    I used to live in Hart View, Trimdon Village and we used to have Boyne Farm next to Tremaduna Rest Home. I have 2 Aunt’s still live in the Village and 1 lives at the Grange. Older brother Bob lives at the Grange and worked at The TMS as a fitter until it closed. I left Trimdon in 93′ moving to York, worked at John Smith’s Brewery Tadcaster before re-locating to Edinburgh in 2001. Last in the Village club at my niece’s 18th birthday party daughter of my brother John who now lives in Aycliffe. Would be interested in hearing from anyone who remembers me, names come to mind Alan Athey, Jeff Britton, David Stewart, Derek Robinson, Steven Henney. would be great to hear how we have all faired now we’ve past the magic age of fifty, drop me an email. all the best

    Love your web site it brings back a lot of memories. My mother lived in Wyngate Drive as a child (Josephine Bracey Nee Roll) until she married my dad Philip Bracey during the war. We then lived at 29 Gimson Rd, moving to Wigston in 1960. As kids we were all over the place, Fosse Park, Fosse cinema, Western park. Up and down the Hinckley Rd into town and all around the roads between Gimson rd. and Kirby rd. My kids now adults don't believe me when I tell them we had a Guy Fawkes bonfire on the middle of the road where Neville Rd meets Denton St. Your site has inspired me to do something I've been meaning to do for years, spend a few days finding out about the Leicester I missed as a child. Thanks again for your work and all the best for the future
