Life on The Wimpey Estate

8 Manor Court Road. I used to live there as a child, up to the time shortly before my mum died. We had moved to Carr Vale by then. I always remember Auntie Elaine next door and that the kids all called me Mister Softie because when the ice cream man came and played his jingle I always went running into the street, wanting an ice cream. I also used to have to walk across Castle Fields every day to go to school in Carr Vale. Great in the summer but it wasn't so good in the snow!
