“I was born in 1959 at 22 Coniston Drive. I was born in the house – the midwife had been but she left again and I was born just after she left!

I live in a flat on Coniston Drive now and I used to play in the same flat when I was a kid. I sleep in the bedroom where I used to play! On the other side there was a park where we used to knock about. As kids at bonfire night our parents made toffee apples and treacle toffee. We used to hang about Lakeland Court where the toilets were in the 70’s. We used to play knock-a-door run and the neighbours used to chase us with a mop”
