Comments: Remember Mr Madders saying we would all be able to retire at 50 and robots would do all the work for us ? He lied ! Most of the high schools have now gone along with the green open spaces, those of us that grew up in 'Wivvy' pre 1980 probably got the best it had to offer. Happy happy times, I feel privileged I experienced it. What are you lot doing now ? Get in touch !

Comments: Not a football fan, this needs amending to allow the selection of Nil!! I've been reading through these pages and haven't come across any names I recognise, (except one, and he was my brother Peter's mate, George Chin), though I was only nine when my family left Wythenshawe, so maybe that's why. I remember living in a maisonette on Topfield Road until I was four, when we moved to Oatlands Road. I remember starting school at Poundswick Infants and being petrified! I was lucky in that the teachers were quite forward thinking really, and allowed me and my brother (two years older) to wander in and out of each other's classrooms, until I had settled in. My teacher was lovely - Miss, or Mrs Telling. Our mother used to pick us up for lunch every day. I remember sitting under the cherry blossom trees making daisy chains with friends, but sorry, can't remember any names! Headteacher was a dragon - Mrs Blackwell - she smacked me for being where I was supposed to be at the time! That injustice has stayed with me all my life!! Oldwood Juniors followed, where I remember some faces but not many names at all, except a few teachers; was in Miss Brewer's class (she had a rabbit hopping around the classroom! I thought it was fantastic!). She let us all choose the colour for the re-decorating; yellow, good brain colour!! My brother was in Miss Stuart's class when we came to leave in 1970 - only for her to turn up at my new school in New Mills, Derbyshire!! She was Mrs Leese then. Mr Myatt was the Headmaster, scary, but kind as I remember. I can remember another teacher, not mine, but I remember her anyway, Miss Murphy - she always scared me too! I vaguely remember a boy called Trevor, Roland??, girls Tracy?? There was a new girl joined, can't remember whether it was my class or not, but I remember playing with her in the playground - I was fascinated because she was the first black child I had been in such close proximity with, and was horrified to find people being unkind to her because of it. I think her name was Joanna?? Very pretty girl, with lovely, intricate braids in her hair. Like others on here, I too remember the country lanes, walking to what was Ringway Airport to meet our elder sister Frances, who was doing a hairdressing apprenticeship there. To think we used to climb and wait on a wooden gate into a field! I had two other sisters, Vanda and Sandra, and the baby of the family, Rayma (though there were two more siblings after her, in Derbyshire). I remember playing in the park near Poundswick Infants, somewhere down Stoneacres Rd,I think, but I can't see any sign of that now. Then there was the bigger park we used to wander off to, with the boating lake and Parkie (many a plaster and smell of Dettol!!), Castle Mills, Poundswick Pond, before the Forum Theatre was built - we used to go 'newting', invariably fell in!! My mother Grace used to work at Herons greengrocers on Minsterley Parade. I remember our older sisters taking us to the outdoor next to the pub, Cock of the North, on a Friday night, to get sweets! They used to take my brother and me to the cinema every now and again, the Forum I think, in Northenden??, and sometimes the Tatton. So many memories, and such freedom!! I've always been proud to say I'm from Wythenshawe. I think the tv series, 'Shameless' did it a lot of damage - there are too many who thought it was an accurate portrayal of the place. Perhaps it was in parts, I don't know, but I do know it didn't represent the whole of Wythwnshawe, at any time. I have driven round a few times, taking my children when they were younger - I was shocked to see the decline, but then I think that was why my parents moved us away. I have been back since and it looks as though it has had some investment in it. It's been fascinating reading others' accounts of life in Woodhouse Park, and how far flung everyone is now, quite literally all around the globe!! Many thanks for this.

Comments: Hi, this is my second time at putting my name on the Wythenshawe expats site. I was contacted recently as someone remembered the name and wondered if I was related to someone they remembered from childhood and it turned out it was my brother they remembered so I was happy to pass on their email to my brother. I married David Bronton who lived in Robinsbay Rd, in 1965 lived in Heald Green for 5yrs and 2yrs in Baguley before moving to Perth W.A. Have 3 children 5 grandchildren and couldn't imagine living anywhere else Perth is beautiful. If there is someone who remembers me from school (left school 1962) or from Ravenscar Cres I would love to hear from you.

Comments: We moved to Royalthorn Rd in 1959 from Bradford, Manchester 11.....I remember going to the youth club at St Columba's where me and my mates played table tennis & snooker..later I played football for St.John's Men's Club & St Elizabeth's who were based in Peel Hall...My earliest memories from St John's were my very 1st girlfriend Madeline Bell & then Mary Tickle...they were very sweet..and we played games like True Dare Kiss Command or Promise...it always got around to kissing the girls no matter which of these choices were made...for example...Is it true you are going to kiss Mary..that kinda innocent stuff..because we were only 10 or 11....My friends were Tommy O'Brien who lived on Alderue Ave....John Sullivan, Sean Toomey , Tony Lodge and Chris Yarwood....Tommy and John went to All Hallows while Chris attended St Bede's Grammer ..Tony went to St Greg's but as happens in life we lost touch when we migrated here back in 1981.I should really support Manchester City as my 1st cousin( my dad's sister's son) is Paul Power who most of you of my era would know played over 450 games for the Blues...So why did I support United..the story as told to us as kids was that my mum was a Utd fan, whereas dad was a City supporter..but he turned his allegiance to Utd to win her heart..and they were married in 1944...sadly both passed away manys ago now..I caught up with Paul who has just retired back in 2009..we had a big dinner in my honour would you believe near his local town in Cheshire...it was very nice catching up with all the family...Met my wife of 43 years Vivienne Millward(who is on here just below)..hi love..lol....at my work in Sale and as she says we have 4 kids and 8 grandkids.....I'm currently on long service leave from the postal service here until the end of March with a view to taking early retirement...that's if Viv and me don't kill each other 1st...we've never spent 24/7 together for so long...but alls well at the moment as it's only been a couple of days....If you know me I'd love to hear from you...:)

Comments: Just reading the guestbook brought back lots of memories of school friends past, and club activity in Manchester. Loved it. Many of my young days were spent in Wythenshawe Park, going to the fair, the batman disco, Royal Oak disco( which is now a Maccas sadly). Sunday night movies at the Forum trying to see if the guy you fancied was there (because everyone went there!!!!) City nightclubs, Twisted Wheel, St. Bernadettes where my friend got beaten up so we never went again! Hanging around Benchill for no other reason that the lad I fancied lived on Mottershead Road and I hoped he would come out! Then we went upmarket to the disco in Sale, started a 'proper' job, grew up , got married and emigrated. Now I have four kids and eight grandchildren, and have been married to same bloke for 43 years, and not a day goes by that some memory of the old place is mentioned.
