The Tibble Family



Where R U now? index page  


Do you remember the Tibble family that lived on the Hillside estate in the 1960s?

The website received this email in 2002 from Neil Tibble.

Hi Gary,
All of the family are doing well, here are the family names and ages for you. Geoff & Deborah (mum and dad) retired now and living in Mablethorpe. I've passed on details of the website and he's really keen to have a look.
The rest of the family...
Mark 48
Gary 46
Neil (me) 45
Yana 43
Gina & Dana 42(twins)
Michelle 40

     We moved to Wakefield just before I finished junior school. I know Yana used to visit Mr and Mrs Place who lived next door to us on Hillside Crescent for many years after we moved. I think she still keeps in touch with Carol Ralph's who lives on Hillside crescent. Melvyn Jones's dad was the caretaker at Brierley Hall and I remember they used to have an orchard at the back of the house. I bumped into Melvyn a few times in Wakefield quite a number of years ago but have not seen him since. We all have good memories of our time in Brierley albeit a short period in our lives. I have good memories of the school and will always remember Mrs Thorpe's kindness when she gave me a toy car when I'd lost mine. We couldn't afford replacements in those days! I also remember Mrs Fox, Mr Balmforth and also Mrs Webster who I think was the wife of the vicar of Felkirk who used to help out. I also remember one time when the ceiling fell in when we were in class. I think it was when the school had the institute over the road and it was closed after that. I think it was changed into a club later and my dad was involved in the committee for a time. Most of us went to Sunday school and also were in the choir. We are still in touch with Avril who taught us at Sunday school and is living in Wakefield. I don't have a photo of the family yet but should have it in a couple of weeks. I'll email a copy as soon as possible.
It would be great to get copies of some of the photos of us if they're emailable.

All the best and good work on the website.
