Red or Blue Supporter: Manchester United
Comments: I arrived at Prinknash Rd aged around 5 years old in 1951!we were one of the first of many overspill families from manchester(levenshulme),to be alocated a brand new house!!,what excitment,I can still remember the sights and smells of those first few days,the whole place was still a building site,unmade roads,piles of sand,the smell of fresh laid tarmac and newly cut timber was every where,the perfect playground for a fearless child,I'm not sure what number Prinknash road we lived at 25or27? anyway the family next door were the `Valentines,` opposite lived the Kelly's and I also remember the Andrews and the Gimbles.I enrolled at St anthony's infants school on the the day it opend!the headmaster was a Mr Cain who scared the xxxx out of me!,and my first love was Miss lewis!,after failing the 'dumb plus' I went to 'All Hallows.My only memories of wythenshawe are childhood ones,as we moved back to manchester when I was about 12. MEMORIES, things I remember......the big street party in the avenue to celebrate the queens coronation (1953)I was 7,!! going for walks with my mom through the fields that surrounded us,farmer's fence posts made of wooden plane props!(the war ended 7 years ealier) the 'green hut'which was the tempory St anthony's church,and sometimes doubled as a cinema!walks to ringway airport,stopping at the off/licence for crisps and drinks,being frightend by huge vulcan bombers that often flew overhead and seemed to fill the sky,my first pair of steel rollerskates and using the local shopping precinct as my rink,special days out to wythenshawe park,(and the paddling pool) and sometimes even 'Belle View!.My mom and dad only died last year well into their eighties, back in Ireland. They told me many times how tough life was in those early days in Woodhousepark no work no transport and very little in way of benefits,but like many children I was shielded from all that and can only remember a wonderful childhood. Since those early days I have been,and worked all over the world,and guess what? I'm still working! and now living in beautiful shropshire,I would be delighted to hear from anyone who could add to my fading memory bank. John Beirne

Comments: blue always blue,moved to wythy aged 1 1949 left in 1964 but have very fond memories of the place and the people nothing much in wythy at first just pubs and churches.i remember going to the pictures at the forum and sometimes round the corner to the coronation(the bug hut)had to go to chorlton baths till the new ones were built,remember 1d hovis and 6d chips(between us)after swimming.the newall had a wooden shack as the outdoor.choice of shops terminus(greenbrow rd where the 101 turned round)noted for fieldings bakery and carters chippy also tuffley rd(greenbrow parade)andertons for school uniforms,sothersts sweet shop and thoms the chemists.most of all though the back fields where you could score a goal in the cup fnal plus knock the winning runs in a test match both at the same venue.just to the front of our house(and slightly to the right)was the croft where they built the labour club that must have a lot to answer for and oh for the taste of marco reas or grannelis ice cream.but most of all it was safe people knew each other and mucked in to help each other out i have lived in oldham for 44 yrs but still class myself a wythy lad,anyone who wishes to get in touch is welcome(as long as i dont owe you money in that case that is not my real name or e mail address ha ha) take care everyone bernie x

Comments: Not really into footie anymore.....although I stood on the terraces and chanted 'we are the champions' at Old Trafford in '68. Lived in Baguley, 52-66 then Peel Hall 66-74 when married Jug Jackson from Baguley and moved to shop in Levenshulme. Been halfway between Mcr & Liverpool for 32 years.(Don't time fly?!)Jug(Burnage Grammar) died in 1991 from cancer ( the world lost a good man) I remember loads about Wythenshawe-probably a bookful- so I won't go on about too much now. Just to say, it had a reputation as the biggest housing estate in Europe and with the highest juvenile crime rate(pro-rata?)the first may have been true but the second-if it was true-never affected me. I loved the place which I still occasionally re-visit because of my job. Immediate memory is thinking that the space which was to become the M56 had been left for us kids to play on!(including the drain pipes with their graffitti of couples' undying love!)and the fact that the flats on Wendon Road(and the similar ones near the 'Black Boy') didn't have security locks (which they do now)-they just had 'openings' where couples snogged and kids played hide n seek. We also thought there were playgrounds at the end of each block but if they were- they're full of parked cars now! Anyway no more rambling memories....would love to find Rosalind Chard who was a childhood friend in Baguley, she went to Poundswick grammar (63-68)& had a sister called Hazel. Any info please? PS thanks for a chance to ramble and Barry M in Australia if you read this- I've changed email address and lost yours!(Any info on John Bowdler?)

Comments: This popped up whilst trying to google a memory of a girl who was badly burned in the face whilst using matches to look into the petrol tank of a car abandoned in the car park of that big pub (The Peel Hall???) next to Peel Hall shops, on Peel Hall road (C.1973). Anyway, I was a boy scout at the church further along the same road (on the right going towards Simons Way), that's how I remember when I left Wythenshaw for sunny Timperley at the age of 12 (1975).

Comments: Hi again, It's almost a year ago now when I wrote my first comment, but nobody has replied, yet. I am looking for people who used to live near me like ----Janet and Diane Neville.---- They lived on Greenwood Road, or---Sean Dolan and Julie Mansfield---, we were in the same class. I left England with my parents to live in Germany in 1970. If you are any of these people I am looking for or you think you might know me, please get in touch. I hope I have more luck this time.

Comments: I left Wythenshawe then surname Dillon to marry Anthony WEBB-NAYLOR we split up in 1978 AND WAS THEN DIVORCED IN 1981. Their were 2 sons and one daughter who are now near to 40 years of age and 4 grandchildren who live far away but we meet now and then. I never found another partner or married but he did in 1981. We lost touch until my Sons married and that is the only contact that we have ever had since the break-up. I have stood on my own two feet and I am now so independant that it has become boring. So soon I will join a friendship club and that should solve the problem; I have been lucky with jobs over the years until I retired in 2006 and will now be looking out for a volunteering or charity work unpaid to pass the time and help others along the way. I came back again here in 2001 and it would be good to hear from anyone who remembers me you may e-mail me at paulinenaylor1@sky.com
