10 years!? seems like yesterday.Time seems to fly by quicker the older one gets.
i posted a message so long ago to her,GG and I actually met around
70 plus years ago.
We lived on Timperley Rd and next door lived the Buckleys.One day a girl was babysitting her brothers young  (very young)baby.The baby was crying for some reason and the young girl was having no success in pacifying  the baby.My mam having 5 children at that time ,stepped in.
Got a boiled sweet (fruit drop) tied it in a hanky and let the baby suck it.
It worked.
GG happened to be the baby sitter and as she remembered,I was the little chubby boy from next door.
This was her memory which jogged mine.It must have been the early 40's.

Well it's been quite a long time since I visited this site. This morning brought back a lot of memories for me from this forum, so I decided it was time to log in and have a browse and read what's been happening.
Today you see is 10 years since my Mum 💖, Groovin Granny, passed away.
All of you here gave her so much joy in the sharing of her younger days.
Many people still contact me for the link to her memoirs here on the site.
Thanks again to Martin Clark for putting them all together. 💖

Hi eggstoocool02 - it's nice to hear from you again. Wow 10 years - I can can't believe it! I sometimes think of your Mum when I'm going through these posts because I miss the kind of fascinating stories and memories that she gave us and there are very few now who can do that. Keep in touch with us.

I was born on Lees Road, Hurst.
Mum and Dad bought a little house in Ashton on Glebe street, just off Penny Meadow, then when I was 5 we moved to Hartshead Ave in Smallshaw. Lived there till 1971 when we moved to Australia

There is a bit of discussion currently on Facebook Page "The Tameside Hangout" as to whether or not The Roxy at Hurst Cross was a club of some kind in between being a cinema and a bingo hall.
Does anyone here know if this was the case and what the club was called?
I can't imagine it would have been there long, as the last movie played in July 1960, and my mum worked at the bingo late 60s. I also seem to remember the seating in the bingo was like seating in a cinema.
