Another delightful contact has
come to us via the website in the form of the following email
from Brian Stables who now lives in Canada:-
was just looking at your history of Tickhill when it
dawned upon me that I too am part of that history.
I became somewhat
nostalgic reading the reminiscences of people I grew up
Derek Brookfield and
I were 'Ink Monitors' at the 'big' school, we used to
dare each other to drink the foul muck!
John Brackenberry and
I used to steal the odd puff of an illicit cigarette
behind the boys lavatory.
Tom Beastall lived up
Wilsic rd, was it 'Stanley' House ?
Keith Nicholson and
Frank Fisher lived down Sunderland St and Ken Kimberly
was on Dadesley Rd.
I was born there in
1929 and left, for the army, in 1947.
The purpose of this
e-mail, [in case you are wondering!] is to say a
warm "Thank you" for making the effort to get stuff
like this on record.
The Stables family have a superb website
to which Brian has made his own contribution so if you

Tickhill, please click below, and the link will take you
