My dad used to take me to charny on Saturday afternoons when I was about 4 yrs old back in 1963. He loved it and I loved the little toys he would buy me. I do have a vague memory of it but don't remember the area going. Was it all on Charnwood road?

Hi Tina,  Sorry to see you have got no further with your search.  Just a thought, but have you ever considered getting touch with the programme "Long Lost Families"?   I understand how frustrating it is.  I've got nowhere trying to find my father, although I've got even less than you to go on.  Out of curiosity I've just typed in your father's name on Ancestry, but apart from not knowing where he came from there were loads of men with the same name, which is as I expected.   Oh well, we just keep trying.   Best wishes, Janet

Well recall the old Troc cinema on the garage site.  In 1954 we had to form a military guard of honour from Glen Para Barracks on the steps to welcome various celebs attending the premiere outside London of the "Colditz Story" film. Over sixty years ago; where has all that time gone?  Troc pictures and pool gone, who'd have thought it?
