My Father PJ Brennan worked at Springfield hospital as a nurse in the early 1970's. I wonder if anyone remembers him from back in the day?

I attended St Joseph's Technical High Longsight from 1963 - 1968.
My name was Christine Royle.  I remember Anne Thompson and many others in our first year form of St. Clare's.  I keep in touch with some girls & go to the Beatles Convention in Liverpool every August with friend from school - Shelagh Kelly.
Hope to see some faces at the reunion mass on the 24th March.

I wonder if anyone can help me with some information. Is anyone aware of a tailor who worked at 36b Cheetham Hill Rd in the 1930s or 40s. Thank you very much.

Hi, I've just read the recent post about Parkside school and planting trees at grand lodge. I thought sometimes I was the only one who remembers those days !!

I was at parkside from 1953 (nursery) until 1961 and have all my old school pictures. My name was Reberta Goodolph. I remember Miss Walton the headmistress who had a box of smarties in her drawer. Mr Hargreaves who tried to teach us french and Mrs Waterhouse the school secretary. I was in the same class as her daughter Joyce. My best friend Janice Cowan who lived on Blackley New Road. We had a rounders team that played all the local schools - Victoria Avenue, St Claires, Crab Lane and temple School.

We went to Tintwistle camp for a few days and slept in bunks - it seeemed like the other side of the world.

Now my grandchildren tell their friends that I planted the trees that they pass each day.

I'd love to hear anyone else's memories.

Great days

Manchester Chat / Manchester Piccadilly HS2 upgrade plan revealed
« Last post by celeste on 19:45:06, 16/03/18 »

Plans for an upgrade to Manchester Piccadilly to fit in HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) include a "grand entrance" and underground platforms.
The proposals, which have yet to be costed, place NPR platforms and a tram stop under the high-speed lines, alongside the existing railway station.
They also include the creation of a shared concourse flanked by retail areas and a tree-lined boulevard.
HS2 is due to arrive by 2033, while a date for NPR is yet to be confirmed.
