Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Hyde Lads Club Plaque 'Update'

Well Done

Photobucket

How good is this to see? I know many were worried this would not get replaced, but as promised by Councillor Philip Fitzpatrick it has... Thank you to all who got in touch about this... and a big thank you to Councillor Fitzpatrick for acting so swiftly on this, first he organised the clearing and safe removal of the broken brickwork and now true to his word, work was indeed started today to replace this fine memento of Hyde Lads Club.

Good - I'll take a look at it probably on Saturday.

Hello Gerald
I was glad to see they had not dragged their feet with this... by Saturday it should be all neat and tidy and the brass plaque that Dave saved by in place.
