Postby Joan » Sun Apr 08, 2007 7:32 pm

I have just found this forum and haven't had time to go through it properly yet but i am well chuffed about all the memories and stuff. I was born on King Road in 1950 and the name then was BOOTH. I was a bellringer, church youth club goer and went to Manor. My brothers were Reg and John Hallam. Me mam was Freda Booth.

Does anyone remember Hooley's at Warsop Windmill?

I will be back!!

Hi Joan, love old memories. I'm about the same age as you and didn't live too far away, but i can't remember you. I was going to say your name dosn't ring a bell but from your post it obviously did :D
You went to a different school and i didn't go to the "Big Church"

Hi Joan. When you say Hooleys at the Windmill, was that the little sweet shop, like a shed?

Yes it was and it was open on Sunday afternoons. We moved from King Road 1954 ish ane went to live on the posh new council estate up Sherwood Street.

For the first time a bathroom and an indoor loo. What luxury!!!! :P

1957, I started Sherwood Street Juniors and I think my first teacher.s name was Mrs Riley. She was strict and I was scared of her.

I remember Mrs Riley at Sherwood Street. I started there in 1962. She must have mellowed by the time she taught me because I thought she was quite sweet. :lol:

I don't remember Hooley's though, so maybe that was a year or two before my time.

You didn't miss anything, Caz. It was a shed on the triangle of land opposite the entrance to Bowrings yard. It was like a little lane that cut through between the Warsop and Woodhouse roads. I can remember buying bottles of pop there when I went out on my bike. I think it just sold drinks and sweets.

I think you missed lots. We didn't have much money for sweets and so it was a real treat to be allowed to walk all the way up to Hooley's clutching a threepenny bit and taking ages to choose - an adventure of a sorts cos it was a long walk (but safe) for us littluns for just rewards. My brothers remembered the little shop and my youngest brother who isn't far off 70, forgive me bro, can remember he did it as a child. - paper round money well a little of it cos mam had to have most of it.

I was born on Sycamore Street at Church Warsop and I remember Hunts shop just down the road from us. I used to love going there for coloured ice cream. That was in the late fifties but I seem to think rationing was only just finishing.

There was also a sweet shop across the road from Sherwood Street school. Did it change into a hairdressers, or is it now a house? It had a tarmacced area in front of it where all the other houses had gardens.

I used to go to the very same sweet shop .. it was called Clements but we all called it Harry's.
Still see Harry walking around Warsop from time to time. The shop was very much like Arkwrights from open All hours as I recall :lol: !
