Boston Manor Park 1961 onwards by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 17-Jan-2017
What a wonderful place on summer evenings. All us teenagers, Lesley Nina Dina Jean Graham Susan. No M4 yet built. Any body remember?   
  • Re: Boston Manor Park 1961 onwards by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 21-Jan-2017
    Used to stand around the lake talking. Lesley Greenwood from near by Boston Gardens was there sometimes. After a while we would wander down to the tennis court. Outside of the park was a off licence where the M4 is on Boston Manor Road, there we would buy peanuts and crisps. Susan Geraghty from The Ride was also around. Really life seemed one long please in 1961.

    The park keeper was called Ted. He rode around on a bike. There was a bowling green and tennis. Of course there was Boston Manor House. The trolley bus went past the entrances later to be replaced by Routemaster. Also there was a nice little lake.

  • Re: St Thomas the Apostle Church Hanwell by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 16-Jan-2017
    I remember junior church at 1500hrs on Sundays around 1959. Also a library by the Lady Chapel.

    Mr White used to take a class. He worked as a clock keeper at Buckingham Palace. He was also a churchwarden. He used to serve at communion then teach. After he went home and was back for evensong. What dedication.

  • Re: St Thomas the Apostle Church Hanwell by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 21-Jan-2017
    Guild was in Bordeston School and Mr Meakin used to stoke the boiler for the central heating.

  • Re: St Thomas the Apostle Church Hanwell by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 25-Jan-2017
    One of the teachers at Guild was Mr Elliot who lived in Studley Grange road. He always gave a interesting talk with an aviation flavour. He worked for BEA. Dereck Carpenter was also a teacher, he went on to become a Cannon. There was also a youth club.

    John Bennet abd Dereck Carpenter were also teachers at guild.

    Every morning we had assembly in the hall. After this we started lessons.

  • Re: St marks school hanwell W7 by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 11-Jan-2017
    I remember Miss Pride used to hit your hand with a ruler if you did anything wrong. Teaching was not very good. Failed 11 plus. Went onto Bordeston where the teaching was even worse.

  • Re: St marks school hanwell W7 by Nick beard (Member 10309884) on 21-Jan-2017
    Mr Bean was the caretaker.

    There was a drinks machine on floor eight. Also there was the PUNCH ROOM with Power Samas machies operated by girls producing punch cards to feed all the revenue data into computers. By the door was a notice board with staff vacancy notices. Everybody wanted a job at the airport with a uniform if you were lucky.

Spiral Steps café in Southall in the 1960s by Motco (Member 10255946) on 25-Jul-2011
Does anyone recall this coffee bar/café on the High Street, opposite what was a cinema then bowling alley, just east of the junction with South Road/Lady Margaret Road. It was the only place I knew with a juke box full of jazz. A wonderful place to spend a lunch break from Southall Tech.

    I remember the Spiral Steps because opposite near the lights was a scooter shop with a large slot racing track in the back. Oh how I loved Southall. Used to buy ex jukebox records in the market. Yardbirds etc.
