About Me

I lived in the george's Road area from birth to age 9, when in 1964 we moved to Reddish, as this area was due to be demolished.

I first lived on Longsight street before making the long distance move to Todd Street, just around the corner.

I have nothing but happy memories of this period of my life. Even though we lived in a two up two down no hot water and an outside toilet.

About Me

Went to Christ Church school 1955 - 1961. Always remember Miss Mottershead, and the headmaster Mr Gerratty (I think). I think my first year teacher was a Miss Redmill. My brother also attended Christ Church - Keith Jones,  from 1953-1959. Remember a girl in my class called Norma Gosling, also Alban Haslem, Ian Aitcheson. Never forget what a nice lady Miss Mottershead was.

About Me
Hi was at this school between 1968 and 1971. The headmaster at the time was a Mr Granger. We had to go into the church a couple of times a week. One of my teachers was Mr Pots and one was Miss Barnard, I can't remember the others. I loved attending this school and Have found memories, it's really sad that it's now gone along with the church..

About Me

Born in Hesketh St in 1953. All my siblings attended Christ church including sisters Sylvia, Ingrid, brothers Stephen and Jeffrey....Moved to Heaton Chapel later, but still attended Christ Church...Mr Garrity head, Miss Mottershead, Mr lomax, Mr Stafford, ....remember Mr Burgess who kept the coke heating going....Happy days....My Dad was Sammy Parkes a racecourse bookie, and sometimes we were rich...and sometimes we were not !!.... My brother Steve and I were in groups and the music business for years....We had various businesses as well over the years in Stockport including a Hi fi/electrical retailers in Hillgate, and a couple of betting shops....Now retired, but think a lot about the happier times of old Stockport and the characters I knew....Our only designer gear was a snake belt (if you were lucky) and we three brothers could get togged out for a tenner at Henry's store on Princess St, and still have enough for 3 bags of chips from the U.C.P.......Happy days !!!
