Hi John,

I have tried again to e-mail you again and it still gets rejected.

I even tried using my other e-mail server but no luck. I will create an new address and post it here tomorrow (I'm reluctanct to post my personal e-mail addy on an open forum)

I'd love to talk to you. Greta Uncle Ben was my granddads brother, and both went to Teacher Training College in Winchester. They were from Co. Durham. I never actually met Ben, but I knew he swam across Morcambe Bay with one arm! I have a photo of him in his Army Officers Uniform that I would like to send you a copy of.

Having just found this site, it is interesting to see peoples memories. there don't seem to be any of my contempories listed, but as i'm now 80 perhaps thats undersandable.I lived on Douglas Road, went to Chapel St .school in the days of Miss Pitman, Miss Protheroe, Ben Gordon and all the other taechers of that era.
Went to the Methodist Chugsh and Sunday School, played tennis at Wesley Park, was in the 1st H.G scouts whose scoutmaster was Harold Vernon (father of ,I think, the currenr S.m.
Names I remember: Donald Wood, son of Woods Jewellers opposite the Co-op, John Fear, Raymond Adshead( later a sergeant with Stockport Police,David Berry (renowned drummer and tennis player) amongst the boys, and Margaret Burdon,Hylda Merscough, Doreen Vernon,Audrey Perkins ,all menbers of the youth club at the methodist Church.
Do any of these names ring bells?
Will keep looking on this site to see if I have brought any memories

Hi Philip

Harold did found 1st HG Scouts. His son, Mike, was the Group Scout Leader until recently. Sadly, he died last year. Mike's sister was Doreen Vernon. She married George Sykes who also passed away last year. The current GSL is Doreen & George's son, so the family connection carries on. The Group is going from strength to strength and Harold's legacy has been a huge source of inspiration and salvation for hundreds and hundreds of Hazel Grove boys (and now girls too) throughout the years!

Welcome to the forum :-)

Hi Philip. Can't remember any family called Moss on Douglas Road off hand. We lived on Rochester Grove. I am younger than you by about 6 years but an older brother and a sister were close to your age - maybe a year or so younger. John Fear, Ernie Potts, Joan Needham are on www.friendsreunited.co.uk if I am allowed to use another web site name. I know Ernie and Joan are still around and I have their email addresses somewhere. Audrey Perkins lived on Great Moor and I don't know if she is around. Hilda Myerscough was on the friendsreunited school site but her name is no longer there. David Berry is still around and lives abut 500 yards from where he was born on Queen's Road. There is a free magazine called "Inside Hazel Grove" and in the April to May 2011 issue there is an article on David Berry. I have the web page for this publication so that you can read about David. You can reach me at my email which is grover at manchester.com

What number did you live at? Miss Blackwell, Miss Cayton and Miss Adams all lived on Douglas Road.

As you can see by my name I am also grover born and bred :-)

To Grover.My family, all seven children of whom I am the ypungest, lived at 'Caldy@ which was next door to The Vernons house. In about 1953 my sister Shirley moved to one of the first new build houses on Rochester Grove after the death and sle of Caldy. I eremember the Blackwells, the male of the family was known as SSkipper or Skip and was with the scout group.The flitcrofts lived on the corner of Lawrence Rd and Douglas Rd and had a son, David.












i was amazed and delighted to receive two replies to my initial posting and look forward to many more as people read it.
Till next time, best wishes and thanks to both callers.Regards Philip T. Moss
