I remember it well. My Mum used to call at Metheringhams on our way to my Grandma's and buy a milk loaf, some pork dripping and roast pork, then we'd make sandwiches when we got there. Delicious!

The bakery was later bought by Brightman and Geeson and then Len and dot Blower.

Ben Jones also had a couple of shops in Warsop, they sold school uniforms!

Talking on another thread just made me think of something we used to do when we had school milk. We used to take the tops of carefully to keep their shape and flick them in our fingers to make them fly like frizby's.

Remember the days of doorstep milk, in freezing weather the foil top would be perched on an inch of frozen milk above the bottle.

Does anyone remember the milkman who delivered by horse - Monty, I think that was the horses name! He had his business on Sherwood street and I vaguely remember the milk being ladled from churns - though I must have only been three years old.

I left Warsop in 1977 and remember being upset because I thought the A60 ruined Warsop. I still think it splits the place.

Ruth - I remember your Dad's tropical fish. I thought they were fascinating. If I remember correctly, he donated some to Sherwood school when you and I were pupils there. I can't remember which class but it was downstairs so it must have been either our first or second year there. Possibly Miss Pattle's class.

I remember getting to school one morning and one of the guppies was having babies. I got out of assembly by volunteering to count them as they were being born.

the bus station you may be talking about was bakers busses it was located between the chemist shop and freddie woodheads shop I think it was still there up to when I left warsop in '62

I can remember the icecream carts one was Manfredies and the other was Whites; Ada White was my mums cousin.

The Strand Cinema became a wrestling venue then bingo.

Chadwicks had their paper shop on Woods St, Greens had theirs at the bottom of Dawney Hill how many of you did paper rounds?

Thank you for the film footage nice memories I do like the ones with Spencers as I did work there from '59-'62

old memories

Postby ruth » Wed May 03, 2006 1:03 pm

I can remember Whites ice cream van. It was a tiny little thing and if my memory is correct it only had three wheels. The icecream lady always wore a white coat and i think she used red lipstick alot. We used to buy a round choc ice on a stick from her nearly everyday they were delishious.
We always called it proper ice cream not like that fluffy stuff you would get off Mr Sofftie. :lol:

I remember Mr Softie, I used to spend ages choosing what icecream I wanted, normally I would have one of those muti coloured rockets or a hanuted house or sometime If I had been a really good boy I could have a 99 with a flake. Its strange to think the lollies they sold only cost 7pence or 8 pence with choc Ices about 15pence...just look what inflation has done..Bring back the halfpenny thats what I say

Talking about ice cream. We used to go out with a dish to get filled with ice cream to go with our fruit for Sunday tea.

What happend to wafers? Do they still have them? When you licked the ice cream from the middle of a wafer, you had to be careful not to cut your tongue on the crisp wafer and by the time you got to the last bit the wafer had gone all soggy.

Remember the wafers you got with one thin wafer and one thick one covered in chocolate?

I can remember the red and green buses ... they were Trent buses if I remember rightly.

I also remember a purple and white one ... Rainworth Travel.

Mansfield and District had the green buses, East Midland had a cream coloured bus with some red on it, the two companies then merged and all the buses became green.

Trent have always had red buses though I do not remmeber them operating in Warsop, there used to be Blue Buses in Mansfield which were Midland General and these merged with Trent traction.

Yes I can, the one where the fire station is was Albert Bowrings, the one next to it now where the Willows are was Syd Bowrings and the one over the road on the corner of Burns Lane now where Oak garage is was Benny Vincents.
Me slow??? I get up in the morning with nothing to do and go to bed at night with half of it done.
