson

 

He was a regular in the local pubs in an evening from the Old Crown right down to the one near the triangle whose name currently escapes me - spent many a long lunchtime there myself

 

Remember going to the Plaza Cinema when it was a cinema, and many many more things

 

Best Wishes to Handsworth - Victor Marshall Hutchinson - Subang Jaya, near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - summer every day of the year, no seasons, low cost living, 9-40am and already 93 degrees

 

I remember the Turf of course when the Morris's had it and when Mrs Morris use to play the piano
