Good Old Days In Woodlands - a Memory of Woodlands.
I came to live in Woodlands in 1945 and attended the infants school which was close to where I lived, at 75 The Park. Aged 8 I then went to Adwick Junior School, our teacher was Mr Bryant and the headmaster was Mr Mellor, from then I went to Sir Percy Jackson Grammar School leaving there in 1957. The Park was a lovely place to live right on the doorstep and was a wonderful play area, combining that with the woods we had a whale of a time. My mates were Colin Haslam, Brian Maskerry, Peter Lough, Gary Gibson and the notorious Roy Whitehead. When old enough went to watch Donny Rovers to see the likes of Alick Jeffery, Peter Docherty, Harry Gregg, Ray Harrison and the funny man himself, Charlie Williams, crowds of well over 25,000. I left Woodlands in 1960 to go into the RAF. I still have two sisters; one lives in Thorne, the other Scawsby, never did go back to live there but have visited a few times, no colliery now. If anyone has memories would be pleased to share them
