About Me

I've lived on the Suburbs since I was born...Tis a long time ago now lol!

 

I've spent many happy years here, and loved participating in the Rose Queen and Flower Show as a kid :cool: I still attend the Rose Queen ceremony every year (mostly due to my mums continued contribution and insistence!).  This year (2009) it will be 20 years since I was the Rose Queen, as I was the 80th Queen, believe it or not :ohmy:

About Me

my gran used to live at 7 the croft - wyn richards. I used to visit almost every summer and I had great times and I've got good memories. I moved away from oldham but I moved back in 88 and then away again when I went to university in nottingham (93).

 people I used to knock about with - chris horrocks, benjamin and his brother dom, david whos mother and father were teachers and the mellors.

 I remember carrie but I bet she doesn't remember me....lol.

 I currently live in suffolk, I'm married and I have one son (more than enough lol).

 Suffolk is great but I can honestly say that I miss oldham a great deal, even if its not as good as it was.

 

does anyone remember walking down hollins road, stopping off at the sweet shop near the brit and then on to the roxy....haha

About Me

I moved to Green Lane number 58 when I was 4 in 1938 and lived there until 1961. My parents Eric and Violet Bailey stayed till 1970.

My sister who was a year older than me was called June.

We loved being in the Rose Queen and had lots of friends in it too. Two of my friends I am still in touch with today and see each other regularly; they are Eric Flint from Croft Brow and Thomas Wilkinson from Rising Lane Close.

I will try to upload some photos from our early days in The Suburbs.

About Me

I came to live in the Garden Suburb at the age of two in 1934, first at No 22 and then in 1936 at No 18a Meadow Lane. My grandparents Mr & Mrs Jessop lived at No 4 Croft Brow in the 1920's and 1930's before moving to "Brentwood" Middle Gate until 1942.

Both my sister (Eileen) and myself took part in the Rose Queen ceremonies from an early age and my sister was the Rose Queen in 1941 when I was a Herald! My father was also the President the same year.

My mother and father left the Suburb in 1963 to live on Anglesey.

I left in 1957 first to live in Bolton and for the last 8 years in Southport.

About Me
My parents moved to 4 Link Lane in 1983 and still live there with my brother, opposite my aunty at number 3 which was my grandparents house. My uncle also lives just down the road so we are a pretty close family! I was born in 1984 and grew up on the Suburbs, going to Lyndhurst and then Hulme before Leeds University studying IT and accountancy. I used to go to the Christmas parties at the pavilion every year and we used to take part in the Suburbs treasure hunts, they were great! I now live 5 mins away in Bardsley with my husband and come round to see my family every week.
