Lets hear some of your old memories then from in and around

Lets hear some of your old memories then from in and around worsop.

I remember walking to the Fruit & Vege shop next to the bingo place (A60) every saturday and being given sweets by the kind man who worked there. I also remember the shop cross from sherwood street school where i used to buy a 10p mix. The best place was the sweet shop cross from birklands school. The lady was so friendly and always had a smile on her face also see would let me of with money if i didn't have enough. Remember playing on the railway running for my life from on coming trains. Playing kurby with my football. Going to the miners welfare on monday night after paying my 20p to get in. How i miss the good old days.

Having my hair cut at Eddie Mosses, 2/6d ! Picking my Mam up from VG on my Bonnieville, Carelesses veg shop, calling in the "first shop" opposite sherwood st school for a penny arrow bar., the smell of coffee in Spencers doorway, visiting the Nurses at the Town Hall, Poyntons toy shop, Doctors next door to Poyntons, Vics woodyard ( before the a60 ripped its profitable way through the middle of Warsop), getting the slipper at hetts lane.
I can feel the floodgates threatening!

Oh, I remember all those things as well! The corner cafe. Poyntons toy shop and the fishing tackle shop next door, was it called Dibbles? Eddie moss, a local legend, he also sold something for the weekend, though never to me!

Threepenny mixes from the sweet shop opposite Sherwood school, sports mixture, penny bubblies, fruit salad, black jacks arrow bars. The nurses at the Town Hall, with National Dried Milk, orange juice and cod liver oil - yuk! Standing in the queue with classmates, waiting for our injections!

I remember waiting for buses to Church Warsop outside the chemist next to Woodheads and watching for the bus coming through that big bottle of blue liquid they had in the window.

My dad was a fireman and in the summer he used to send me out onto the garden to listen for the siren that sounded at the Town Hall when there was a fire - they didn't have alerters then!

Oldbg - my first boyfriend had a 650 Bonneville - nice bike!

Carnival, sometimes us older ones remember things from way back and forget more recent stuff. So come on refresh our memories with what childhood was like for you.

I remember everything was so much taller back then!

I remember a toy shop being on the corner of clumber street opposite don millars.

I got my remote controlled lorry with a yacht on its trailer from there. Took the yacht to the blue paddling pool on the carrs and it sank!

Can remember going into the VG with my mum and she would always get me a bag of those fish and chips biscuit snack things which I would eat on my way round and then she would pay for them at the end.

I remember the old bus station being an indoor market with a cafe at the top end. I think someone who worked there liked the song 'Montego Bay' because it was always playing on the jukebox.

Even worse, do you remember the bus station when it was a bus station, before it was split up into two bits? It went from York Terrace (now KayJays windows) through to Church Street, of course that was before the new road was built. Buses could go in one end and come out the other. I vaguely remember it!

I had no idea that Warsop had a bus station. And hasn't the A60 always been there?

The inner relief road went through about 1978/79, there used to be Metheringhams butchers and Tylers shoe shop and the A60 came into Warsop over Dawney Hill and down the High Street and around Spencers corner.
