So I was born in Birmingham in the 70s, raised in South Yardley on Graham Rd... Went to Redhill Rd school & Washwood Heath. We left Birmingham in 1987 to live in the US,  haven't been back to England at all & the Birmingham I only know as a kid, the one from the 70s & 80s is the only one I want to keep in my memory. It truly breaks my heart when I hear how awful of a place it is now ...

If I lived in Lincolnshire and got stuck behind those tractors everyday I'd end up packing up driving.

Hi All,
      I was born and brought up in Small Heath. I loved it but probably because I did not know anywhere better. A message from Hitler, which came with a bang, caused us to move to South Yardley. I still loved Brum and all my friends and relatives were here. Then married and we considered a move to Australia. I now regret our decision to stay as all our 4 children grew up in Birmingham. They are now all married and live in different parts of the country and are happy away from Birmingham.
       
Now the final blow has come and we have moved into a care home in Wolverhampton. I would dearly love to return to Birmingham  for the end but that is most unlikely. Despite what the politicians and the PC Brigade tell us Birmingham has deteriorated since the war. I despair to think what the future is likely to bring but at least my wife and I will be out of it as will our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Kellie If I was you I would believe what hear on TV or read in the newspapers or even on our Forum, because most of it is true. Just go through this thread and see how many members would move back to Brum. Believe me its not many.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Did you live in Somerville Road?     I went to Somerville Road School (1948-54) and lived just around the corner in Muntz Street.
