Hi All,

I'm new to this, but I lived at 62 New Close between 1960 and 1984.  My parents lived there until 2004.

Names remembered:

Guys
Reader's
Kelly's
Brooker's
Marney's
Ayres'
Rose's and Osborne's shops
Goodwins
Parrott's

Great old community who still collected for and attended my mother's funeral in 2004.

Great to hear so much about the place I grew up in and hope to hear more.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi
I lived at no. 86 New Close from 1956 - 1967 our house was in the circle oposite the pylon,next door to the Brookers.
I remember your Nan & Grandad's house , It was the one on the corner and It always seem to have runner beans growing up strings.
I moved to New Close from Colliers Wood when I was nine but I still went to the same school ( Fortescue)and I went past your Nan & Grandad's house every day on the way to and from school. I cut through the alley to Phipps Bridge road.
I remember Lofty more than anyone else, he sometimes came over to talk to my dad but thats about it.

People from New Close were looked down upon- but I have never known such a good community

Do you know anymore on the Brookers?!
