Below are some lovely memories from Jacqueline Ridgway.
"Hi, I was looking on the blog and reading about the green cabins on Werneth Low, I remember going up to the cabins when I was a little girl with my Father John Holt and Mother Margaret Holt also my Grandmother Margaret Holt(nee Winterbotham) and my father’s Auntie Elsie Denerley(nee Winterbotham). We had picnics there with strawberries and we used to go up to Windy Harbour Farm for milk and cream, Dad would go to the river and fish".
Hydes Tea Rooms Windy Harbour.
"Elsie Denerley lived in Bank Street at the tripe dressing business and we used to go and visit, there were big stone vats with tripe in,also they kept chickens at the back.
When I was 15 I worked at Fletcher Miller’s in the office and later it became Castrol, it was a good place to work and I still keep in touch with people I worked with.
Saturdays were good as we would go and watch them making Godley Rock in the market Hall,also there was a house in Godley where you could buy it ".
"The Ritz was a haven for romance and we loved to go to the pictures, but when we were younger we used to go to the Hippodrome on Saturday morning this would give the mothers a break and we would buy sweets from the shop next door.
Does anyone remember the shop lower down from the Hippodrome ,where the bus station is now, it used to have great blocks of salt at the front door".
Hyde Park Bandstand 1960's
"Sunday after church services lots of people used to gather in Hyde Park and listen to the Band and then a visit to Meschias.
