Some of the new housing north of Donegal Close in Canley. The nameplate reads 'Skylark Street'. With all the new housing being built in the area then surely it will put a strain on the immediate infrastructure.

There are some names there of people I knew/know though I lived at the other end of Canley, in a steel house. Some others on this forum probably have been in touch with you as well. You might like to read some posts about Canley I wrote for www.municipaldreams.com, they are still getting a lot of comments from former Canley kids. all the best to you, Ruth
Hi Ruth, just read your great posts on municipaldreams and the memories came flooding back. I had to visit the small shops on most days and remember Mr Perks, he had the biggest shop in the row. As a 7 or 8 year old, playing in the woods and over the fields (where WMG and the sports centre now stand) all the way to Westwood Heath Road, was such an adventure, going newting in the ponds. Also putting pennies on the railway line to get them flattened. Having to drink that horrible concentrated orange juice from the health clinic.

Hi Pamela, picking up threads having been away from the forum for a few years. Some of the names you mention were in the same class as me (Mr Rea’s) before I left in 1961. We lived on Charter Ave, by the island, so not far from you. What years were you at Henry Parkes?

On 22nd Nov 2015 8:58pm, RLCherrington said: I thought the Methodist hall was down at Prior Deram Walk? I always thought it was the Gospel Hall in my day which might have been after '62. The interesting thing for me is that the pubs and the Canley Club came before the churches and Canley was once described by a Bishop (or someone similar) as a 'godless' estate with many lost souls drifting aimlessly…..
Hi Ruth, I can confirm that it was "Charter Gospel Hall, Canley" as I have just dug out the bible I was given for attendance in 1959, signed by T Foster (superintendent) and H Hollingsworth (teacher) Post moved from topic Coventry Pubs on 6th Nov 2020 5:49 pm

At Henry Parkes school, there was a girl called Daphne Bramble who was a little older than me. What a footballer she was. Anyone remember her?
