Weaverham In The 1940,S - a Memory of Weaverham.
I have a similar tale to as someone also brought here from Liverpool in 1948 when my dad started work for the ICI in Lostock. We lived in Keepers Lane with a view over the Weaver Valley.
We spent lots of happy days in Owely Woods and Hazel Woods making dens brewing tea over an open fire with water from the stream. Hazel Woods was a special favourite as there were as you would expect, hazel trees, which I could do with now as we get squirrels in the garden. Also damson trees which I would collect the fruit and my mum would make pies. I would say thanks with a bunch of irises picked from beside the stream in Hazel Woods.
I went to the local school in Weaverham, I was 8 years old. There was quite a lot of bullying at school because the locals looked down on Scousers so you had a hard time if you couldn't stand up for yourself. The only teacher I can remember is the headmaster, that's because we used to call him the Mecon, from the Eagle comic. I did however find my first true love, her name was Glenys Farr. What became of Glenys?
We came back to Liverpool in 1951 and I eventually became an engineer and travelled the world.
Now retired I often think of Weaverham and what became of all the mates I used to roam the woods with, and Genys.
