A Memory of Ardwick

I attended Ardwick secondary modern school for girls, many of my friends lived in Ardwick we would all walk to school together, on the way home hot vimto at the cafe so I got to know the area well. Of course we visited the Apollo cinema and the Hippodrome, then the Court School of Dancing in the Apollo building, Hyde Roadside chips from the chippy on the way home.
1964 till 1967 I worked at Union Street day nursery in Ardwick.

Hello, are you related to Diane Heaton who was at Ardwick Secondary 1961 onwards? she lived somewhere off Stockport Rd I think.

I also went to Court School of Dancing, saw The Beatles at The Apollo!
Great memories.
