Catarina! I to went to the Paddy Black Memorial Mission in Trasdeston Street. In fact, Paddy was my grandfather and my mother was Guardian of the Guildry. My uncle was Jimmy Black who took over from Paddy. I well remember Band of Hope on a Wednesday Night. My maiden name was Pat Goodfellow. I would be glad to hear from anyone who remembers me!

I remember when we were young we used to go to the Band of Hope in Braid Street and Grove Street. Both in the Cowcaddens District.

We used to see silent films and sometimes in the Grove St. one we got tea and a bun.

We always felt we had to sneak in, in among our friends because some of us were Catholics. One nasty girl reported us and the man in charge told us it did not matter what religion we were, we were very welcome.
One of the popular films we saw was about a man who was always drunk and mistreated his family then he found God and became a good person. We always cheered at the end. laugh.gif

Patrick Black was my Grandfather's uncle. My Grandfather came to New Zealand in 1910 and all we had were a few photographs and the knowedge that the Mission had continued after Paddy's death in 1926. The family have always been interested in any information about the mission and contacting anybody who had information about it. And I would be especially pleased to contact any family members as I believe that he had two daughters. Carolyn

I also went to Paddy Blacks.......... .Have a lot of good memories of the Guildry Mrs Goodfellow , Picnic trips with the egg and spoon races, three legged race and many more...best part was every one always got a prize. Also remeber the Sunday School where you had to lear a verse and stand up and recite it,,,,then there was the choir. Friday night movies where great................this was in the 1945---1950"s Would you be the daughter?
