Hi all. I'm delighted to find this forum. I was born in 1961 in 231 Campbell buildings in my mum's bed as were my sister and brother. The eldest 2 brothers were born elsewhere. We moved when I was 8. We must have been posh as we had a bath in the kitchen ! My dad was an electrician at Waterloo station. I can remember Bertha and Kathleen who lived upstairs, the Nutman's I think they lived downstairs, aunty Millie lived further along the block and my best friend Debbie who was older than me lived opposite. There were 5 of us kids. Anthony, Colm, Sharon, Celine and Paschal. I remember learning to ride a bike in the square, playing knock down ginger and run outs. The penny apeny tray at perdoms and Dontbe grocer. We went to st Patrick's Catholic school in Cromwell road.

Hello my name is Ben Lynch and I lived at no 10 Campbell buildings with my parents
And my 2 siblings.
We were there during the early 1960s until my parents split up and as it was a railways flat we had to move. I have a really happy childhood and was getting into
All sorts!
It has been very nostalgic to read all the comments.
Now one of the main reason to email the group is that during our time at CB I was
Playing with a group of kids and jumped over the walk to retrieve a ball ....
I fell Down a hole and fell onto steel reinforcing units one of the other residents
Came over the fence to help me he was able to release my leg which was scewered
To the steels and undoubtably save my leg. So thank you whoever you are.
Thanks to you I was able to make a full recovery.
The rest of the time at Cb was less dangerous .....
Kind regards all

Hi Roger

I remember you, I think you may have been the year below. I had Jane Gascoigne in my year. My sister Frances was in your class, I think (I was Matthew back then). Others in my class were Paul Rutter, Kevin Fowl, Keith Mills, Mickey Callaghan, Steven King, Diane Bishop,

As you say, many memories
