    Hi there - I went to Connie Millingtons from around 1976 -1980. I used to attend the Latin & Ballroom class on a Saturday morning and I was aged about 10 then. I remember when Connie died and then school was taken over briefly by Jane, before someone called Iris took it over. I was part of the Millingtons Latin formation team...!

    From what I remember, Mandy went into nursing and Linda became a vet. To answer an earlier question, I had two dance dresses - one was white with orange frilly sleeves and a an orange frill around the skirt. The other was chocolate brown with lime green flowers......but it WAS the 70's!!! You may know me as Bernice Cantwell.

I do remember Connie telling me the story of one girl who was dancing in the modern formation team, whose net underskirt dropped to the floor,, showing her legs through the sheer top-skirt. Luckily, Connie said, she had fantastic legs ! This would probably have been in the 60's ... does your si... more >>

  • Re: Connie Millingtons by Michael McCarthy (Member 10242162) on 6-Nov-2009
    I used to attend Don Millington's dance classes on Walton Road in 1960/61/62. I remember his blonde wife, they used to win competitions.

    Later he relocated to his father's (Jack Millington) dance studio in Bootle because it was warmer.

    I danced with a tall blonde girl from Kirky called Pamela. She went to Skerry's College and moved away when she married in 1963.

  • Re: Connie Millingtons by Michael McCarthy (Member 10242162) on 10-Nov-2011
    I'd love to know what became of my old dance partner, Pamela Ellis, who lived in Quernmore Road Kirkby in the late 50's/early 60's. Don Millington was our dance teacher at the time.

Can anyone help?

Didn't keep in contact with Diane and haven't seen her since prize-giving day at Hillside. I had heard that Lynda married, but don't know any more. sorry if this hasn't been too helpful ...

    Sorry, didn't read the full message. I don't live far from 52 but I don't remember anybody called Summers and I have been here for 29 years. I coul ask some of the other neighbours who have been here for longer if you are still interested.

    Dr Flanagan lived on Moss Lane for many years and I believe his son took over the practice.

    I remember two brothers who lived in Litherland Road one was called Paddy but I can't remember the other one's name. They used to go to Saint Monica's church and one was a collector for the church.
