When I joined the facebook group:
St Ann’s Well Road Pre Demolition (1970)
I couldn't believe what I saw---------Places I’d forgotten
came to life once more
The Parks, Police Station, Trotts, Ayres, Ted Bullocks, Flo Woods, all the laughs
Central Market, Cavo and Empress, more shops, and Slipper Baths
BLIMEY, they've all had a mention
Like the Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts
All these lovely memories, we keep on bringing them out
Mr Salt, Mrs Hayes -----if they saw this site they would be amazed
OH...The houses have gone, the Schools have gone
and the Churches where we prayed
Sycamore and Coppice Rec, Remember how we played?
Scrumping up the Allotments, swigging water from a tap
Goose Fair, Bonfire Night?? collecting rubbish, remember that!!
We didn't have loads of money, it don’t buy Happiness they say
We had manners, caring, and kindness,
Drilled into us day after day
Friends and Neighbours, Our Community spirit, money couldn't buy
St Ann’s Well Road will always live on
This Site won’t let it die
So THANKS for all the memories, there seems to be plenty
We were All so blessed to have lived, or live in dear old SENTY!!
