Re: Bromborough Ju88 incident RWeth 22nd May 2024 10:52am
I am the son of one the crew members of that Ju88A - Unteroffizier Helmut WETH - who served as a radio operator and air gunner on that mission. I am still very interested in this somehow important part of our family history and would like to contact anyone who shared this interest. If so: please contact me directly. I am also in contact with the son of Helmut Brueckmann, the PIC of that plane - and we both think about visiting the place of the crash… How sorry that it took me such a long time to (re-)discover this website!

I don't have pictures but I believe my grandfather owned this club in the 50's & 60's. Possibly with his brother. Jack and Billy Magee

Re: What Happened To The Jiggers? diggingdeeper 17th May 2024 10:43pm
Crime, people dumping rubbish and criminals using them as escape routes. Also has the advantage that the council has to spend less money maintaining them.

Sign of the times, they used to be clear when I was young even though Birkenhead hadn't officially adopted them, Wallasey had.

The gates are a pain with vans, you never know in advance whether you will fit through the gates or not, assuming you can find someone that has bought a key. Even with vans that fit its usually uneven at the start, you line up perfectly but it can be a bit off once the rear wheels have gone over the uneven section and you have no space either side to correct plus you have your mirrors in. These are the same jiggers (entries) that the bin lorry used to reverse down at one time.

What Happened To The Jiggers? Erainn 17th May 2024 7:49pm
Scrolling around Google Maps for spots I recall in Birkenhead I'm surprised and puzzled to see steel gates blocking almost every entrance to the many jiggers at the back of so many of the old houses. Why have they been closed-off?

Re: Grange Rd Circus joney 16th May 2024 9:02am
I dont think the theatre was totally demolished. After a bombing raid in which the co-op was damaged a lot of stuff was thrown out of the back and amongst it was were rolls of theatre tickets and programmes as though there had been a storeroom untouched. I took some home, long since gone alas.

Correct Joney. The Co-op occupied buildings either side of St John's St in Grange Rd, 1952 Directory.

Re: Roofer recommendation please? haarlemmer 9th May 2024 5:29pm
Anybody looking here for recommendations, steer clear of Omega Roofing and UPVC. Three months after 'completing' the work (a new roof) and being paid they still haven't been to finish the final tasks which they said they needed to do after the scaffolding was down. Repeated calls and messages are ignored by Stephen.

Should have known - they are not registered with any of the trade bodies. Avoid.

I have pictures which show their unprofessional work.

Yes still there, I think occupied by TK Max and a building society, I don't go down very often so not sure of occupants. I'm sure an avid shopper will know.
