Hello, I lived at 37 deneside, are you related to Rodney?
I taught him to fall off his motorbike, I wonder if he will remember.I left in 65. Now living in Sale.
I still keep in touch with 'the grove' via John Showell, I don't suppose you know him.

Hi I'm new to this board so I thought I'd just pop on and say hello to everyone. I have very fond memories of the grove having lived there from 1980/86. I have 2 daughters Melanie and Abigail who both took part in the carnival when we lived there! Abigail was a rosebud and Melanie runner up in the Princess competition...lovely days and very happy memories.I wonder if ant of you remember us?

Hey, I knew Johnny Showell - his mum Jenny and my mum were friends in the '40's and I also worked at the mill in the office when Jenny worked at the mill. Also knew a Pete Nixon but he didn't live in the Valley when we all knew him. He was fond of motor bikes - did Pete frequent the Silver Moon??

Hi everyone
I was one of the bikers that used to frequent the Black Cat Cafe back in 65/67, Best Mate was Stuart Renshaw, me being one of the smaller guys he used to be my bodyguard. Still live in Hazel Grove, I moved into Offerton when I got married, but not for long as I got home sick. My Mum used to go to Jenny Showels house. I have a brother Tony who lives in Salt Lake City USA, and a sister Wendy who is still in the Grove. Would be good for some memories from anyone who knows me.

The hill I whizzed down was called the Cukoo and my sledge could leap the brook. Bonfire night was great. Get as many bangers in the fire and run.... No health and safety etc. Carving hearts on the trees in Torkington Park. Silver Moon milk bar for a play on the jute box. Rosemary Clooney. The fair on Jubilee field.Rides on the Waltzer, the Cages, Dodgers, and roll a penny. Smoking my first Woodbine in the grotty toilets near the Sun pub.Placing a penny on the rail track, sailing in tin bath on the pond at Jacky W rights, arriving home soaking wet,my Dad giving me a swift clout on the head. Great school chums,and Hazel Grove was a wonderful village to live in.1936 to 1960

What about Warburtons motor cycles, Hazel Grove Records, Brindleys sweet shop at the Fiveways, the Flamingo Fish bar where we used to meet on our motor cycles in the late 70's, the old dog track behind where Carpet World is now, Grove Uniteds football pitch where Gordon Ford trucks was built & then knocked down, the Bee's Knees pub, Dillons News Agents, Bonfire Nights on the waste ground in Spring Gardens, the fountain outside the Medical Practice near Queens Road not to mention the best hill for skateboarding at Torky Park.

your right about the milk vending machine "blue grover" me and my mate use to call it the "iron cow" (sad name i know)it was located outside the shop that is right next door to norbury church, seem to recall it needing a bit of a kick now and then to get your drink out.
