I had a friend called Dorothy Simpson who lived on Janson street.I lost touch with her years ago.She would be in her late sixties.

We lived on Janson street until 1947 but our house was demolished to make way for a factory.

I remember a Mr and Mrs Simpson, in those days children did not call adults by their first names. did she work at the English Steel? Mind you I would have thought she would have been older than you say - but to kids all adults over 21 looked ancient.

 

If it is her,they lived in the yard at the side of us. their house was the last house before the steel works on Jansen street and we lived on Higgitt Road. mrs simpson was a little woman with gingery hair and i seem to recall they had a corgi dog.

 

their next door neighbours were the Blades family, Peggy and Ron were the parents and Roger Frank Alan? Ann Barbara the kids. Then there was another house and then the Dances mum dad Stuart and Trevor. they also had a car which Trevor used to give us little runs in. tiny car with indicators that used to stick out.

 

If it is the same woman I will ask my family if they know what happened to her.

Does anyone remember the playcentre at Carbrook J unior school? 4-6pm weekdays. snooker for the lads, dancing for the girls - teddy bears picnic ring any bells? I can still do that dance. the fortunes "You've got your troubles" was the hit of the day.

 

the guy who was like Basil Fawlty running the painting room where we painted clowns and gollywogs and won a prize for the best - i remember they were two pieces of paper which had a page of coloured picture which you cut up and then remade the jigsaw type pieces to reform the picture. not much of a description but then again not much of a prize either.

 

the littlies room where we were given a cork tile, nails, hammer and pieces of wood with holes in the centre where we made pictures from the wooden tiles. all technical stuff , those were the days!

 

Pop Naylor from Coleridge Rd school ran the centre.

 

There were outside activities if summer and weather permitting. I remember playing rounders.

Hi Jeano

that is the family the parents were called Cyril and Beatty the son was called Colin who died and Dorothy was my childhood friend and I still used to go and stay with them after we were rehoused.Then somewhere along the way we made new friends and lost touch.

We were called Hammond and lived at no.52 Janson st.Not the chippy that had the shop at the other side of the road from your yard they were called Hammonds.

I remember the Blades who lived next door to Dorothy.

Thanyou for the memories and hope you can help re Dorothy.
