Times growing up in Rodbourne were wonderful we didn’t have computers etc them days we had to make our own games up. We were never bored though playing at Locoboard in Charles St and Mannington Rec was all part of this everyone got on together. I remember these teachers at Jennings St they were a good bunch Dorothy Sprittles used to have music shop in Faringdon Rd and she taught music to many on different instruments. My freinds were Shirley Johnson, Sandra Fisher, Brenda Hunt, Angela Newton, Elaine Williams, I also know Les Holt, John Hinton, Kenny Wallace (he was a bit of a god to some girls) Les Goddard, Mick Hickey, Rod Wheatley and many more to many to mention. I lived at 31 Rodbourne Rd next to Pullen’s shop; my family was Hitchmans of Rodbourne Rd and Bruce St. I had an aunt in Charles St. I know Maurice Jones when he came over to England a few years ago I went to his reunion at the Steam Train pub in Cheney Manor Rd. Ah for the good old days! If anyone remembers me please get in touch my email is shirleyrose808@hotmail .com as I now live in Bristol. It would be be nice to hear from anyone. I was in touch with Dave Webb from Redcliffe St who went to Darwin, Australia but I think he may have passed on now R.I.P if you have mate.
