Hi Jay


I moved there in 1980 and moved away10 years later, but my mother still lived there and I visited her on a regular basis.


Back when I lived there, it was a nice place to live, the row of shops (now demolished) consisted of a fish and chip shop, Ron the barbers shop, a small supermarket, and a news agents. The pub at the back of Rickman Drive was called the Colwyn and that was still up and running.


The people I new were, Mark, Steven, Carl, Ian, Charlie, Gary and Martin Harwood, Michael, Adam, Sylvia, Johnny Kelly etc.


The drive is no longer the same as it was, Nash house had a couple of my mates living there, Lee and Mark, motorbike enthusiasts.
