Hi Slim, I vaguely remember Sheila's Kitchen when we first moved to Cheylesmore but can't place it. I've found an article which suggests it may have become the Sonargaon, which is still there, but it seems like a different owner, unless it was sold to them as a going concern.

Can't say for certain, and don't know what number it was, but where the Sonargaon stands is about the right place.

NormK, someone may know one of the four sisters by their first names, Doris, Freda, and twins Irene & Lilian Cottom, now aged 77/75/73. It would be nice if someone knew her, as she went to both of the Cheylesmore schools till 1955. She has lived up here in Wigan with me for the past 56 years.

Dougie, ask her if she remembers Roxanne, Lorraine, Linda and Sheila, the last two are more of her time.

On 31st Aug 2016 9:28am, dougie said: I don't know the age of anyone posting about the Daventry Road and Cheylesmore but my wife lived there in the 40/50s, she has asked again if anyone remembers the playing area between the shops that they called the bumps, before they built the shops in the middle. If so and you played there anyone remember the Cottom's girls
Daventry Road's quite a long road, and divided in two by the shopping parade and Quinton Pool. Which part of Daventry Road did your wife come from?

Sorry she didn't live on Daventry Road but in the houses at the back of the shops she lived at 13 Cornelius Street, most of the children played on the waste land between the shops (called the Bumps) and across the road in the park that's if you could call it a park even in the 60s, Thank's for the names NormK but the wife can't remember any of them but it is along time ago Thumbs up they most have gone to the same schools Edited by member, 31st Aug 2016 8:58 pm

Morning Dougie, Those 'bumps', are they of any significance? Like underground ruins, you never know, although I should think they would have been excavated by now. Just curious, bumps could hide a multitude of ???????? Wave

Evening here now Dougie, My heart and soul are still in Coventry, but my 'soulmate' is no longer with me. What is it they say, 'You can take the girl out of Coventry, but not Coventry out of the girl'. How true that is. I hope you will be sending us some pictures of the town lights then come Christmas. Crikey, not long now. Wave

Just heard today that the Barclays Bank on Daventry Road is sadly closing on the 30th June 2017. It opened in 1966 as Martins Bank and then became a Barclays branch in 1969. To see old photos of the bank (when it was Martins Bank) see here. Edited by member, 2nd Apr 2017 9:40 pm
