Happy Days - a Memory of Wombwell.

Hi, I was born in Wombwell at my Grandparents home in Cemetary Rd.

My Grandad was the manager of the Co-op grocery shop on high st. George Woolston.

My mum was born in Wombwell and her brother.

What i remember and loved was , my Grandad had a party each christmas for his staff , and the Salvation Army used to come and play in the street. they would play Silent night for my Grandma.we'd stand and listen as the snow fell.

Grans always smelt of baking and always so full of love ,

I miss them so much. My Grandad died in 1963.and my Gran in 1977.

They will alway live in my heart. memories are more precious than gold .
