Sad news for all us blue men peter at the passing of sammy pavis one of our best.

Sad news indeed. Seen him at Windsor a few months ago and he didnít look well. Sammy was a good footballer, snooker player and bowler. He was a very nice person to speak to.

Colin,Silvia was Sammy's sister in law. She was a good singer sang in most of the clubs. She is also billy millens cousin.

Sylvia was married to Brian Pavis. Brian passed away a few years ago.

Yes Jimmy.  So many memories.  The arches in every street, flags, buntings and bonfires.  The grown ups out sitting on chairs around the bonfires keeping an eye on things.  Happy days,  Happy memories.  I would love love to jump in to an old photograph and be back there with the people we knew then

Thanks for that james that was great. The sandy row parade was a church parade I think it was the Broadway prespreterian church parade which was always well attended and drew large crowds. I had forgotten how big the 12th parade was in those days even in the rain the crowds were huge.

HI James brilliant it's not like that now I wasn't even old enough even to walk then They keep saying it's because of people moving house's and leaving district's    and people going on hoildays before the 12th it used to be hoildays after the 12th            regards Colin
