  • Could well be Victoria Street as that is Ian and Kath Boswell chairman of the Victoria Neighbourhood Council, set up by residents on Princes, Moor and Viccy Streets to get things done when people cared about their community. Meetings were held in Moor Lane community centre and it held events etc for us kids and adults alike. I think Don Hales later Councillor Hales was the first chairman. I grew up on Prinno,what a great place to grow up but when I wander up there now it looks awful. All the lovely old people’s flats gone, Mrs Hilton was warden and of course the once largest social club in town, The Brickyard Club (Victoria Social Club) long long gone.

  • The corner door entrance tells me it is the old Platt’s Post Office at the top of Old Victoria Street, Mansfield…Used by all and sundry from the surrounding areas… Mr. Platt was a small plump man with glasses who ran the Post Office with his wife, a taller lady who used to work behind a wire fronted cubicle.. I believe Mr Platt looked after the papers’ side of the business. In my younger days, the shop was always busy.. It dealt with much of the National Savings Certificates that were so necessary during the war…Under the two large windows either side of the corner door were several wired fasteners that displayed the news posters…across from the Post Office was spare ground that the Salvation Army built their new Citadel, if that is the right word ?..
