Memories of Aston

Happy Times

I lived on Rosedale Road and went to Aston Springwood School. I have good memories of my life there, my friends were; Josie Jones, Julie White, Linda Vardy, Norma Tomkins, Susan Edwards and Maralyn Davis. I moved to Cheshire in 1975 after getting married but my family still live around the Aston area. I have lots of happy memories of my life in Aston through the 60's & 70's.
