MONTHLY SOCIAL GATHERINGS
We meet on the last thursday of each month at
The Millennium Centre
Childwall Valley Road
We start at 7 p.m. and finish by 9 p.m.
We have free tea & coffee and there is a bar in the centre for those requiring something colder or stronger!
We usually have several photo albums, maps of then & now & our new model prefab on display. It’s a chance to meet friends & neighbours old & new and to share reminiscences.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON
The Christmas Party is on thursday 12th December from 7pm. Tickets are £3.50 and can be bought on the door. There will be a buffet & refreshments
On 13th November Belle Vale Shopping Centre celebrated it’s 40th birthday. The Centre Manager Paul Wilson & his team had asked the people of the area to share their memories of their life spent in Belle Vale & many of our Prefabbers made contributions.
There were many familiar faces in the crowd enjoying the finished display which was also attended by Ken Dodd. Everyone enjoyed the day & there is now some serious history on the Sopping Centre wall for all to see.
Pictures below show Prefabber Kathy McDonald talking to Ken Dodd after presenting him with a copy of one of our books & our chairman Tony Harrison who is also a past manager of Belle Vale Shopping Centre
We have recently learned that Glasgow had prefabs very similar to ours & a model is on show in the city.
We have managed to obtain this photograph
Model on display in Glasgow of the same type as those in Belle Vale
This picture was taken circa 1959-60 at Lister drive waiting for Gateacre Comp. to be completed. Some of those shown are J.Wood, T Marsland, John Allen, Denis Sowler, Miss Roberts & Ray Kayll who supplied this photograph.
If you recognise yourself, or anyone else in this picture let us know!
