In the late 50′s I was in a skiffle group called the “Dingle Dices” with Dougie Meakin, John Mahoney,Tony Evans. As time progressed we new Skiffle had had it’s day. Dougie wanted to form a proper Beat Group. We were all working now where as before we used improvised instruments’ Dougie’s Dad A;lbert’ even made his son a Guitar from a Kit! John Mahoney was a wizard in electrics self taught. He would make amplifiers out of old wireless case’s and even made his parents a stereo unit from an old cabinet. gas buddy It was proposed that we all take out a hire purchase agreement with Hessy’s in town and buy the necessary instruments. Seeing asI had been the washboard player

I had moved over to 1 ‘ yes 1′ Snare Drum. I was at the time an apprentice in Dysons earning around £3.00. per/week. There was no way I could get hire purchase let alone afford it, So my very short band career came to an end. Soon after The Group became quite known in Liverpool called the Mindbenders they had to alter this name as there was another group on the scene at that time which were hughlie popular. It was at this time I think’ when George joined the group as Base Player. They made one appearence on Ready Steady Go! with a Bob Dylan Number. Afterwards I heard that George had indeed Joined the Merseybeats.

Hi Roy Hall. My name is Ron Egerton. I was born at 74 Hurry Street L 8 IN 1941. I also went to Mathew Arnold School and onto Dingle Vale School. When I was in my early teens I started in a skiffle group with Gerry Marsden and his brother Freddy and another bloke can’t remember his name. b games unblocked My mam went to Frank Hessey’s and bought me a guitar good one paid £17.10 shillings on the spread. I think it was called a Zenith chello type. I packed in with the group and my mam sold the guitar to Gerry Marsden via his mam. My Mam and his mam were friends.

From my school day memories I can remember a couple of teachers one from Mathew Arnold called Makin and 2 from Dingle Vale gym teacher called Gerry Dawson great guy and one little …… called Hoole thiscguy stood at the school gate with a cane down the leg of his trousers and if you misted the whistle at start of school out came the cane and he would wack every one who was late. Any way Roy I could go on except to say it’s been great sorcing this page Good luck I.M 74 YRS OLD NOW

Whenwe wereat Matthew Arnold School they organised a trip to Port St,Mary Isle of Man. We slept in a church hall on straw pailiases. Me George and Im not too sure but Billy McNulty might have been with us. We went to Woolies and bought a few nick nacks and some other things that seemd to fall into our pockets. George was as far I know, the only one who wrote to his mum and sister nearly every day. He would send broches in the post. He had a wonderful temperament. He would never belong or imbibe to any violence group. In fact none of my Dingle friends had had any trouble with the police. gas stoichiometry worksheet Our parents strictly working class with Working class values,that’s how we were brought up.Also I had never heard of any violence towards old people in the neighbourhood. That’s not to say we were Angels we were’nt.. But avoided bad company whenever we could. Before I left Liverpool I remember reading in the Echo that George had just been made upto Sargeant in the Royal Marines! Would love to know what he’s upto.

Great to see your name Roy, there was only a couple of Halls in Matthew Arnold and Dingle Vale and I think it was you and me, I dont know if we are family,I moved out of the Dingle when I was 14 up to the green fields of Childwall, I have moved about all over the place in the last 53 years. Its great to see all the names I know from my school days . I delivered papers working for Mr Cooper in Cockburn Street, in the area the tennies and the shore field streets, I could always read the comics before any one else, in the summer months not the winter, it was a little on the cold side and there was always wind running up the river mersey. I can remember the smells first thing of a morning of toast some times bacon frying, if there was any other aromas I could not smell it as I could not wait to get home, to get my breakfast , it was specular on a Sunday, were everyone seemed to have a fry up or salt fish, ( did not like salt fish)At Christmas my packets would be full of coins with the tips that I had been given from very good natured people of my little area in the Dingle, god bless all of them.

Yes Syd I think you are right.There were few Hall’s about the Dingle I do remember you as I still have a photo of Matthew Arnold with all the kids we went to School with. Names like Billy Mcnulty,Barry Bilsborough (went to his 60th) Eddie Pope, Tony Edwards,Yourself and lots more whom I cannot recall their names. v gashi halil bytyqi My first job was in Waterworths Park Road. I started there when I was 13 just before Christmas I was amazed with the amount of tips I got. I gave my Mum the wages and kept the tips myself. I could go to the Gaumo’ and watch a U film! and buy an Orange Maid! We still have a Fry-up on Sunday (in Spain since 2009) but we have it for Brunch. I also moved around last place was Market Drayton Shropshire. Had enough of various things going on in UK mainly the bloody weather as we, my wife and I suffer from Arthritis so the warmer weather helps. The Dingle was a great place in Liverpool to be in it had it’s drawbacks but one thing for sure it taught you damn good Streetology which kept us out of trouble etc, Hope you have had a good Christmas mate, All the best from Roy.

Have just discovered this website. It’s fascinating that you worked in Waterworths. I remember Waterworths greengrocers because I lived close by, above Vickers Television and Radio shop on Park Road. Next door to us we had Cleggs the grocer and the other side of us was a dry cleaners. On the corner there was a butcher. My mother worked evenings for a while in Eric’s chippy around the corner for a bit of extra money. I remember that living conditions were pretty poor (we were lucky enough to have a nice pale green bathroom suite in the flat but the luxury was an illusion. There was no hot water coming out of the taps – we had to boil water up in a big electric cauldron and bale it into the bath with buckets!) but there was a good sense of community. electricity video bill nye I was good friends with a couple of the girls from the flats, Ann Dooley and Rita Aldridge. We all went to “Maggie Ann”, as did my twin brother. Mr Savage was his headmaster and the headmistress of the girl’s school was Miss Eaton-Jones. My favourite teacher was the art teacher, Mrs Rowley – she encouraged me with my painting and drawing and I subsequently trained as an art teacher myself.

The places I remember are the Capaldi where they had a juke box and the most amazing Italian ice cream, Rene’s, the Castle, Ray’s china shop and the Co-op where they had a system where they put your money into a sort of metal jar and it whizzed along wires to an office where they gave you your change and receipt and sent it whizzing back down to the counter!

Lots of comments on the website brought back memories. Unfortunately,though I recognise street names etc, I haven’t seen any names that ring a bell. I was wondering, Roy, if you remember any of these names, because I’d dearly love any reminiscences: Cathy and David Newman (twins), Stanley Billingsley, David Maltby, Edith Tyrer, Sue Bannon, Rita Daley, Rita Aldridge, Ann Dooley, Kathleen Brady. All good wishes to you and yours for 2014.
