Memories Of The Queen! - a Memory of Wheatley Hill.
I remember the Queen riding through Wheatly Hill and the flag waving.it was 1960 so I was 4at the time.i remember trudging through the snow along a main street to go to school,this must have been Wheatley Hill school and I remebr the name Mrs Hartnell ?? Perhaps she was my teacher.i also remember sitting in the school hall I think listening to 'watch with mother"? So many memories have been flooding back,ILived at 5 Dalton Terrace,I remember living on a bank. Baldeseras !..going there for sweets ...my nana lived in Wheatley Hill too,she was named Harriet Tompson, my mum was Jenny Vincent,married to Ted Vincent,a miner. They had 5 children,4 boys and myself.
We moved to Stoke on Trent when I was 10 in 1966. I sill live here but regard Durham as 'home".
I am happy to share
My memories with anyone out there from Wheatley Hill...
