NOW YOU MENTION IT xhg I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT, IT WAS A VW GARAGE BUT I HAD FORGOTTEN UNTIL YOU JOGGED MY OLD GREY MATTER.


Definitely remember the garage itself Dave, set back off the road, low wall across the front I think, I remember going there during bob a job week, not sure if I got anything though.
Just seem to recall a VW sign on the front of the place.

Also remember Burns & Hudson near the Rising Sun, my dad got his first new car from there, Mk3 Cortina.

Who remembers the North East Cheshire Show when it was, I assume, at its peak, late 60s/early 70s? Was taliking with a pal this afternoon about the big marquees they had for the dog/cat/flower shows, used to go on the Sunday morning after and climb to the top of the marquees and slide all the way down the roof, until the parkie turned up.

My mate mentioned the tug o war, I'd forgotten that, very competitive it was too.
I had a decent childhood in Hazel Grove, always plenty of mischief to get up to.

The facebook page that people are referring to is called memories of growing up in Hazel Grove. There is a great photo of the tug of war that someone mentioned. Also plenty of school photos etc and photos asking if people know who is on photo. Very interesting!

Thanks for that Julie, don't know how I would have found it if you hadn't posted, not really facebook literate.
Thoroughly enjoyed browsing the pictures, recognised quite a few faces too, found one which included my auntie, she was 70 just a few weeks ago,in the photo she looks to be about 10 at the most, haven't spoken to her about it yet.
Also knew a good few of the people who have left comments, good memories.
Thanks again Julie.

Cheers Grover, like the other page there are lots of photos there, the carnival ones were particularly interesting, it used to be such a big day in the late 60s/early 70s, the show at the park was good too.
My favourite photo on there has to be the one of Gary Chatterton in Warburtons showroom, instantly recognisable, wonder who the girl was.

Thanks for the tip.

Hi, Regarding Warburtons motor shop i started work there in sept 1955 after leaving chapel street school(longlive big ben) and for those who never meet him you were lucky,anyway going back to warburtons the 3 brothers who ran it were Derek Reg Cliff, Derek made a trails bike and as you know lived on Chester Road and you could here him from the shop when he started it up the police told him it was to loud and he had to scrap it, i recall one day after dinner we had a mechanic called Cyril Lever he at that time lived on overton ave the job of a mechanic was to road test any bike they had repaired he was sat on a 500 bsa and kept reving it up but he let the clutch out to soon and went straight throw the big plate glass window and smashing into about 5 brand new bikes derek was not happy, derek died i think the way he would have wanted to on the Isle of Man tt course flat out.
