The two recent posts deleted by a Moderator are disgraceful and should not be taken by any new member - whom we warmly welcome - as typical of the attitudes and spirit prevalent within the Forum. They make accusations of bias on the part of individual members of the Moderating Team which I know for a fact, having been a Moderator for over a decade, are entirely unfounded. And take absolutely no account of the way that the present Team do their best to keep this show on the road and make the Forum an informative, orderly and COURTEOUS place to be. Members who feel this way may well find it useful to refresh their memory of the Forum rules, to which we all are subject. And to look out for a further statement on this matter.

Yes , well said Chris.
I have been a Moderator on here for over 16 years and we have the most wonderful members and an Admin team that work very hard to make this forum one that people enjoy using.
No racist ,sexism,politics etc and any offensive posts are removed immediately.
The majority of our members get very great pleasure from browsing and posting on the various threads and it has always been a sorrow to me that just once in a while someone is so very sad that they have to make such nasty remarks to gain a bit of attention.

I was born in Lordswood Maternity Home, Harborne, and lived in Anderton Street, Ladywood, whilst my Dad was serving in the Fleet Air Arm in Korea. We moved to Elgin in Scotland when the war ended and then briefly lived in Cotteridge when Dad finished his service. Then back to Ladywood at the Sandpits and the Family business and finally ended up, and grew up in Grosvenor Road, Handsworth.

I was born in Blandford Road which is now Quinton B32 but the houses were built in 1936 which at that time was in the Harborne parish until the boundaries were changed years later. I was Baptised and married in St Peter's Church, Harborne.
I attended Woodhouse Road Junior and Infant School and Station Road Secondary Modern School. After marrying, moved to Cole Valley Road, Hall Green and upon retiring moved to Paignton, Devon.

Hi Lyn all I can remember is if you came out of halfway house turn to the left walk to the end of the road turn left as you look down the road there was a bridge that went from one building to a building on the opposite side I don't know the name of the road I think it was hockey Brook I think the bus garage was just around the corner that's all l remember.

Sounds like you lived in Nursery Rd. The left turn would have been into Hunters Road. There was a bridge there;with a clock if I remember correctly. I believe the bus depot was in Heaton Street.
