I have posted in the Lancashire forum as well because I live about 12 miles from Manchester (Heywood), but I was born and bred in Manchester. πŸ™‚

RE: Hello fellow Mancunians

Hello againPoppet

I live in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, but was also born and bred in Manchester (Hulme). I love going on the Manchester Libraries Website, and looking at photos of all the old streets that I remember. If you haven't seen it its [link= http://www.images.manchester.gov.uk/ ]http://www.images.manchester.gov.uk/[/link]

Take care

Ah, I believe that's not too far away from me.:) Saying that I have absolutely no sense of direction or distance it's just that I've heard of it and know it's somewhere around here!!!! [sm=scratchchin.gif]

Hi Aqua blue
I lived in Collyhurst until I was 12 then we moved to Heywood - out to the country!;)

Hi Kath
Fancy that, you lived in Heywood. I moved here when I was 12 onto Darnhill, then got married and moved to Rochdale, then moved back to Heywood in 1978. I live in Hopwood now, do you know it? Whereabouts did you live? If you visit Heywood again you'll have to let me know and you can come round for coffee. πŸ™‚

Wow! Ive never been in the regional area before - its interesting to see names of places i know so well!

I live in chorlton just now, but lived in bury for 4 years before that and Ramsbottom before that, which i loved... (prior to that was in native scotland).

Must say i love living in Chorlton - its a great place!

Feels like a smaller world in here now!

even though...um....its been almost a year since anyone posted in here...

oh well

Hi Everyone,
just found this thread (topic?)... I was born in Harpurhey, grew up in Newton Heath and Failsworth, spent a bit of time in Hulme, Oldham, Levenshulme, Gorton, Fallowfield, and Openshaw before moving to my current home in Swinton. Nice to hear some of the places I know mentioned!!!

Hey Elemy - nice to see a fellow Manc still around...

you've been around town, eh? :p

Used to work in Newton Heath! just off Droylsden road at the now-converted Newton Silk Mill...worked there for 5 years :021:

See you're fairly new, so welcome to HP - hope you're enjoying it

Hey everyone!

I moved to Manchester back in 2003, and was initially living in Urmston. Then moved to Whitefield for about 3 years and am now currently residing in West Didsbury - which is really lovely, despite the pretentious atmosphere.
I really like Chorlton, just up the road, for it's boho and friendly nature - should really venture up there more often, you gotta love Unicorn!

Anyone who ever comes on this thread up for a therapy swap??

Hi Pinga,
Do you realise it's 5 months since anyone posted on this thread? and up to now none of them are on here tonight!
I also lived in Whitefield for a short time, tho' born in Stockport.
Are any of the previous 'posters' still coming on HP?

Hi Treacle,

Yeah, I think that appears to be a running theme from what I read throughout the thread. Though sometimes just posting something random bumps the thread back into action (in theory). I think I've seen a few of the others posting on here in other threads... but then again, I haven't been on here that often since I joined up! Terrible!

Wow, another Whitefield veteran! I lived there between the ages of 19 to 23, and it's not a place where I had too much fun to be honest - was quite happy to leave for somewhere a bit more 'happening'... does that mean I've sold out?? hahaha

Where do you live now then? I suspect you've already posted it on here, but haven't read the thread back. And what therapies do you practice?

WHOAH beccajayne! two babies and so determined? GOOD FOR YOU!!!
You've go the world at your feet if you want it.
Why aren't you going to Bury college - it must be closer for you? and have you asked about grants etc? (or am I interfering-sorry)

Good luck!:)

Oh and to add to the theme, I was born and raised in salford, doing my holistic therapies in chorlton, go shopping in bury, attend a gym in whitefield, worked in swinton and had my babies in crumpsal!!

Hello everyone!

Well I'm originally a Devonshire lass, but have lived all over the place. Manchester(ish) places have included Stockport, Disley, West Didsbury, Whitefield and currently Chorlton which I'm finding to be a lovely place.

I'm practicing acupuncture in Chorlton and volunteering 2 days a week at the Creative Living Centre in Prestwich.

I'm also interested in doing therapy swaps so feel free to get to get in touch over that or if anyone has any questions about acupuncture.

Festive greetings!

Jenny
