Norma's Memories Of Hyde

Todays post is from Norma, 

I was born at 26 Hamnett St in 1941, My name then was Norma Sunderland and I attended Greenfield Street School until 1952 when I passed my 11th plus and went to Hyde County Grammar school until 1957. I was one of the last girls there as Astley grammar opened in, I think 1956.
I can remember crossing the old George Street on Donnybrook, to get to my first job at Dishman's chemist shop, where I worked just before my marriage in 1960. I also worked for a few weeks at the CPA factory, at the bottom end of George Street to earn extra money towards my wedding.

I married a policeman and became Norma Burch and moved to Chester. My parents were rehoused in Gee Cross in 1963. After living and working all over England I am happily retired from a long career in nursing and living with my present partner in Warrington. It would be nice to hear from anyone who remembers me.
