I remember it 12 years ago... with my Aunty owning the 3 Tonnes, Mum working in the White Hart and me being on the White Hart float for the parade through the Grove onto Torky park for the funfair :)

I drove through last summer and it has changed quite a bit.

Ok..here goes for remembering things!

The Golden Fryer chippy opposite the Rising Sun pub - great grub!

A million bikes resting against the Black cat cafe`s windows on a Sunday morning...how did they never break the glass?

The Flamingo chippy at Fiveways and it being a hang-out for all waifs and strays.

Jacksons lanes School garden with Mr Cullum(spudhead)taking class and all of us bored beyond.

Any memories of Jacksons Jailhouse (1969 -1974)

Bramhall outdoor swiming baths (sorry I know its not Hazel Grove but I endured it)....it was really cold!

Brookes cycle shop on the A6.

Lennons supermarket...my mum dragged be there frequently sadly as it involved carrying bags home!

The library...quiet,smelly,and the dull thud of books being stamped out.

Halcyon days....

Would that chippy be the one we oldies used to know as Lawton's? Think it was near the churchyard wall. Remember a Faith Lawton. Think the property was owned by Mr.Grundy. In fact, I think the Grundy's owned a lot of the properties in that area. Remember also Wainwright's paper shop (think the daughter went to Canada) and Harrisons. Still remember our Co-op number - 3063.

Grover how refreshing to hear of memories like that, they don't write numbers like that anymore eh!
i've only been in the grove about 25yrs but i remember the co-op being the clearing centre for tools and i once bought the entire stock of stanley knives for next to nothing (used to be a carpet fitter) and sold them on site for a tidy profit, then they turned it into a shopping giant and ruined it.

As you grow older, your old memories are easier to recall than what happended yesterday - guess that is why as you get older you like to be in touch with people from your younger days, eh? Just found a school friend from the early '50's. Remember a Pauline Norton who used to live/work at the Sun. Don't know if her sister or parents ran the pub. She worked at the same company my husband did in Manchester. Remember those grotty toilets across the street and the Copper Kettle on the other side of the road. Remember togogganing down the fields where the council houses are now on Hazelwood Road. We went from the top field and if you asked your brother nicely, he would shine the runners on your toboggan so that you could end up in the brook. Oh to be young again!

Lennons! OMG, I'd forgotten Lennons! And do you remember the 'Santa' display on top of the porch of the Golden Door (bakery)?

Ahh, the old Co-op - I still miss it now. As a kid, the toy department was heaven. I think the food department was the only one I didn't bother visiting on a regular basis.

Whatever happened to the Davenport Cinema?
I saw countless films there and also went to the Pantomime every year.
In particular I saw Jimmy Jewel and Hilda Baker in about 1973?...i think,and it was quite good.
Also remember the woods at the top of Mill lane (middlewood),and across from that the ever-smoking sulphur smelling slag heaps...phew it stank!
(running across the farmers fields was like a re run from `The great escape`)
What else then?
The old greyhound track, Simpson sausage factory,High Lane,and for something really way-back....does anyone remember `Dottys` field?....this was near Norbury hall Primary/junior school on Eyam rd???
