Hi
My Aunt Nancy, worked at Forums Rd, and my Grandad worked as a night watchman at Forums Rd. His name was John Henry Harwood. Anybody remember them? They use to live on Norman Rd Accocks Green. My Granmother use to arrange visits during the war to see children who were evacuated. She continued to arrange day trips for her neighbours and friends by collecting old newspapers for the evening mail. Anybody remember her? her name was Maude Harwood.

My Nan and Grandad both worked at Lucas , Grandad was at Formans Rd. Their names were Charlie and Ruth May and were also from Acocks Green. 77 Francis Rd. I grew up in Francis Rd too. I will ask my mother Doreen for you. She was born 22 Nov 1940 (terrible day for having a baby). Her first job when she left school was also at Lucas's. And I will look for some of Grandads photos and get back to you. Cheers Barbara
